TakeCare Certification rewards organizations for creating an environment that supports holistic wellbeing
Marriott International announced today the rebranding and digital expansion of its Healthy Hotel Certification program with the launch of TakeCare Certification, which recognizes organizations of all types for creating an environment that supports holistic wellbeing and growth. TakeCare is Marriott’s award-winning approach to promoting employee wellbeing. The certification, which was previously available only to Marriott managed properties, is now available to all external organizations, including schools, volunteer organizations, non-profits, hospitals, offices, teams and communities, to help promote opportunity, community and purpose for all.
TakeCare Certification features new application questions and recognizes organizations with Silver, Gold, Platinum and Titanium awards. Organizations that complete the questionnaire are assigned a certification level based on their score. The questions range from “Do you offer healthy food and beverage choices at meetings or sponsored events?” to “Do you promote tools and resources that educate and support a diverse and inclusive culture?” and “Do you sponsor at least one day per year focused on volunteerism?”
“As we continue to grow the global TakeCare wellbeing brand, this certification will help promote the timeless people-first values behind Marriott’s culture beyond our hotels to organizations around the world,” said Dr. David Rodriguez, Executive Vice President and Global Chief Human Resources Officer at Marriott International. “It is a joy to see our company culture, which our founders created more than 90 years ago, as bold and timeless as ever.”
