At Kimpton, nothing excites us more than knowing our guests are happy. The same goes for our own employees. So we’re absolutely thrilled to announce that for the 7th time, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has been named one of Fortune Magazine’s Best Companies to Work For. In fact, we came in at #20, the top hospitality company on the list!
This is something to celebrate – not for all the champagne toasts and parties we’ll have because of it (although, honestly, those will be fun too). We’re saluting the simple fact that our employees feel cared for and have a blast working for Kimpton. And it shows.
Since our company was founded 35 years ago, we’ve always focused on the importance of individuality, inclusiveness and diversity. In fact, we’re committed to encouraging our employees to bring their true selves to work and let them shine. We empower our employees to drive the company, regardless of their title, ranking or job description. What we end up with is vivacious energy, creative zing and a whole lot of love.
Our founder, Bill Kimpton, built our company around intuitive and heartfelt human connections. Internally, we call them Kimpton Moments – the times when our employees follow their instincts to make a guest or a team member feel happy and cared for. They’re usually out of the box. They’re always unscripted. Why? Because we couldn’t imagine it any other way. We’re compelled by the innate desire to be the best we can be, in the most natural of ways.
Above all, we believe that happy employees mean happy guests and that’s one winning formula that’ll never change. We can’t wait to welcome you in one of our 60 hotels and have you feel the Kimpton love firsthand.
