Our Purpose, Goal and Values
To care for people so they can be their best.
To become the most preferred hospitality brand—loved and respected by colleagues, guests, owners, operators, community members and shareholders.
Respect, integrity, humility, empathy, creativity and fun are our shared core values.
Our purpose, goal and values are brought to life by our colleagues, whom we refer to as the Hyatt family. We believe that our colleagues embody our purpose of caring for people, including each other, our guests and ultimately our owners. This commitment to genuine service and care is what differentiates us and drives guest preference. The management teams at each of our managed properties lead by example, and we provide them with the appropriate autonomy to make operational decisions in the best interest of the hotel and brand. We believe the managers of our franchised properties are experienced operators with high standards who have demonstrated commitment to our values and our approach to caring for guests to enhance guest satisfaction. High levels of guest satisfaction lead to increased guest preference for our brands, which we believe results in a strengthened revenue base over the long term. We also believe that engaged colleagues will enhance efficient operation of our properties, resulting in improved financial results for our property owners. Sustained adherence to these principles is a basis for our brand reputation and is one of the principal factors behind the decisions by our diverse group of hotel owners and developers to invest in the Hyatt portfolio of properties around the world. We work with existing and prospective hotel owners and developers to increase our presence around the world, which we expect will lead to guest satisfaction, brand preference and new channels for professional growth for our colleagues.
