Great diversity at Choice Hotels

Choice Hotels has been recognized as a “Best Place to Work” for its dedication to diversity and the overall wellness of its employees.

Forbes and Statista selected the World’s Best Employers 2022 through an independent survey applied to a vast sample of approximately 150,000 employees from 57 countries working full or part time. 800 employers were awarded.

The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees that were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
