UK hospitality businesses such as Hawksmoor and Marriott Hotels have been named in a list of the top 10 best hospitality companies to work for.

Employee engagement specialist Best Companies has created the list using information from a number of organisations in the industry, and it includes companies both big and small. According to the Best Companies, being on the list has a number of benefits, helping businesses to stand out from their competition, attract the best candidates, and increasing engagement with their employees.

'These companies have recognised that sustainable business success can only be achieved with engaged employees,' said Jonathan Austin, founder and chief executive of Best Companies. 'Any hospitality businesses that are proactively seeking to make their workplace better should look to these 10 organisations for best practice. They understand that a focus on employee engagement can help to attract and retain the best talent and, as a result, deliver stronger results in the long term.

'Earning a position on the list is a huge achievement in itself, but it's actually about so much more than pitting yourself against others. Working to constantly improve your employee engagement will make a real difference to your organisation, potentially leading to better customer service, higher sales, greater productivity and happier employees.'
