HOLLYWOOD, FLA.—Hard Rock International has been recognized as one of America’s Best Employers by Forbes Magazine in the category of Diversity within the travel and leisure category. The business magazine in partnership with Statista, a leading provider of market and consumer data, created this prestigious list of the top 500 companies employing at least 1,000 people in the United States. The results are based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 60,000 U.S. employees representing more than 1,700 organizations. Survey respondents were asked questions regarding their employer and topics of age, gender equality, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQA+ and general diversity.
“We are honored to be recognized as an organization that promotes diversity throughout all ranks of the company,” said David Carroll, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Hard Rock International. “The award from Forbes Magazine promotes a deep sense of pride throughout our organization and we are thrilled to be amongst the top companies in the U.S. in this category.”
