Nowadays we are surrounded by Multinational Corporations in any domain; energy, real estate, food, logistics etc. With the popularity and notoriety they get by raising to such a big level, this exposure brings with itself different obligations especially towards the society and the surroundings of the company. Due to this fact, the vast majority of the respectable MNC are paying attention to their relationship with the society because after all, mass population can be both constructive, or destructive.
Within Marriott, the social issues are even more respected and taken care of, due to their company profile. When working with people, and for people, the company automatically becomes literally part of the society therefore will hold an even bigger “share” of obligations towards it. That is why specific programs were created in order to satisfy these obligations and contribute to the development of the community they will select their future employees from.
