EMPLOYMENT SAFETY & CLEANLINESS
The safety and health of our associates and guests is our number one priority. In order to maintain a safe work environment, the Kansas City Marriott Downtown has implemented Marriott's global Commitment to Clean program to help protect associates, guests, visitors, and vendors on our property. As part of the Commitment to Clean initatives, our safety enhancements include proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), associate temperature checks with advanced technology, additional handwashing and hand sanitizing standards, social distancing practices, and cleanliness and safety training.
Advanced technology is used throughout the building to maintain contactless practices, property cleaning enhancements, and optimal air quality conditions.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
Our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in the workforce is driven by our 90 year history of putting people first. For over 20 years Marriott has offered supplier diversity programs, women's leadership development programs, and diverse hotel ownership initatives. Through community partnerships, strategic hiring efforts, diversity celebrations and educational campaigns, we continue to foster and grow a culture of inclusion. We are committed to creating a welcoming environment where each associate feels like a valued member of our team. Our TakeCare commitment to promote opportunity, community and purpose for all helps cultivate a supportive environment where associates are respected and celebrated.
