The significant advantage brought by Marriott Haiti, in terms of service, it is its own management. Indeed, the hotel is managed by the Marriott group itself, to ensure a quality service that meets the very stringent criteria of the brand. Thus, customers will receive the same service and the same attention as in any other Marriott worldwide.
This new hotel will create about 200 permanent jobs and help stimulate the local economy by using, whenever possible, local resources (agricultural products, livestock production, decoration and home goods) and finally to participate in the stimulus of the tourist offer in Haiti by providing top service. To do this, Marriott Haiti works in partnership with several local institutions such as Afè Nèg Combite (fruits and vegetables), Ayiti Natives (cosmetics), Rebo (coffee shop), to which will be add other partners.
At the head of the hotel, a management team composed primarily of professionals with long experience in the Marriott chain, foreign and Haitian diaspora (8%). There notably 60% of women in executive positions at Marriott Haiti, including two Haitian women Sharon Sylhomme, to the Financial Directorate, and Edwidge Solages in the Human Resources Directorate, and a French Elsa Sammartano in the Marketing and Sales Directorate.
Marriott Haiti is staffed 99% of Haitians including supervisory positions. The company also places emphasis on training by encouraging its employees to continue to learn outside of their working time by providing free online courses and a computer lab. Once in the group, it is a local or international career that awaits them.
