    Hyatt Regency Chicago has been named in Chicago Tribune’s list of Top 100 Workplaces for the second year in a row. 

Hyatt Regency Chicago has been named in Chicago Tribune’s list of Top 100 Workplaces for the second year in a row. The hotel, which is the largest Hyatt property in the world, completed a three-year renovation in 2013 and was able to retain a significant amount of employees, which assisted in earning the honor.

The Hyatt Regency Chicago prides itself on the happiness of the employees and its retention rate. As of July 2013, the year-to-date turnover rate for the hotel was at 7.49 percent, as compared to a healthy total rate of around 15 percent.

"We are delighted that Hyatt Regency Chicago has been recognized by the Chicago Tribune as an amazing place to work," stated Patrick Donelly, General Manager of Hyatt Regency Chicago. "It is an honor to be recognized by the hardest working people in the business, our employees."

The Hyatt Regency Chicago features 2,019 guest rooms, 228,000 square feet of meeting and event space and five restaurants and lounges.
