At the hiring event, a roster of award-winning companies are offering hundreds of open positions, at all levels, in the fields of finance, IT, healthcare, customer service/client relations, sales and hospitality.

Featured companies include: Charles Schwab, Dignity Health Arizona, Synchrony Financial, Progrexion, USAA , GoDaddy, Hyatt Regency-Phoenix, Medtronic, Vanguard, ZocDoc, Yelp, Aetna and Edward Jones.

We look forward to participating in the Diversity and Inclusion Career Event to seek employees who are passionate about our mission,” says Jason Stevens, Site Director at Progrexion. “What is unique about Progrexion is that our employees are improving the lives of our customers one at a time by ensuring that they have a fair credit report and more financial freedom.” 

Shannon Feltes Grimes, Talent Attraction Manager of Charles Schwab, says, “Schwab is honored to be part of the BestCompaniesAZ Diversity Career Event. When Chuck started the firm, his vision was a world where investing was accessible to all investors. Because serving diverse investors requires diverse talent, we are committed to hiring and retaining employees from unique backgrounds, strengths and perspectives.  We have current career opportunities for job seekers at various stages in their career, from our Broker Training Program for those new to our industry, to the Relationship Specialist role in Advisor Services, to positions for both new and experienced technical professionals.  Once an employee has landed at Schwab, they will experience an inclusive, collaborative culture driven by our employees’ individual strengths.”

Hyatt Regency Scottsdale honored for excellence

Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account reviews ratings. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, volume and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa and we’d like to thank all of our past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said Peter Rice, General Manager of Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa. “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.
