Employee’s views about their workplace have changed dramatically over the last three years – engagement, morale, life balance and community commitment now often play a bigger role in workplace satisfaction than compensation.

Prince Resorts Hawaii

For more than 30 years, Prince Resorts Hawaii (PRH) has been known for its outstanding luxury hotels and championship golf courses. The company has now solidified its reputation as a great place to work as well. PRH has an enviable record of employee satisfaction and retention, critically important in today’s changing labor market, perhaps this is due to its practice of empowerment and trust in employees.

It is inherent in everything they do. From upper management to line staff, every employee is encouraged and trained to make independent decisions that positively impact either the guest experience or the company’s operations. Good decision making is the result of a clearly defined vision, expectations, and an approachable leadership.

“We trust our employees to go beyond what is expected to let our guests know of their importance to us,” said Shigeki Yamane, president of PRH. “Our leadership team treats employees with the same respect and Aloha that we all show toward our guests. Genuine care for each other is a big part of our team’s success and happiness.”

To provide further growth opportunities, the Prince Leadership for Tomorrow (a platform for innovative collaboration across all hotels) is in its second year. With the all-inclusive benefits package PRH offers, and its mentorship and recognition programs, employees have the opportunity to build a career with a company that keeps them engaged, challenged and connected to the community.

PRH owns three luxury hotels and golf courses: Prince Waikiki, The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Hawaii Prince Golf Club, Hapuna Golf Course and Mauna Kea Golf Course. Prince Waikiki was recently awarded a 4 Diamond rating from AAA and all three hotels hold Hawaii Green Business Awards.
