Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island Recognized by South Carolina Chamber as “Best Places to Work”


Hilton Head Island, S.C., July 02, 2018 — Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island, an award-winning resort nestled along the oceanfront, has been named as one of South Carolina’s Best Places to Work for 2018. Out of all contestants and awardees, Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island was the only hotel or resort in the state to be given this accolade.  This initiative is dedicated to finding and recognizing South Carolina’s top employers.


“We are incredibly excited to receive such an honor,” said Jay Wiendl, general manager of Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island. “We take pride in not only keeping our customers happy but our employees happy, as well. This group of exemplary employers is one we will strive to continue to be part of in the future.”


The Best Places to Work project, managed by Best Companies Group, involves a questionnaire and a survey, each of which is completed by employees of nominated companies. By researching the dynamics and characteristics that make participating companies tick, Best Companies Group can determine which employers are defining and leading the way in employee experience.
