As the hospitality industry moves into post-pandemic recovery mode and the world returns to travel, Hilton has once again been recognised for its engaging and outstanding workplace culture by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
Named the second-best company to work for in the United States, this recognition marks Hilton’s seventh consecutive year on the prestigious ‘Best Companies to Work For’ list.
“This recognition is a testament to what we’ve built together at Hilton – a culture that’s welcoming, supportive and showcases the transformative impact our hospitality has with our guests, owners, communities and each other,” said Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton.
The past couple of years has brought many challenges to the industry. During this time, Hilton seized the opportunity to emerge stronger and continue to nurture a culture that recognises its team members as individuals with unique needs and goals.
Hilton aims to create a workplace culture that supports its team members throughout their personal and professional journeys and provides many best-in-class benefits, including increased parental leave, adoption assistance and extended bereavement leave. In 2021, the company also established a campaign to facilitate discussion around mental health and promote a culture of wellbeing.
Early 2022, Hilton partnered with Guild Education to offer a new continuing education benefit that allows its team members to access lifelong learning at no cost to them – this is a first for the hospitality industry.
To demonstrate the company’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in leadership roles, Hilton has set goals to reach global gender parity and 25 percent ethnic diversity at a corporate leadership level in the United States by 2027.
