Hilton has been named the No. 1 World’s Best Workplace by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work. This accolade, a first for any hospitality company, marks the culmination of Hilton’s consistent presence on the “World’s Best” list for eight consecutive years.
Since its first appearance on this prestigious list in 2016, Hilton has been steadfast in nurturing a strong, inclusive culture. The company’s focus on creating a supportive workplace environment offers robust growth opportunities and is driven by a clear purpose. This approach has empowered its 460,000 team members globally, enabling them to excel in their roles every day.
Chris Nassetta, President and CEO of Hilton, reflected on this achievement, “Our team members are united by a common purpose: to fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality, a vision set by Conrad Hilton over a century ago. Today’s recognition is a testament to their dedication, hospitality, and passion. It validates that they are the people Conrad Hilton envisioned in his dream for the future.”
Hilton’s commitment to an inclusive culture is evident in its support for team members at every stage of their personal and professional journey, encouraging them to bring their authentic selves to work. The company offers best-in-class benefits, including expanded parental leave, adoption assistance, and attractive travel benefits through the Go Hilton team member travel program.
In a significant move, Hilton and the Hilton Global Foundation announced the launch of Hilton Cares, a program set to provide $500,000 in scholarships and financial assistance for team members and community members passionate about careers in hospitality. The program is slated to open for applications in early 2024.
Hilton’s efforts extend to increasing workplace flexibility across its properties and corporate offices. The company is dedicated to providing a value proposition that offers a flexible ecosystem of offerings, ensuring team members feel supported and valued.
Laura Fuentes, Chief Human Resources Officer at Hilton, stated, “We are building a fully human experience at work. Today’s recognition reinforces what employees seek – a culture that helps them reach their full potential.”
Hilton’s approach is structured around four pillars: Inclusion, Wellness, Growth, and Purpose. These pillars have been instrumental in Hilton’s recognition as a top employer globally, including being named the Best Workplace for Women in the U.S. and the No. 1 Best Workplace in multiple countries throughout 2023.
This recognition by Fortune and Great Place to Work is based on direct feedback from a diverse workforce spanning 124 countries and territories. Hilton’s consistent appearance on over 450 Great Place to Work lists since 2016 underscores its commitment to being an employer of choice worldwide.
