MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide announced today that it was selected as one of the 2016 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For, by global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine. This list recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures.
The selection process includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about company practices and programs. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
"Our Team Members are the heart and soul of our business," said Christopher J. Nassetta, president & CEO of Hilton Worldwide. "We succeed when they succeed. Respecting, recognizing and rewarding them creates an environment where - together - we have created the world's best hospitality company."
Creators of the methodology behind the list, Great Place to Work®, have found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.
Hilton Worldwide listens closely to its Team Members to help create the benefits and programs that matter most to them. Examples include industry-leading parental leave policies that provide ten weeks of fully paid leave for mothers, as well as paid time off for fathers and adoptive parents.
