Hilton Ranked #1 Workplace for Parents for Second Consecutive Year
World’s most hospitable company recognized for parent-friendly workplace culture
MCLEAN, Va. - For the second consecutive year, Hilton has topped the Best Workplace for Parents list by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work®. This recognition marks the third year in a row that the global hospitality company has ranked among the top workplaces for parents in the U.S. and the second year in a row at the number one spot. Parents at Hilton appreciate an inclusive environment coupled with industry-leading benefits thoughtfully designed to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
“Our Team Members deliver the light and warmth of hospitality not only within our hotels and communities, but within their own families,” said Matt Schuyler, chief human resources officer at Hilton. “Our Hilton family is more impactful for the vibrant diversity of experiences, backgrounds and viewpoints represented within our team, including our working parents, and we are proud to create a supportive environment so that all of our Team Members can thrive in the ways that matter most to them.”
Hilton’s family-friendly support spans the parenthood journey with benefits including a flexible working environment, financial wellbeing tools, and best-in-class parental leave, which was recently extended by two weeks, providing birth mothers with an industry-leading 12 weeks of paid time off, and four weeks of fully paid time off for fathers and adoptive parents.
“As a parent, one of the most important things to me is having a family-friendly work environment that offers the flexibility and balance of work and family, so I can always be there for the people in my life who depend on me most,” said Tiffany King, Director of Advertising and Marketing, Hilton Hawaiian Village, who recently used the maternity leave policy to spend time with her newborn.
As part of its holistic approach, Hilton introduced an industry-first partnership with Milk Stork earlier this year, which enables Team Members to easily ship or carry breast milk home to their babies at no cost while on business travel in the United States.
Hilton also supports Team Members’ paths to parenthood through an adoption assistance program that offers reimbursement for expenses incurred while adopting, up to $10,000 per child.
Additional family-friendly benefits include a Parents Concierge where expecting parents can access anything they need to know about transitioning to and from work, as well as extended bereavement leave, generous paid time off and exclusive travel discounts that empower Team Members to spend more time together creating memorable experiences.
This news comes just months after Hilton was recognized as the #1 Best Workplace for Women in the U.S. and #2 Best Workplace in the World. Other recognitions include being named a Top 10 Company for Diversity by DiversityInc and the #1 Company to Work for in the U.S.
