Hilton Named the #1 Best Workplace for Women in the U.S.
Hilton recognized for industry-leading benefits, development opportunities and inclusive culture
MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) has ranked #1 on the Best Workplaces™ for Women U.S. list by Fortune and Great Place to Work®. This impressive rise from #14 in 2018 underscores the company’s continued investment in women-focused initiatives, a robust program of partnerships, learning and development options and industry-leading benefits.
More than half of all Hilton employees in the U.S. are women, including 53% at the management level. Women at Hilton – in corporate offices and across owned and managed properties – have access to a number of programs designed to encourage women’s success at various stages of their careers. They can also take advantage of the growing list of family-friendly benefits, including a flexible working environment, adoption assistance, the recently announced expanded parental benefits and partnership with Milk Stork.
“Women at Hilton – from hotel Team Members to corporate executives – help provide the hospitality our guests expect. To ensure they’re empowered to be their best, it’s important that we create meaningful opportunities and an inclusive environment,” said Matt Schuyler, chief human resources officer at Hilton. “This recognition and ranking is validation that our approach to create a workplace where all of our Team Members can thrive is working.”

“The development of all our Team Members is critical to our overall success as we strive to create meaningful opportunities for Team Members of all backgrounds,” said Laura Fuentes, chief talent officer at Hilton. “Earlier this year, Hilton was the first and only hospitality company to join MAKERS, pledging our commitment to investing in women Team Members throughout every stage of their careers. Adding Best Workplaces™ for Women U.S. to our list of honors exemplifies our commitment to cultivate a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels supported and able to bring their full selves to work so they can be their best.”
