National Adoption Day: Hilton an Industry Leader in Family Benefits, Support
This Saturday is National Adoption Day in the U.S., a day that aims to raise awareness of the adoption process.
At Hilton, we know that families form in many ways and so in 2017 we introduced an Adoption Assistance Benefit that contributes $10,000 to Team Members to help offset the cost of adoption. Additionally, new adoptive parents receive two weeks of fully paid parental leave. We were honored to be recognized for these benefits and our support of adoptive families by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption as one of its 100 Best Adoption Friendly Workplaces 2018.
In additional to industry-leading health and welfare benefits, other family-friendly benefits Hilton Team Members enjoy include:
- Industry leading Paid Time Off and Go Hilton: Exclusive travel perks that allow Team Members, as well as their friends and family, to make travel memories together. In 2019, to coincide with Hilton’s 100th anniversary, the number of nights available will increase to a total of 100.
- Maternity Leave: New mothers in the US who give birth receive a total of 10 weeks of fully paid leave
- Financial Education: In 2019, Hilton will introduce a program to help Team Members upskill their financial acumen, covering topics ranging from smart budgeting, saving, to planning for life events
