Hilton Worldwide listed among Fortune’s top 100 companies to work for
Hospitality company Hilton Worldwide has been listed as one of the best companies to work for in Fortune magazine’s annual list of ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’. In the list compiled by Fortune and Great place to Work®, a global research and consulting firm, the company was ranked 56th place, as a newcomer to the list.
“Our Team Members are the heart and soul of our business. We succeed when they succeed. Respecting, recognizing and rewarding them creates an environment where – together – we have created the world’s best hospitality company,” said Christopher J. Nassetta, president & CEO of Hilton Worldwide.
An employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about company practices and programs are included in the selection process. Great Place to Work® evaluates the applications using its methodology based on five dimensions; credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
“Hilton Worldwide creates remarkable careers for its team members. They listen closely to their Team Members to establish benefits and programs that matter to them most. In 2015, the company also introduced a new GED Assistance program to help employees in the U.S. earn their high school equivalency diploma,” Hilton Worldwide said in a press statement.
Great Place to Work® found that employees believe they work for great organisations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.
“Now more than ever, it is important for companies to prove they are great workplaces. Top talent expects as much as they seek new opportunities, and customers are demanding it as well as they decide where to spend their dollars. The 100 best workplaces are at the top of the heap in demonstrating they have a high-trust, high-performing culture.” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®.
