MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE:HLT) has been recognized for its extraordinary workplace culture, earning the highest honor on the prestigious 2020 Fortune Best Companies to Work For® in the U.S. list for the second consecutive year. Hilton is the first and only hospitality company in history to achieve the No. 1 ranking, and to do so two years in a row. In its fifth consecutive year on the list, the global hospitality company joins a distinguished handful of companies to ever earn the top spot two years running.
“Our Team Members are truly the driving force behind our incredible workplace culture. They are the heart and soul of our Hilton family and are responsible for delivering on the promise we make to our guests to provide exceptional experiences both here in the U.S. and around the world,” said Chris Nassetta, President and CEO, Hilton. “There is no more fitting way to begin our next century of hospitality than by celebrating our Team Members and thanking each and every one of them for the meaningful ways – big and small – they have created a welcoming place for all.”
Hilton takes great care to cultivate meaningful opportunities and a workplace culture where all Team Members can thrive and be their best selves. The company does so through the continuous development of impactful programs that support and invest in Team Members in ways that matters most to them both personally and professionally, from achieving the next step in their career, to seeing the world with their family and friends.
In the past year alone, Hilton has improved its industry-leading programs and benefits by expanding its parental leave policy, introducing additional development opportunities and comprehensive benefits tailored for the veteran community, and launching an industry-first partnership with Milk Stork to make travel easier for working parents.
These thoughtful enhancements join Hilton’s other comprehensive Team Member benefits including generous paid time off and exclusive Team Member travel perks and discounts, paid sabbatical opportunities, and extensive continuing education and career development programs.
Most recently, Hilton has invested in new tools and a leadership development framework to create pathways for new responsibility, career advancement and continuous learning opportunities for Team Members at every level.
“This recognition speaks to the results of our ongoing efforts to create an inclusive workplace that gives all of our Team Members a sense of family and belonging,” said Matt Schuyler, Chief Human Resources Officer, Hilton. “We are honored to be recognized as the best company to work for and grateful to our Team Members for the unique and diverse experiences they bring to work every day that strengthen our culture and truly make Hilton a great place to work for all.”
With a workforce spanning nearly 430,000 people across 119 countries and territories, this recognition is a result of positive feedback direct from Team Members. Over the past four years, Hilton has been ranked as a best place to work more than 100 times by the Great Place to Work Institute, including #1 in Italy, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Argentina and Peru, the #2 World’s Best Workplace, #1 Best Workplace for Parents and #1 Best Workplace for Women.

Hilton recently received further recognition for its outstanding workplace culture, named as one of the World’s Best Workplaces by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work. For the second consecutive year, Hilton has ranked #2 on the list of the top 25 companies and remains the only hospitality company on the list. Hilton Team Members at the world’s most hospitable company said the culture, benefits and travel perks make it a great place to work.
Hilton aims to create an environment that provides meaningful opportunities for personal and professional growth that are unrivaled in the hospitality industry and highly competitive with major corporations. In the past year alone, Hilton has announced enhanced family-friendly benefits, including expanded parental leave, adoption assistance, extended bereavement leave, access to Milk Stork, paid time off and Go Hilton rates to enable Team Members to spend time making memories with their families.
These programs are part of Thrive at Hilton, a Team Member value proposition that offers a flexible ecosystem of offerings designed to meet individual Team Member needs and are in addition to a flexible work environment, innovative learning and development opportunities and volunteer opportunities. Hilton’s robust people programs are often a direct result of Team Member feedback with the annual global team member survey boasting a 92% completion rate. Unlike many corporations, Hilton provides the same industry-leading benefits to both hourly and salaried Team Members.
Over the past four years, Hilton has been ranked as a best place to work more than 100 times by the Great Place to Work Institute, including the #1 Best Company to Work for in the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Italy, Turkey and for Women (U.S.) in this year alone.

Parents at Hilton appreciate an inclusive environment coupled with industry-leading benefits thoughtfully designed to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
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 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.
