Every day, Hilton Team Members across the globe expertly navigate complex, multi-faceted ethics questions, from safeguarding communities to data privacy and protection. This week, for the third consecutive year, Hilton has been identified as one of the 2020 World’s Most Ethical Companies, by the global leader in assessing and advancing ethical business practices.
“Ethical decision-making is central to our values and the profoundly positive impact we have for not only our guests and owners, but also our Team Members and communities around the world,” said Kristin Campbell, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Hilton. “I am so proud of the steady character, integrity and stewardship with which our teams approach their work.”
The designation is backed by Ethisphere’s rigorous assessment across corporate culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity and initiatives aimed at supporting a strong value chain.
This recognition of Hilton’s purpose-driven strategy and positive impact comes just a week after earning top honors for its workplace culture, having been named the #1 Best Company to Work For in the U.S. for the second year in a row.
The strong culture by which Team Members are inspired to embrace company values and feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work correlates with those same Team Members pursuing ethical decisions within their own business functions, encouraging the same in their colleagues, and knowing that they can feel safe and supported speaking out.
As an important part of its strategy to promote ethical behavior, Hilton continues finding new ways to reach Team Members with meaningful training and communications, tailored to their role, location and language. From bite-size video training to online courses, the programs are made more impactful by their direct relation to specific roles and more effective by their method of delivery.
