SINGAPORE – Hilton (NYSE: HLT), the fastest-growing hospitality company in Asia Pacific, has been named the top hospitality company to work for in Great Place to Work®’s “Best Workplaces in Asia™” list for the sixth year running – and third in the top 100 companies across all industries in the multinational category.
The win comes off the back of a number of individual country accolades awarded to Hilton this year, including rankings amongst the Best Workplaces in Australia, Greater China, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka as well as certifications as a Great Place To Work® in six countries including Fiji, Malaysia, Maldives, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and Thailand. In March this year, Hilton was also named the “Best Workplace for Women in Greater China™” for the third consecutive year by Great Place To Work®.
“As a business of people serving people, our team members are at the heart of everything we do. To have made the coveted Best Workplaces in Asia™ list – and remained the top hospitality company to work for especially as we emerge from the global pandemic where Travel and Tourism was amongst the hardest hit – is true testament to the purpose-driven culture we have built. We are incredibly proud of the 46,000 team members who are the driving force behind our strong workplace culture – their commitment to delivering unwavering hospitality to our guests, communities and each other have made this remarkable win possible,” said Alan Watts, President – Asia Pacific, Hilton.

Notes to Editors:
Thrive at Hilton
Launched globally in 2017, Thrive at Hilton is Hilton’s employer value proposition that cultivates meaningful opportunities and a workplace culture where all 46,000 of its team members across Asia-Pacific can thrive – regardless of background, role, and location. Through industry-leading programs, Hilton is investing in its team members on both a professional and personal level – whether this means helping them to grow their life-long careers through extensive continuing education and development programs or supporting them through life’s most important moments.
In June this year, Hilton expanded its ‘Care for All’ platform – an industry-leading caregiving initiative designed to support team members who are caregivers, broadening Hilton’s mental wellbeing initiative by extending support to team members beyond their own self-care and enable care for others. The program complements Hilton’s existing efforts to destigmatize and draw greater awareness to the importance of mental wellness and introduce more initiatives in response to the pandemic, ensuring that employees have a strong foundation for their health and wellbeing. In addition to Hilton’s extensive continuing education and career development programs such as Hilton University, Hilton offers team members the chance to be awarded an all-expenses paid, month-long sabbatical to pursue a cause close to their hearts with Thrive Sabbatical. There are also many opportunities for recognition through programs such as Catch Me at My Best, the CEO Light & Warmth Awards and Team Member Appreciation Week that acknowledge team members at all levels from guests, peers, and managers.
Diversity & Inclusion
Hilton has set new targets for diversity, equity, and inclusion, with the aim to achieve gender parity in leadership roles by 2027, including increasing its female General Manager percentage to 27%. Team Member Resource Groups (TMRG), of which two have been set up in Asia Pacific, have also been a powerful resource in empowering workplace diversity through thoughtful activities and conversations. The Women’s TMRG and Pride TMRG provide ecosystems that inspire growth and empower team members with opportunities to build relationships and allyships with their peers and leaders, enabling them to thrive holistically.
Hilton’s industry-leading travel program rewards team members and their loved ones with exclusive travel discounts and benefits and allows team members to explore the world and experience any of Hilton’s 18 world-class brands comprising 7,000 properties and 1.1 million rooms, in 122 countries and territories.
