Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc., formerly Hilton Hotels Corporation, is an American multinational hospitality company that manages and franchises a broad portfolio of hotels and resorts. Founded by Conrad Hilton in May 1919, the corporation is now led by Christopher J. Nassetta. Hilton is headquartered in Tysons Corner, Virginia, U.S. As of June 30, 2020, its portfolio includes 6,215 properties (including timeshare properties) with 983,465 rooms in 118 countries and territories.
As the pandemic took hold in 2020, Hilton quickly responded to team member needs by ensuring meaningful opportunities and a workplace culture that reflects the unique times being faced. The company did so through the continuous development of impactful programs such as Courageous Conversations, a global, virtual learning series featuring internal and external thought leaders exploring elements of diversity, equity and inclusion. The series provides a space for team members to engage in effective, open dialogue to help drive greater awareness, understanding and a more inclusive workplace.
Recognizing the significance of mental wellness especially over the past year, Hilton continues to stress the importance of flexibility with its team members. The company will also be launching a mental health campaign in the coming weeks offering team members new tools and resources to help them thrive in mind, body and spirit, in and out of the workplace.
“I am so proud of our Hilton family and honored by this recognition of our incredible culture – especially in light of the profound impact the pandemic has had on our business,” said Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton. “This recognition is a true testament to the culture we have built together and that we’ve worked so hard to protect during the most challenging year in our history. Our commitment to creating a great place to work for all has never been stronger, and I look forward to what the future holds.”
