MCLEAN, Va. – Today, global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine announced that Hilton (NYSE:HLT) has been recognized as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women in 2017. Fortune’s third annual list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women highlights companies with generous benefits, flexible schedules, and an emphasis on balancing work and life. Rankings are determined by employee surveys and the representation of women within the organizations.
“We are honored and proud to be listed as one of the best places to work for women for the second year in a row,” said Laura Fuentes, Senior Vice President, Talent, Rewards and People Analytics, Hilton. “Our Purpose is to be the most hospitable company in the world and we extend the essence of this to both our guests and Team Members. Our women leaders are a unique source of talent, expertise and inspiration, bringing valued diversity of thought and experience to the workplace.”
