Hilton Joins Other Leading Companies in White House Equal Pay Pledge

PRESS RELEASE


Hilton Worldwide (No. 42 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list) joined 28 other leading American businesses in signing the White House’s Equal Pay Pledge. Hilton issued the following statement on signing the White House’s pledge:

“At Hilton, we are proud of our long history of supporting a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our goal is clear – we strive for an inclusive work environment that allows all of our Team Members to be comfortable bringing their entire selves to work every day. Simply put, our culture is a reflection of the backgrounds, passions and perspectives of all of our Team Members around the world. To be the most hospitable company in the world, we must also represent the many different cultures, backgrounds and viewpoints of our guests, which includes supporting and empowering women at every level of our organization. In fact, women make up more than 50 percent of our global workforce.

In this regard, we are honored to join the White House in signing the Equal Pay Pledge. We are committed to advancing our efforts in ensuring equity not only in our pay practices, but also across recruitment, learning and development, benefits, and our overall Team Member value proposition. In doing so, we continue to deliver on our promise of a great environment, great careers and great rewards for all of our Team Members.

Supporting women in the workplace is part of who we are. In fact, we provide a wide-range of opportunities for women such as our Women’s Team Member Resource Group, Women’s Executive Networking Program, and Women in Leadership Excellence Program in partnership with the University of Virginia. Most recently, we were honored to be selected by DiversityInc as one of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity, the Human Rights Campaign rated us at 100 percent on their Corporate Equality Index, and Professional Woman’s Magazine named us as a Top Diversity Employer of Women. We were also chosen by the Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund for being one of the highest-rated companies in the world for advancing women leadership. Additionally, we are committed to offering family-focused benefits across our hotels and offices, including our industry-leading maternity leave policy, flexible working environments, 10-day advanced scheduling, paid time off, and educational assistance.”
