Great Place to Work's annual study of Asia's Best Workplaces research reveals that employees at the top 60 Best Workplaces in Asia indicate that managers behaving in a respectful way is the most significant factor for employees to have the desire to remain in the current jobs. 

"We are thrilled to be recognized as one of Asia's Best Multinational Workplaces," said Martin Rinck, Area President of Asia Pacific, Hilton. "Our Team Members are at the core of our success -- the heart and soul of Hilton. I am extremely proud of our Team Members in Asia Pacific and the incredible culture that we have built together which allows us to deliver the world's best hospitality - both to our guests as well as to our amazing Team Members."

Hilton offers leading programs that deliver Team Members great environments, careers and rewards. In Asia Pacific these include:

  • Heart of House, an initiative that creates own-able space, reflective of Hilton's values, for Team Members. To make Hilton a great place to work, features such as Wi-Fi, popular food offerings and inviting décor in the back-of-house areas are designed to mirror the hospitality each hotel extends to their guests.
  • Travel with Purpose, Hilton's corporate responsibility commitment enables Team Members to positively impact local environments and communities around the world through initiatives such as Travel with Purpose Action Grants, Global Month of Service, and Earth Week.
  • Celebrating diversity in the workplace through initiatives such as Women in Leadership workshops and conferences that have empowered more than 420 female Team Members in 2016, helping them in their career journeys. This commitment was reinforced when Hilton pledged to further drive diversity across Asia Pacific as a Singapore IMPACT Champion in support of HeForShe, an UN-led gender equality movement.

In announcing the Best Companies in Asia, Great Place to Work CEO Michael Bush said, "Being on the list is more than being recognized as a Great Place to Work. A high-trust culture helps you attract people, improves your performance, retains your top talent, fosters innovation, and assures a sustainable business. Bottom-line, a Great Place to Work for All is better for business, because you're developing the full human potential of everyone on your team."
