Hilton has maintained its position as the number one 'Great Place to Work' in Saudi Arabia for the second year in a row.

Celebrating the announcement at a gala ceremony in Riyadh last week, Kamel Ajami, vice president operations, Saudi Arabia & Levant, Hilton said: “We are delighted to have been placed first in the 'Great Place to Work' Saudi Arabia list for the second year in a row. Our team members are at the heart of everything we do, and their hard work, passion and commitment are at the core of our success. This 'Great Place to Work' achievement is a testament to the amazing culture we’ve built together, centred on our company’s mission to be the most hospitable company in the world.”

As part of its long-standing commitment to helping team members live their best lives, last year Hilton launched its new value proposition, Thrive@Hilton. Through initiatives such as building in time to recharge during the workday, sabbaticals and modern tools for increasing recognition, the scheme enables team members to flourish in body, mind and spirit, ultimately supporting the company’s continued success and help attract top talent.

As a global hospitality company serving guests in 105 countries and territories, Hilton also encourages its team members to explore the world of progression opportunities available across the globe.   

Hilton also offers industry-leading learning and development opportunities to team members including access to Hilton University, an online platform offering more than five million hours of training through 2,500 courses. In addition, Hilton offers team members world-class rewards and benefits such as the team member Travel Programme which enables all members to enjoy discounted rates at Hilton’s hotels.

Hilton is committed to achieving diversity and aims to increase the number of females in leadership positions. Last year, the company also announced the introduction of a minimum of 12 weeks’ fully-paid maternity leave for female team members in the Middle East and Africa. Hilton will also be holding a ‘Women in Leadership’ conference for its female team members in Saudi Arabia in April to empower and inspire current and future female leaders.

Hilton currently welcomes guests to 11 properties in Saudi Arabia and plans to further develop 34 hotels. - TradeArabia News Service
