Global hospitality company Hilton has been certified as a ‘Great Place to Work’ for the first time in the Maldives.
The certificate is awarded by the global research and consulting firm Great Place To Work®.
This year, Hilton was named Singapore’s top hospitality company and the highest-ranked hospitality company in Sri Lanka and the Philippines. Hilton was also certified as a ‘Great Place to Work’ for the second time in Malaysia and Thailand.
“Receiving consistent recognition for our culture across South East Asia is a true honour and reflection of how our team members have come together to ensure Hilton continues to be an inclusive and welcoming workplace,” said Alexandra Murray, area vice president & head of South East Asia, Hilton.
“Being a business of people serving people, we are fully committed to ensuring that our team members continue to thrive as they deliver unparalleled hospitality to all our guests. As we continue to expand our presence and double our portfolio in South East Asia in the coming years, we will continue to invest in our team members and ensure Hilton remains a great place to work for all.”
To be certified as a Great Place to Work, companies must meet the minimum quantitative threshold on an employee survey, which gathers feedback on how credibility, respect, fairness, camaraderie and pride are expressed in the workplace.
Hilton celebrated the accolades as proof of its “unwavering commitment to be the employer of choice for nearly 10,000 team members in South East Asia, guided by its purpose-driven culture in creating an inclusive environment where team members are able to bring their most authentic selves to work, realise their potential and enable their growth.”
