Hilton Worldwide wins top hospitality company to work for in the UAE, by Great Place to Work.
Hilton Worldwide, which welcomes guests to 22 properties in the UAE and has plans to open 17 additional UAE hotels in the coming years, was ranked as the leading hospitality company on the list, and as a top 10 company in the emirates. The recognition was underpinned by the company’s team of professionals providing learning and development programmes, such as access to Hilton Worldwide University, an online resource offering over 2,500 learning opportunities across e-learning, webinars, eBooks and articles.
“We are extremely passionate about recognizing the vital contribution Team Members, as the Heart of Hilton, make to our organisation as we continue to grow our portfolio across the UAE. To be recognized as the greatest hospitality company to work for in the UAE is testament to Hilton’s care for our teams and to our commitment to building rewarding careers for all,” said, Koray Genckul, senior director, human resources, Hilton Worldwide Middle East and Africa and Turkey.
Commenting on the Top Companies list, Maha Zaatari, managing director of Great Place to Work in the UAE, said: “There is no doubt that this year’s competition was the toughest since we introduced the annual benchmarking program six years ago. The top 20 list makers truly understand how investing in their workplace cultures leads to stronger business and people performance within their organisations.”
