TYSONS CORNER, Va. — Hilton Worldwide Holdings, Inc. has joined 28 other American businesses — including Apple, The Coca-Cola Company, Facebook and General Motors — in signing the White House’s Equal Pay Pledge.
The company has issued the following statement on the matter:
“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 per cent 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.”
