What you should know

Hilton focuses on taking care of the heart of its business – its people – through its Thrive@Hilton program, a partnership with Thrive Global. It focuses on caring for the whole person, mind, body, and soul, through programs dedicated to improving sleep, reducing stress, increasing mindfulness, and encouraging great work through innovation and professional development.

Another opportunity within the program is Thrive Sabbatical. Each year, 10 team members receive a four-week sabbatical with salary and benefits continuation, and a stipend of $5,000 to pursue a philanthropic project (Give a Dream) or achieve a personal goal (Live a Dream). This provides team members with the opportunity to give back to the community and enrich the lives of others through a philanthropic or volunteering activity of their choice.

The company provides opportunities for unemployed young people to enter the workforce, with a goal to help a million people reach their potential by 2019. The program is called Open Doors and it is designed to give young people job and life skills, and experience with the hospitality industry. Since 2012, Hilton has committed $7 million to its partnership with the International Foundation for Youth (IFY) to improve the wellbeing of young people around the world and tackle youth unemployment. .
