What a year 2018 was! From new brand launches to inaugural Great Place to Work wins to connecting with Team Members around the world, we covered it all. As we reflect back on all we accomplished in the past year, a few stand out moments come to mind. Keep reading to learn more about Hilton Careers’ top moments from 2018 and special thanks to our Team Members who made this the best year yet.
1. Launched our newest brand: Motto by Hilton
In October of this year, we launched our newest brand: Motto by Hilton. Motto is a band of micro-hotels with an urban vibe in prime global locations and designed to offer social hubs, warm workspaces, and personal havens. Guest or local, together or solo. Motto is the hotel for everyone! Check out our feature of new brand head, Tripp McLaughlin, on Instagram here, and see our behind the scenes event coverage in our “In Case You Missed It” story here.
2. Recognized as a great place to work for all!
At Hilton, we take pride in creating a work environment that makes Hilton a great place to work for all. In 2018, FORTUNE recognized Hilton as the #1 Best Workplace for Parents, the #1 Best Workplace for Diversity, #14 out of 100 Best Workplace for Women, and #4 on Great Places to Work for employers in Australia. Shout out to our Team Members who made all these awards possible!
3. Showcased #WomenatHilton during Women’s History Month
We celebrated #WomenatHilton throughout the entire month of March. The women at Hilton inspire, motivate, and drive us to reach our full potential. This campaign highlighted how they are paving the way in hospitality, thriving at work and home, and inspiring the next generation of hospitality leaders!
4. Celebrated National Adoption Day
At Hilton, we believe in family. We know that families form in many ways, which is why we introduced an Adoption Assistance Benefit that contributes $10,000 to help Team Members offset the cost of adoption. The program helps Team Members like Rick start families on their own. This year, we were honored to be included as one of the 100 Best Adoption Friendly Workplaces in 2018 by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
5. Featured endless Careers@Hilton opportunities
We may be biased, but we think hospitality is the best industry to work in! From property roles to corporate positions, the opportunities to grow your career at Hilton are endless. We featured Team Member stories, advice to grow your career, and real tips for getting hired. Want to know more about working at Hilton?

6. Joined in the fun for Pride Month
At Hilton, we celebrate diversity and individualism. This year was no different! We participated in Pride Parades around the world. It was a beautiful representation from corporate and local teams! Hear from Charles about his day at DC Pride here.
7. Honored our active and retired military and their families
At Hilton, we’ve made a pledge to hire 20k veterans and their families by 2020 through our Operation Opportunity program. In November, we highlighted military and their families and featured tips for veterans on how to transition to the civilian sector. If you’re a veteran, military spouse, or transitioning from a military to civilian career, check out our tips to get hired at Hilton.
8. Took you behind the scenes with Team Members around the world
We took our followers behind the scenes and around the world through the eyes of our Team Members. From Singapore, to London and Latin America, our Team Members shared what it’s like to work for Hilton and what they love about their jobs.
