These Are the Best Travel Companies to Work For (Video)
If you’re looking for a job with big travel bonuses, Fortune has a list of places to send your resumé.
According to Fortune’s list of “100 Best Companies,” Hilton skyrocketed to become the best company to work for in 2019.
Last year, the company was only ranked 33rd on the list. The hotel company (which also includes Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, and Embassy Suites, among others) recently underwent sweeping changes regarding employee culture.
“We forgot that we are a business of people serving people, and the corporate environment got very disconnected from the front line,” Hilton CEO Chris Nassetta told Fortune.
According to Great Place to Work, 96 percent of Hilton employees say the company is a great place to work. Top favorite attributes include opportunities to travel, a “family” feel, and company benefits. According to Glassdoor, one of the best company perks is “being able to book rooms at any Hilton Worldwide property on staff rates.”
Also included in the top 10 best companies was Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. Coming in at No. 5 on the list, employees of the boutique hotel and restaurant company praised its “thoughtful” culture. Those who go above and beyond the call of duty can redeem their good deeds for rewards like Apple Watches, spa gift certificates, or days off.
Although Mariott came in 31st on the overall list, on Fortune’s list of best large companies, the hotel chain placed second. Hyatt Hotels came in the rankings at 32nd. Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts ranked 89th on the list.
Transportation based-companies appeared less frequently on the list than hospitality. The highest people-moving company on the list was Delta Air Lines, ranking at No. 97.
