Hilton and Carnival named among Australia’s best workplaces

Hilton has been recognised by the Great Place to Work Institute as one of Australia’s best large companies to work for, while Carnival snagged a spot in the medium-sized list.

Hilton placed fifth on the top 50 list for companies with over 1,000 employees. This marks the fourth time that Hilton has been named at the top of this list.

This accolade builds on Great Place to Work certifications awarded in New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea.

Paul Hutton, area vice president and head of Australasia, Hilton, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been once again recognised by the Great Place to Work Institute as the leading hospitality company to work for in Australia.

“This recognition is an incredible testament to our industry-leading practices and purpose-led culture that provides our team members with great workplace environments, diverse career opportunities and rewarding benefits.”

Mary Hogg, regional director, human resources, Australasia, Hilton, added: “This accolade is an attribute to all of our dedicated team members who are the foundation of what we do; who work tirelessly and passionately to provide our guests with memorable and heartfelt experiences, and for that, we are committed to creating the best and most inclusive home at Hilton – a welcoming environment that fosters inclusion, wellness and growth and inspires our team members to bring their best selves to work every single day.”

Carnival managed to snag 18th on the list of the best medium-sized companies to work at.

“We are naturally proud that Carnival Australia has received this accolade because we work hard to build a workplace where people are respected and their talents are nurtured,” president of Carnival Australia and P&O Cruises Australia, Marguerite Fitzgerald, said.

“However, this honour belongs to our people for their commitment and fortitude during a very challenging period and now with their enthusiasm for rebuilding as our cruise lines and ships return to service.

“Not only did Carnival Australia come through the two-year pause in cruising recognised as one of the best places to work but also the trend continues as it helps rebuild the cruising industry and charts its own course for 2023 and beyond.”

94 per cent of Carnival Australia employees said their workplace was a great place to work, a similar score to last year.

“Such a strong response from our people inspires us as an organisation to maintain the positive momentum based on values that our people clearly share,” Fitzgerald said.
