Tuesday, October 27, 2020
Hilton Grand Vacations is excited to announce that they have ranked among the top 100 companies on the Dave Thomas Foundation’s “Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces” list. This list highlights organizations that work to make adoption a supported option for all working parents. Hilton Grand Vacations has been on this list before, and this year jumped from 47th to 31st out of the top 100 companies. Additionally, Hilton Grand Vacations was named first place in the hotel and travel industry on the Foundation’s “Best by Industry” list.
Pablo Brizi, EVP and chief human resources officer at Hilton Grand Vacations, commented:
“I’m extremely proud of HGV’s continued commitment to support adoptive parents and their families. This a great reflection of the family-first culture that we strive to build at HGV. Our adoption assistance benefit and comprehensive parental leave program empowers our team members to pursue their personal dreams. Our mission is always to put people first, and we believe that by offering industry-leading benefits, such as adoption assistance, we are able to attract, develop and engage top talent.”
Hilton Grand Vacations provides corporate, hourly, and resort-based team members with an adoption assistance benefit of up to $10,000 per child to help offset the high cost of adoption. Additionally, Hilton Grand Vacations offers 12 weeks of paid parental leave for all eligible US team members that have been working for the company for at least 90 days. The parental leave program is for both birth and adoptive parents, as well as employees that have had a child through a surrogate.
“Thank you to Hilton Grand Vacations for providing adoption benefits to its team members and for sharing our belief that every child deserves a permanent, loving family,” said Rita Soronen, president and CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, a national nonprofit public charity dedicated to finding forever families for the more than 120,000 children waiting to be adopted from foster care in the U.S. “Supporting team members who step forward to foster or adopt, is not only good for business, but is simply the right thing to do.”
The Dave Thomas Foundation partnered with RTI International to conduct their 14th annual survey this year. Companies that were chosen for the “Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces” list were based on adoption benefits including paid leave and/or financial reimbursement, the amount of financial reimbursement or assistance allowed by an organization’s policy, and the number of weeks of paid leave an organization offers for adoption.
