Dave Thomas Foundation Names Hilton Grand Vacations On Its US’ Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces List

Hilton Grand Vacations (HGV) has just announced that it has been in the top 100 companies on the Dave Thomas Foundation’s “Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces” list for the second consecutive year. This list recognizes organizations who work to create a supportive adoption environment for their employees.

HGV ranked 45 in the top 100 companies and ranked 1 in the hotel and travel industry for the “Best By Industry” list.

Pablo Brizi, HGV Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer & Corporate Affairs, was excited to discuss this recognition:

“What a privilege to be recognized once again by the Dave Thomas Foundation for our adoption assistance benefit being one of the best in the country. At HGV, our mission is to put people first, and by offering industry-leading benefits, such as adoption assistance and a comprehensive parental leave program, reflects our company’s family-first culture. I’m extremely proud of HGV’s continued commitment to support adoptive parents and their families.”

To help offset the cost of adoption, Hilton Grand Vacations provides its corporate, hourly, and resort-based team members adoption assistance benefits up to $10,000 per child. The company also offers all eligible US team members who have been with the company 90 days 12 weeks of paid parental leave. Its parental leave policy applies to birth parents, adoptive parents, and parents who have a child via surrogacy.

Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption President and CEO Rita Soronen added:

“Hilton Grand Vacations is consistently ranked amongst the best of the best in our annual Best Adoption-Friendly Workplace Survey. Their benefits take into consideration the cost of all adoption strategies as well as the time needed to bond with an adopted child. Thank you to Hilton Grand Vacations for putting families first. And congratulations on being ranked 45th in our 2021 Top 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces and number one in the hotel and travel industry.”

2021 marks the 15th annual survey conducted by the Dave Thomas Foundation. In partnership with RTI International, an independent nonprofit research institute, organizations were selected for the “Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces” based on items like paid leave, financial reimbursement, and the percentage of employees eligible for those benefits
