Hilton Grand Vacations a Best Adoption-Friendly Workplace


ORLANDO, FLA.—Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. announced it has once again ranked among the top 100 companies on Dave Thomas Foundation’s “Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces” list, which recognizes organizations that strive to build families through adoption. For the fourth consecutive year, HGV was named first in the hotel and travel industry on the Foundation’s “Best By Industry” list.

“What an honor to be recognized once again by the Dave Thomas Foundation for our industry-leading adoption assistance benefits,” said Pablo Brizi, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer & Corporate Affairs at Hilton Grand Vacations. “This is a great reflection of our ‘Putting People First’ mission and our family-focused culture. At HGV, team members are the heart of everything we do, and I’m extremely proud of HGV’s continued commitment to support adoptive parents and families.”

The company offers corporate, hourly, and resort-based team members an adoption assistance benefit of up to $10,000 per child to help offset the cost of adoption. HGV also provides 12 weeks of paid parental leave for all eligible U.S. team members who have been with the company for 90 days. The parental leave program applies to birth and adoptive mothers and fathers, as well as team members who have a child via surrogacy.

“The Foundation is thrilled to see a growing number of organizations offering robust benefits to employees who open their hearts and homes as foster and adoptive parents,” said Rita Soronen, President & CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “According to research conducted by The Harris Poll on the Foundation’s behalf, 68 percent of Americans say that having paid leave and other adoption benefits in the workplace impact their decision to adopt. When organizations offer benefits and join the Foundation in raising awareness of their importance to inspire others, we are one step closer to ensuring that every child has a permanent home and a loving family.”

The Dave Thomas Foundation partnered with RTI International, an independent, nonprofit research institute, to survey employers across the U.S. and score participants based on three criteria: financial reimbursement, paid leave and the percentage of employees eligible for those benefits. In addition to the 100 Best list, the Foundation ranks employers by size, industry, paid leave, foster care benefits and impact.
