Social Impact

We are committed to doubling our investment in social impact in our operations, our communities and our supply chain by 2030.

At Hilton, we hire local, buy local and invest local. For nearly 100 years, we have been a local business operating at a global scale, investing to ensure sustainable and inclusive growth for all. The success of our business is directly linked to the success of our communities – from the local owners who build our hotels, to the local talent who operate them, to the local businesses we support through the products we source and the guests we serve. We are focused on creating economic opportunities, spurring local investment, respecting human rights and providing disaster relief.


We are committed to opening doors for 1 million young people by 2019.


Careers@Hilton, our annual career awareness celebration, has engaged more than 475,000 young people through job fairs, career guidance talks and job shadowing events hosted by our hotels.
