At Hilton, our people and business are guided by our vision - to fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality.
These powerful words, first articulated by our founder Conrad Hilton in 1954, are just as relevant and inspirational today. They are based on the belief that we can use our passion for hospitality to make a lasting, positive difference in people’s lives and the wider world.
Our values serve as a compass for how we deliver our Hilton hospitality to the world. They define our responsibilities to our people, the guests we serve, the owners we grow our business with and the communities we call home.
Travel with Purpose has played an important role in bringing our vision and values to life by uniting our organization around a set of global issues that connect our business to society - youth opportunity, environmental stewardship and community resiliency. It provides a framework for global goals and solutions while supporting our teams to achieve local impact.
