The award was given by Myanmar Employer Awards and Mercer, one of the world’s largest HR consulting firms.
The award category is based on the “Thrive45” questionnaire by Mercer. It comprises 45 questions that help measure and identify which aspects of Hilton’s culture and work environment are helping its employees to thrive.
“We are so honoured to receive this award. Every day we strive to foster a workplace culture that meet our employees’ health, well-being and professional development needs.
“As Hilton approaches its 100th year next year, we celebrate what drives our success, and that is our people and the incredible culture that we have built together,” said Veronique Sirault, new Cluster General Manager, Hilton in Myanmar.
The company said 2018 was another banner year for Hilton in Myanmar, as it won multiple accolades. Hilton Nay Pyi Taw won the first Asean MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) Awards as well as Amcham CSR Excellence Awards for three consecutive years for its pioneering capacity-building initiative, Hilton Vocational Training Center (HVTC). One of the HVTC graduates, Thae Thae Zaw, also took home a gold medal from the 2018 Myanmar Culinary Arts Competition.
This is the second year that Hilton has been awarded for talent management and development. Last year, Hilton received three Bronze Awards at the Myanmar Employer Awards International categories of Excellence in Workplace Environment, Rewards and Recognition, and Best Career Advancement. It was also shortlisted for Overall Best of the Best.
Hilton has been operating in Myanmar since October 2014.
