ORLANDO, FLA – Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. announce it was featured in Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces list for 2021, ranking at No. 12 among the top 100 companies recognized for employee happiness and satisfaction at work. HGV also ranks in the top three for hospitality companies and is the top-rated timeshare company. Produced in collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company, the Newsweek list results were determined after surveying more than 800,000 employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000.
“It is an incredible privilege to be recognized as a Most Loved Workplace by Newsweek and the Best Practice Institute,” said Mark Wang, president and CEO at Hilton Grand Vacations. “This honor reflects our commitment to putting people first, which means supporting them through the good and difficult times and treating them with the same graciousness and respect we do our owners and guests.”

Guided by the company’s overall mission of putting people first, HGV has fostered an internal culture of growth, empowerment, diversity and inspiration. The company also invests in its team members’ success through exceptional benefit programs, including educational assistance, flexible work hours, a parental leave program, and a Team Member and Family Travel Program designed to provide team members with a fulfilling work-life balance.
“We know that investing in programs that support our team members – both personally and professionally – has a huge impact on their overall satisfaction,” said Pablo Brizi, executive vice president, chief human resources officer & corporate affairs at Hilton Grand Vacations. “Our team members across the world feel engaged and enjoy coming to work each day because our mission and values are backed by meaningful actions that show how highly we value their personal happiness.”
To identify the top 100 companies for the Newsweek ranking, companies were evaluated and scored as follows: 35% of the initial score was based on employee survey responses; 25% was derived from analysis of external public ratings from sites such as Comparably, Careerbliss, Glassdoor, Indeed and Google; and 40% came from direct interviews with and written responses from company officials. Newsweek then conducted additional research into every company on the list, as well as the top runners up, to determine the final list of 100 companies and their ranking. The list includes both U.S. firms and companies with a strong U.S. presence that are based overseas.
“In the wake of the pandemic, business hit hurdles in terms of retaining and attracting employees – but the companies that made this list are delivering the respect, care, and appreciation that it takes to create a positive workplace that nurtures talent,” said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek.
