Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. may be based out of McLean, but with more than 4,000 hotels in 94 countries worldwide, it’s planning to add another 500 employees who wouldn’t even need to leave their homes to come to work.
The global hospitality giant published a news release earlier this week announcing it plans to hire 500 full- and part-time work-from-home employees for positions in its reservations and customer support divisions. The positions are reportedly designed for stay-at-home parents, retirees, college students and military spouses in need of “portable careers.”
“We are committed to creating opportunities for meaningful employment and our work-from-home customer engagement model provides our team members with the freedom to enjoy a better work/life balance,” Mike Gathright, senior vice president of reservations and customer care, noted in the release.
The company also announced it would like to hire 10,000 military veterans by 2018, and these new work-from-home positions may contribute to reaching that goal.
“As Hilton Worldwide expands across the globe, our need for talented, passionate travel counselors grows,” Gathright said in the release. “This unique, virtual opportunity is a perfect fit for our hotels, our guests and our team members.”
