The Hilton Hotel Group has introduced great help for their employees, the ‘ GED Assistance Program’.
This program offers thousands of the company’s workers the chance to acquire their HSE (high school equivalency) diploma. This GED Assistance Program is actually the most comprehensive HSE Program ever developed by a hospitality company in America.
The program is open to all full-time US employees of hotels owned or managed by the Hilton group (including office workers) who have worked at the company for no less than six months. The program is totally free and provides test preparation support and one-on-one tutoring, and the tab of the GED® exam (four independent tests that need to be completed within 2 years), or the HiSET or TASC, will also be picked up by Hilton. In 2016, the GED passing score was reduced. Find out more here.
Hilton feels that the company’s employees (or Team Members, as they are referred to) are invaluable for its success and the company is committed to making sure that it is and will remain a great employer that not only helps its employees develop professionally, but also to grow personally. Learning for and earning a GED -HiSET-TASC credential or high school diploma is really a great accomplishment in the lives of people, and this fantastic GED Assistance Program will definitely be beneficial to a lot of Hilton workers.

The program is developed by Hilton in cooperation with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), a leading US non-profit organization that strives to reduce barriers to education and learning opportunities for those who need it most. The organization was thrilled to work with Hilton to develop this supportive GED program, and they feel that effectively advising adult learners on their options plays a key role in helping these people overcome various obstacles towards pursuing their educational objectives. CAEL’s professionals are highly motivated to support the hotel group’s employees in their efforts to earn a credential that is nationally recognized and accepted just like a standard high school diploma.
Hilton is expecting that some 5,000 employees will benefit from the new GED Assistance program which is just one of benefit incentives that are provided by the hotel group. Through the years, Hilton has introduced many more benefits to indicate that Hilton Worldwide is a great employer and that the group’s hotels are great places to work. Hilton Worldwide is a major global hospitality enterprise and it offers a variety of lodging possibilities, from full-service luxury resorts and hotels to extended-stay hotels.
