We value difference at Whitbread Inns
Everyone deserves a local pub on their doorstep where they feel completely relaxed and can just be themselves. At Whitbread Inns, everybody is made to feel welcome when they visit. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
This also goes far beyond the guests we cater for, it’s at the core of our business. We believe that embracing difference is not only the right thing, it’s the smart thing. Diversity in people creates diversity of thought, and diversity of thought leads to new ways of thinking and doing.
So we aren’t just accepting of difference, we value it and we welcome it with open arms.
We’re committed to supporting all our colleagues, including those from under-represented groups such as those who are ethnically diverse, identify as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, trans, non-binary or use another term, and people with disabilities. Whilst we have made significant progress in the last 12 months, we recognise we have more to do, to be both more diverse and more inclusive – and we won’t rest easy until we achieve these.
In 2020 we made eight commitments to change:
We also signed the Prince’s responsible business network Business In The Community’s ‘Race at Work Charter’ and are working to implement its five calls to action to tackle barriers that ethnic minority people can face.
Gender equality continues to be an area of commitment. View our latest Gender Pay Gap report.
We’re committed to doing more, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you as we continue on this journey.
