Diversity is at the core of our Vision, Mission, and Values throughout our value chain, from team members and suppliers to the community and our guests.

Let’s take a deeper look at the benefits of Diversity & Inclusion in the Hospitality industry
Diversity and inclusion isn’t just ethical and moral exercise. The powerful benefits that diversity brings the sector, include:
Diversity creates a workforce full of different skills, talents, and customs. This enables us to create a multi-functional team of outstanding employees who can supercharge company performance. Even better, when you attract a diverse range of talent and ages, you make the workplace more interesting, engaging, and fun to be in – increasing employee engagement and retention.
A workforce brimming with diverse cultures, insights, and experiences is a workforce generating new ideas, different thinking, and innovative solutions. Accessing this untapped workforce gives you a competitive advantage as well as a better understanding of your customers.
According to CIPHR, diverse teams perform better and faster – making decisions 60% quicker and fueling productivity. And we can all do with extra time in our business.
Businesses embracing diversity and inclusion gain immediate access to a larger pool of talent, which makes recruiting easier and quicker. Plus, with candidates increasingly attracted to companies whose values mirror their own, inclusive employers are winning top talent without entering into salary wars.
Women faced many challenges through the years. Gender is at the heart of our strategy for achieving equity in our policies and practices, our employee experience, talent recruitment and selection, and representation and retention. We’re taking the initiative by proceeding our efforts on women in leadership, equal pay and the gender pay gap.
