How can IHG create an inclusive and inspiring culture for all people to flourish - no matter their background?

At IHG Hotels & Resorts, our purpose is to deliver True Hospitality for Good. 

To achieve this, we work together to care for our people, communities and planet.  

Guided by our respectful and responsible culture, we unveiled a 10-year action plan in 2021 - we call this Journey to Tomorrow. 

Our commitments are ambitious but targeted, reflecting our purpose of True Hospitality for Good, they ensure commitment to making measurable, positive, changes.  

It includes specific diversity, equity and inclusion targets to: 

  • Drive gender balance and a doubling of under-represented groups across our leadership.
  • Cultivate a culture of inclusion for our colleagues, owners and suppliers.
  • Support our colleagues in prioritising their own wellbeing and that of others.
  • Drive respect for and advance human rights.

We are committed to creating an inclusive and inspiring culture for all our people to thrive in – no matter what their background.  

Are you ready for the challenge?

Create a plan that can be used to make our hotels even more inclusive.
