We listen to our teams and believe change comes from within. We have employee networks that create inclusive spaces to celebrate communities and create great connections, encouraging everyone to feel Whitbread is a place where they’re included. Regional Operation Manager Matt Case has seen GLOW, our LGBTQ+ network, become a vital part of our commitment to truly becoming an inclusive employer. Matt joined Premier Inn in 2017 and now helps lead the network. He said: “Creating an environment of inclusion must take on two forms; the ability for our LGBTQ+ community to have the space and network to be authentic and feel safe in the workplace, alongside the explicit inclusion from others through policy, role models and listening forums. “There will always be work to do, but I’m proud to know we’re able to make these steps by being listened to, supported and seeing the change. “We want our teams to feel they belong and the work that GLOW does demonstrate inclusion is part of how we do business and not just a ‘nice to have'."
