Our business has an open outlook

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our leadership and talent and putting the right decision-making processes around actions, so all colleagues feel included, valued and respected. 

As part of our Journey to Tomorrow commitments we aim to drive change that cultivates an inclusive environment and we will work to champion a diverse culture where everyone can thrive and below you’ll find some examples of how we are doing this.


We join recognition with a rewarding experience

Working for us means more than competitive pay and benefits. You can also expect recognition for your hard work, a healthy working environment and the right work-life balance.


All our colleagues are offered paid annual leave and public holidays in line with their local market

Some roles are eligible for incentives such as bonus which rewards you for your own and company performance

In most markets we offer access to insurance such as private healthcare

Colleague Restaurant Facilities

On site subsidised restaurant facilities in certain locations.


You and your family have access to our global Employee Assistance Program which offers financial, lifestyle and wellbeing advice


All colleagues should feel included, valued and respected – not just because it’s the right thing to do, or the best way to behave – but because people are the best version of themselves when they feel these things. We celebrate intersectionality and give our multiple underrepresented communities a global platform to shine and bring their whole self to work. 



We at IHG, believe it is important to have a diverse, equal and inclusive group of leaders, and we’ve had clear targets in place to ensure we keep progressing.
