More than 100 leading businesses from across hospitality have united in their commitment to supporting the development of their workforce.
The Hospitality Wellbeing and Development Promise, driven by the Hospitality and Tourism Skills Board, which is part of the Hospitality Sector Council, was launched in April this year.
It has already garnered the support of 109 leading businesses, representing more than 10,000 venues. Signatories include Greene King, ODEON, Parkdean Resorts, Pizza Express and Sodexo.
Collectively, they have committed to:
Creating a working environment that facilitates respect between all team members.
Identifying training and development opportunities for team members at all levels.
Implementing a diversity and inclusion policy.
Ensuring team members are well-rewarded for their work, considering a wide range of pay and benefits, communicated through a clear pay policy.

The Hospitality Wellbeing and Development Promise sits alongside initiatives like the Hotelier’s Charter as part of the sector’s ongoing work to support its workforce.
All hospitality businesses are eligible to sign up to the Promise and demonstrate their commitment to the training, development and wellbeing of their staff.
