Whitbread's Sustainability Report 2016/17

Teams and Communities

As one of one the UK’s largest employers with over 50,000 team members, we are passionate about recruiting and retaining great people and we are committed to creating opportunities for everyone to build their skills and develop their careers with us. We also recognise that we can make a huge difference in our local communities, so we are proud to say that our ever-growing work force make a positive impact by supporting communities in lots of different ways.

We work with widely with the government and industry to influence continued investment in nurturing skills and developing careers within the hospitality sector. We collaborate with many of our partners across the industry to boost careers, break down barriers for young people, and provide opportunities for people with no employment, education or training.

These same people also work incredibly hard to support local communities by activities such as volunteering and visiting local schools, and raise money for our Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants chosen Charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, our own charity, Costa Foundation, as well as other charities they personally support.

We have surpassed our target of raising £7.5 million for the Premier Inn Clinical Building at Great Ormond Street Hospital
