Code of conduct

Foreword from Alison Brittain

Our reputation is fundamental to our long term success. It gives our customers, our people, our partners and suppliers, our investors, and the communities that we serve, the trust to do business with us. Trust is hard to win, but easy to lose.

Our Code of Conduct gives us a clear framework to help us make the right decisions. It spells out the standards we set for ourselves and explains how we can achieve them.

Whitbread Plc is one of the UK’s oldest and most successful businesses, with a reputation for being a great place to work and a force for good in the communities where we operate. Everyone that works here has a part to play in upholding and protecting this reputation.
