Our Recent Research
Within the toolkit there is a range of helpful materials, including tips on how to establish your group, industry case studies to share best practice, and strategies for engaging with senior leadership.
We hope that this new ENG toolkit will empower organisations and individuals to create meaningful connections, foster a sense of community, and drive positive change within our sector.
The toolkit has been created in collaboration with Members of the WiHTL and Diversity in Retail’s Race & Ethnicity Committee and includes topics such as being an authentic and active ally, understanding and unlearning biases, calling out non-inclusive behaviour and how to navigate conversations about race.
The next phases of the toolkit will offer support and guidance for line managers, leaders, employee network groups as well as Human Resources and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion professionals.
We are delighted to launch our first-ever Employee Voice Report based on the results of a survey we conducted in October 2022. The Report highlights insightful findings in what diversity, equity and inclusion really means to people from every function and level working across the sector and provides fascinating and wide-reaching insights into how represented employees feel in their organisations, whether they have a full sense of belonging while at work, and how important an organisation's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is to them personally.
The report demonstrates how progress, albeit slowly, is being made on closing the gender pay gap and how organisations are addressing the challenges to achieving parity. With statistics drawn from a full sector overview, we also take a deeper dive into how the WiHTL Collaboration Community is taking action to ensure that the pay gap remains at the forefront of DE&I strategy with case studies from Carnival UK (P&O Cruises & Cunard), Compass Group UK & Ireland and ODEON Cinemas Group.
Now in its fourth year, this edition of the index is again in partnership with The MBS Group and features Women To Watch & Role Models for Inclusion in the Hospitality travel and leisure sector.
The report marks five years of partnership between WiHTL and The MBS Group, and provides an in-depth analysis of diversity across the sectors. Drawing on data captured from 200 businesses across the industry and conversations with Chairs, CEOs and HRDs.
To support companies collect, analyse and act on their ethnicity pay gap data, we've produced a guide on Ethnicity Pay Gap reporting. This guide includes insights from our members, case studies and different approaches to reviewing pay disparities.
In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week, we are delighted to launch a new and unique piece of research produced in partnership with the NHS approved mental health app Thrive.
