The Group was recognised for its policies on female leadership and talent portfolio, equal pay and gender parity and policies against sexual harassment

NH Hotel Group has been included in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index 2021 (GEI Gender-Equity Index) for its commitment and contribution to gender equality through policies that help to make visible and improve the presence of women in the company. Included for the second consecutive year, the Group made its debut in the 2020 index.

The GEI’s objective is to analyse the performance of companies committed to gender equality in the workplace. Specifically, it analyses the measures that each company has developed in five basic pillars: female leadership and talent portfolio, equal pay and gender parity, inclusive culture, policies against sexual harassment and the pro-woman brand. The 2021 index includes 380 companies from 44 countries and regions belonging to eleven different sectors, such as tourism, automotive and banking. NH Hotel Group has been included for obtaining a score equal to or higher than the global threshold established by Bloomberg, which reflects its high level of commitment and performance in the five pillars. The chain has obtained its best results in the pillars of female leadership and talent portfolio, equal pay and gender parity, and policies against sexual harassment. Commenting on the recognition, Ramón Aragonés, CEO of NH Hotel Group said: “In recent years we have made great strides in the area of ​​diversity and gender equality. We are extremely proud to be part of the Bloomberg GEI Index for the second year in a row. It is our commitment to our employees that drives us to continue working both on equitable treatment and equal opportunities and on giving visibility to female talent. “

NH Hotel Group: diversity and inclusion at all levels

NH Hotel Group believes that diversity is a key factor in creating a network of diverse talents capable of understanding customer needs, innovating and reflecting society in the business world in the 3.0 era. Therefore, a fundamental pillar of the company’s corporate culture is also based on diversity, equality and inclusion.Currently, the nearly 13,000 employees of the Company are of 133 different nationalities. Of these, 22% work in countries other than their country of origin. Furthermore, 51% of the total workforce are women, who occupy 44% of the total managerial positions. In terms of age, in 2020, the percentage of employees between the ages of 25 and 40 stood at 44%.

All these advances have made NH Hotel Group a benchmark in the sector in terms of diversity, not only with respect to gender but also other diverse groups. This is demonstrated not only in the recognition by Bloomberg GEI in the past two years but also the inclusion of the Company in the EQUILEAP 2019 Ranking, positioning it as a leading company in Spain in defence of gender equality and in the Top 100 worldwide (position 48). In this way, the company continues to prioritise the continuation of a long-term project of real management of the diversity of employees in all its aspects and to support their professional development within the Group.
