Travelodge and the Commission agree ways to help raise awareness of equality and diversity.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission and Travelodge have together identified ways to further promote diversity and equality awareness among Travelodge’s 10,000 employees.
The Company has more than 500 hotels in the UK. It was contacted by the Commission after an Employment Tribunal ruled against it in 2013 for breaching the Equality Act 2010.
Travelodge has taken steps, and is continuing to take steps, to ensure that such matters do not occur again. These include the rolling out of specific equality and diversity training throughout its organisation, and a programme of activities designed to celebrate and promote acceptance of a diverse workforce.
Travelodge and the Commission have signed a formal agreement and will work together over the next 12 months to review the success of the steps taken. Travelodge will also inform its employees of the work it is doing with the Commission under S23 of the Equality Act 2006 through its Equality & Diversity governance forum and internal communications channels.
