Meliá Hotels Recognised as a Leader in Diversity

Meliá Hotels International, the leading hotel giant in Spain, has been named among the top companies in Europe for diversity by the Financial Times and Statista. As it continues on its journey of ESG projects, the company now boasts the title of one of the top ten Spanish companies for diversity.

In a special report on diversity in major companies across Europe, the Financial Times collaborated with Statista to analyse over 100,000 European workers, considering age, gender, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQW+ and overall diversity.

Results found Meliá Hotels International as one of the top ten companies for diversity in Spain. This recognition reflects Meliá Hotels International’s commitment to offering a work environment centred on equality and diversity over the recent years. In 2019, the company introduced a second Equality Plan to promote diversity in nine areas: access to the company, recruitment, promotion, training, remuneration, occupational health, gender violence, communication and work-life balance.

Meliá Hotels International also actively nurtures equality and remains committed to combatting harassment throughout the company with its training programs to promote a diverse, fair and safe work environment.

As a member of the ClosinGap since 2018, Meliá Hotels International joins a cluster of companies to close the gender gap in employment in the industry. Currently, 36.36 per cent of Meliá board members are women, with goals to reach 40 per cent by 2023.
