Directly linked to our mission to make it easier for everyone to experience the world, diversity and inclusion have been a core part of our company culture since day one.
We’re committed to fostering a more inclusive booking experience for the millions of travellers around the world who use our platform every day. This ongoing journey starts with our very own employees, who represent over 140 nationalities and a wide range of ethnic and social backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations.
Creating a workplace where everyone can truly be themself and feel valued is a continuous process. One that’s never done as it evolves over time, but is highly rewarding and vitally crucial to our company culture.
Driven by our employees with the support of the Booking.com Inclusion, Diversity and Belonging team, our Communities are a moving force in creating the most open, welcoming and empowering work environment possible. Backed by members and allies, our Communities do not only foster inclusion, but drive our business goals and product evolution as well.
Our B.Able community empowers colleagues with diverse physical and neurological needs to truly be understood and thrive in a safe environment that feels comfortable and fair to everyone.
Our B.Bold community is a growing collective of black employees and their allies, who are on a mission to support, retain and grow black employees into future leaders at Booking.com.
B.Equal aims to make Booking.com the world’s number one workplace for women and non-binary people, at every stage in life and their career. They ensure women+ have equal access to opportunities, while removing barriers to stand in the way of our wellbeing.
B.Proud, our largest global employee community, is committed to create a supportive and inclusive workplace for LGBT+ employees. This collective not only leads the celebration of Pride days around the world, but also helps us optimise our programs and policies, so we can remain to be a workplace that works for everyone.
We’re beyond proud to be highly ranked in the Financial Times’ list of Diversity Leaders in Europe, for the second consecutive year! Booking.com was listed as the #1 diversity leader in the 2020 rankings, and is now recognised as the #3 leader in the 2021 rankings, claiming a top 5 spot for the second year in a row – a tremendous honour and achievement of the collaborative efforts of our Booking.com Communities.
Creating a workplace where everyone feels welcome and able to do their best work is no easy job. It’s one that evolves over time and will never officially be ‘done’. But that’s ok, because it’s both highly rewarding and vitally important. Why? Well, to tell us more, we asked someone who knows all about it: Booking.com’s Global Head of Inclusion, Diversity and Belonging (IDB), Chuck Stephens.
