DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
At TUI, we know people are as diverse as the destinations we send our customers to. Just as travel is about exploration, we are on a continuous journey to make our work culture more inclusive. Spending time with us, whether you are at work or on holiday, enables you to relax and be yourself in a safe environment. We love to see your uniqueness shine through and inspire the future of travel. Creating an inclusive culture is both challenging and fun – it requires us to step out of our comfort zones, but that’s when we grow personally and in our teams. A sense of togetherness and belonging drives our team culture.
Diversity highlights from across TUI Group
Within the TUI Group, we follow the approach of “freedom within a framework”. Thus within a global diversity framework, our business units adapt the suggested measures to their regional and national contexts. Some of the highlights include:
- “newWork@TUI” strategy offers various flexible work arrangements
- Group-wide “Spotlight” initiative to foster women in leadership (since 2016)
- Special needs’ travel service that caters for travellers with disabilities and employs colleagues who personally understand these requirements
- Unconscious bias training
- Our recruiting teams in the UK are piloting unbiased job adverts and in TUI Destination Experiences, they use anonymized applications
- Running a #MeToo campaign and introducing Unisex toilets in the Nordics
The TUI Group is committed to providing as many people as possible with accessible holidays. Handicapped individuals have to plan their holidays far more meticulously than regular holidaymakers. TUI has developed an “Accessibility Roadmap“ with the German NatKo – Tourism for All Association and analysed the strengths and potential for development of its own accessible tourism portfolio.
We teamed up with Marianne Stjernvall, new CRO Lead at TUI in the Nordics to learn about what CRO is and how it can help converting your website visitors into customers. Marianne also spoke about why she thinks that the tech scene is perfect for women to take the leading roles.
In the framework of the Digital Life Design (DLD) 2019 Conference held in Munich, the “Inspiring Fifty” initiative presented the winners of the first Inspiring Fifty DACH Awards. The role models receiving an award include Elke Reichart, Chief Digital Officer at TUI Group since February 2018.
