We embrace and support diversity

We believe it’s important to enable our employees to connect with fellow colleagues who have the same interests and passions. From Women, Latinos, LGBT-interest groups, to sustainability and volunteering, we support our employees’ passions and diversity around the world. Since the birth of Sonders and Beach, Diversity and Inclusion are two fundamental principles. Two principles on which we focus our activity every day in hopes on bringing our contribution to a better world. Well-being of people, in and out of our company, is for ourselves well-being enough to place diversity and inclusion among our main business goals. We strongly believe that work in a healthy work environment, where diversity is valued and inclusion are promoted, it is the basis of our success. An environment where everyone can feel good about themselves and with their own work is the starting point to constantly innovate and improve generating added value for the company itself.

Diversity & Inclusion Protocolo

In 2021, in collaboration with the Italian Association of LGBTQ+ Tourism (AITGL), we have launched the Diversity and Inclusion Protocol, the first Italian protocol dedicated to the enhancement of diversity and social inclusion in tourism in favor of international LGBTQ+ community. Validated by the international certification body RINA, the Protocol is able to enrich the commitment towards social and environmental sustainability and to help in wealth creation.

Inclusion, social, economic and environmental sustainability are important issues for us and for this reason we have decided to join and support certain organizations:
