HolidayPirates Group receives Gold PRIDE Index champion seal for commitment to diversity and inclusion

Wednesday 6 December 2023

We are pleased to announce that the HolidayPirates Group has been listed in the 2023 Pride Index, The LGBTIQ+ Diversity Performance Index, run by the UHLALA Group.

The UHLALA Group is the leading LGBTIQ+ social business in Germany and since 2021 it has published the annual index, which provides an overview of the LGBTIQ+ diversity commitment of participating companies and identifies those that are true diversity champions.

The HolidayPirates Group scored 84% in the PRIDE Index and was therefore awarded the highest accolade - the Gold PRIDE Champion employer seal. The overall score reflects the company’s performance based on 75 comprehensive questions in the categories of organisational structure, HR, communication and visibility, as well as legal frameworks and regulations.

Vivien Schwarz-Elbelazi, Head of People & Culture at HolidayPirates Group, said: “We are extremely proud to have been listed in the PRIDE Index 2023, which clearly demonstrates our commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We have always strived to provide a safe and open work environment, and it is amazing to see these efforts recognised externally.”

In 2023 the HolidayPirates Group promoted a number of diversity and inclusion initiatives, including the Rainbow Project, which aims to celebrate destinations with a rich LGBTIQ+ history and culture. The project saw a number of employees visit these destinations and share their experiences through reels, videos and interviews.
