Inclusion and Diversity

HolidayPirates welcomes people from all walks of life. To that end, we are taking steps to ensure that the platform and workplace is set up to facilitate a culture of inclusion and diversity for all. Our ultimate purpose is to unlock people’s desire to explore the world, and along the way we want to make sure all our community members feel empowered to do so, regardless of personal attributes such as gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, physical ability and age. This commitment is reflected in our HR policy and communications.

What diversity means to us

We see diversity as a powerful piece of the organisational puzzle. Diversity is all about how we respect and appreciate the differences between people. More diversity means more ideas, perspectives and strengths upon which to draw. We’re striving to create an environment that nurtures this sense of diversity and grants access to the many benefits it brings.

Our definition of inclusivity

Inclusivity is the process by which we empower the pirate community to feel comfortable being themselves. We invite people to work with us, or use our platform, safe in the knowledge that they can voice different ideas, opinions and viewpoints in an environment where mutual respect is the driving force.

Language

Language is a powerful mechanism that informs not only the way we think, but also how we behave and experience the world. HolidayPirates promotes the use of inclusive language to help build a community where employees, partners and users feel they have the respect and recognition they deserve. We strive to be mindful of the language we use so we can foster a modern and welcoming culture of inclusion for the betterment of both the company and the individuals who associate with it.

Talk like a pirate!

We’re partial to some classic pirate slang. However we understand language is a powerful mechanism that informs not only the way we think, but also how we behave and experience the world. HolidayPirates promotes the use of inclusive language to help build a community where employees, partners and users feel they have the respect and recognition they deserve. We strive to be mindful of the language we use so we can foster a modern and welcoming culture of inclusion for the betterment of both the company and the individuals who associate with it.

Sustainability

HolidayPirates is one of the leading and most valued travel companies on social media and direct messaging. Our purpose is to unlock people's’ desire to travel and explore the world by showing them the best selection of inspiring content and travel deals on a daily basis. We want to make the world accessible to everybody, regardless of their personal circumstances.

We believe that traveling has become a basic need to the majority and an important component of everyone’s mental well-being. While it contributes to intercultural understanding, resolves prejudices, as well as educates and creates some of the most beautiful moments in people’s lives, we understand that it is also part of the problem humanity is facing with regards to environmental protection.

Appreciating that people’s desire to travel will not change widely though, the only way to tackle this challenge is to make traveling more and more eco friendly and carbon neutral as soon as possible. HolidayPirates is determined to contribute in an immediate reduction and soon neutrality of the carbon footprint its business has. Furthermore, HolidayPirates will support and contribute to different initiatives around the world having an environmental and humanitarian impact, as well as securing animal welfare.
