Inclusion in our Family

We’re proud of everyone in our team and think that sharing and supporting what matters to you helps to break down the barriers that stop us from really belonging and connecting. We value the fact that each of us brings to the table a unique story and our diversity makes us stronger. Inclusivity and respect are at the heart of our business and are valued by teams, customers and suppliers. PizzaExpress and Milano is a place where everyone is welcome, and everyone belongs.

We are all responsible for maintaining an inclusive and respectful environment where everyone can be themselves. We commit to being inclusive in everything we do as a business. We understand and appreciate the strength that comes with diverse representation.

This gives us all a chance for our differences to be embraced and we carry this across all stages of our employee journey, from recruitment and selection to learning, career development and pay.

To pledge our commitment to diversity, we have joined several other hospitality companies and signed up to the Diversity in Hospitality, Travel and Leisure Charter.

PizzaExpress and Milano actively support Women in Hospitality, Travel & Leisure (WiHTL). We have unlocked barriers to progression by broadening our flexible working approach, in order to include everyone in the discussions and benefits relating to work-life balance.

We have signed the Race at Work Charter to pledge our commitment to: appoint an Executive Sponsor for race, capture ethnicity data and publicise progress, commit at board level to zero tolerance of harassment and bullying and make clear that equality in the workplace is the responsibility of everyone in our business.

PizzaExpress and Milano actively supports our LGBTQIA+ team members. We are committed to inclusivity for all and to having continuous conversations about the support our teams need. It’s important we listen to our team members and give them a platform to be seen and heard.

We want people to choose PizzaExpress and Milano because of our commitment to celebrating diversity. For us, diversity isn’t just about characteristics, it’s about all of us, and in order to be truly inclusive we need to be considerate of everyone’s experience and the fact that we all have a different story to tell.

PizzaExpress and Milano is a place where everyone is welcome and everyone belongs.
