Commenting on the award, Christopher Rawstron said, “Being a global hospitality business, IHG has one of the UK's most diverse workforces and this is something we are very proud of. While it is our policy to get the right person for the job, disabled people are typically committed and loyal to their jobs, so we are very pleased to have them on board.”
