EQUALITY PROGRAM

The Artist – Grand Hotel of Art is committed to create an Equality Program, as per the Organic Law (Ley Orgánica) 3/2007, March 22nd, with the obligation to respect the equality of gender and job opportunities.

We promote equality in terms of salary and promotions and have implemented plans to guarantee the work-life balance. We have a program to prevent and intervene in case of harassment, to avoid any kind of discrimination, and we train our staff on this subject.

We have developed inclusive job policies. We are LGBTQ+ friendly, committed to their rights. This diversity is included in our business strategy, where we recognize trans people in our Equality Program, according to the Act of the Basque Government 234 / 2015.

We adhere to the behaviour Principles and Rules of the United Nations addressed to those companies who fight discrimination against LGBTQ+ people. We are committed to respect and ensure their rights, avoiding trips to countries where LGBTQ+ diversity is not secured.

Our Equality Program is not only a legal obligation, but also an effective strategy to attract clients and employees who appreciate an inclusive and respectful professional culture. By creating policies and practices that promote equality, we ensure a more positive work environment, ensuring collaboration, respect, and creativity.
