People are our business
Recruiting, engaging and retaining staff with the right On the Beach DNA is critical to us and we have exciting plans to continue this investment and develop our fantastic working environment to further support our values and vision to be Europe’s leading online retailer of beach holidays.
But it doesn't stop there. We're proud to have a fantastic team culture too. To encourage this our teams get state of the art technology to work with, a subsidised canteen, a casual dress code, a chill out area, as well as golf, bowls and badminton on site. We also offer staff research and development time to develop innovative ideas with their colleagues and help be part of a flourishing business.
We support and provide an environment in which our employees can flourish. We celebrate when things have gone right and if things don’t go quite to plan we all rally around each other. Above all we work together as a team.
On the Beach employees have the option to join an affordable healthcare cash plan offering a wide variety of benefits including dental, dental accident, optical, hospital benefits, physiotherapy, chiropody, prescription benefits, health and wellbeing and much more.
On the Beach actively encourages all employees to support and give back to their local community and we have supported many charitable causes over the past few years including: Just a Drop 24 Hour Badminton Challenge and sponsorship of a local girls football team plus adhoc charity and sporting events – as chosen by our employees.
On the Beach is committed to an equal opportunities policy. We aim to ensure that no employee is discriminated against, directly or indirectly, on the grounds of colour, race, ethnic or national origins, sexual orientation or gender, marital status, disability, religion or belief, being part time or on the grounds of age or frankly anything else, and we recruit on this basis. Across our business of approximately 300 employees, female employees represent approximately 56%; we have one female executive who sits on the main board and we have two females who are members of our Group executive team. As of 31 August 2015, 49% of managers within the business were women.
Anti-corruption and bribery
Employees at On the Beach do not actively seek gifts or favours from any of our suppliers, or from other persons or organisations with whom we associate. We take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption and are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate, and implement and enforce effective systems to counter bribery.
