The Deutsche Hospitality Code of Conduct supports all of us in behaving appropriately in day-to-day working situations. Therefore, it is important to observe country-specific regulations and legislation. The Code of Conduct is closely related to our Values as well as to our Company Mission Statement.

We are dedicated to creating a workplace that values and respects people from all over the world and enables our employees to put in their best. We foster diversity and embrace the unique combination of talents, experiences and perspectives of each employee, ensuring our success.

Business Ethics

We expect ourselves and our business partners to act ethically and in a manner consistent with the laid-down guiding principles. Our business decisions need to be based on Deutsche Hospitality’s best interests and shall always be consistent with other defined DH guidelines and policies.

Environmental Responsibility

As a responsible enterprise, we feel responsible for present and future generations and are committed to improving environment-friendly practices. Our global presence offers the opportunity to impel our business lines towards more environmentally sensitive solutions.

Bribery & Corruption

We are committed to operating with integrity. Bribery is not permitted under any circumstances. We must never offer, promise or give bribes in connection with business practices and we must never ask for or accept bribes. This applies globally even in countries where bribery is more common. It applies to government and public officials and also to bribery of individuals and entities in the private sector.

Interacting with Colleagues

We are committed to providing equal employment opportunity (EEO) to all applicants and employees without regard to race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, national origin, citizenship, physical or mental disability, genetic information (including but not limited to family medical history), veteran status, or any other protected classification under applicable law.

Confidentiality & Data Security

We handle huge amounts of personal data such as names, contact details and other information –from guests, colleagues, shareholders, owners and business partners. Global Data Privacy Laws (also known as Data Protection Laws) determine how we need to treat this data. Complying with these laws is an essential part of doing business responsibly. It is up to all of us to ensure that everyone we deal with trusts the way we handle his or her data.
