Our Philosophy

What are our Winning Ways?

IHG’s Winning Ways are how we behave every day – a set of behaviours based on our values that are helping us to become one of the very best companies in the world. They reflect the values that are important to us and were developed through research with our employees across the world into how they behave at work every day – and how they want the people they work with to behave.

Our Winning Ways provide a strong sense of shared purpose, and are critical to driving our business performance forward, as well as making us a great, enjoyable place to work. They make us a high-performing organisation that helps deliver our company’s core purpose – ‘Great Hotels Guests Love’. The heart of our company has always been our people. It is our people who bring our brands to life for our guests.
