The companies included in "Gabala Hospitality Group" signed the "Women's Empowerment Principles" of the UN

One of the largest players in the tourism and hospitality industry of the country - the companies included in the "Gabala Hospitality Group" took a new step within the group's corporate social responsibility program and signed the "Women's Empowerment Principles (WEP)", a global initiative. These principles serve as a guide for private sector enterprises to promote gender equality and women's empowerment in the workplace, labor market and society. The initiative was launched in 2010 by the UN Global Compact and UN Women. In Azerbaijan, these principles are promoted among private companies within the framework of the UN Development Program's "Increasing Economic Empowerment of Women in the South Caucasus" project.

Shabnam Farman, Chief Executive Officer of Gabala Hospitality Group, who participated in the meeting of the companies that signed the WEP principles, expressed her opinion about this significant event and noted that "Today, with great pride, we announce to the public that we are a member of this global movement. For us, one of the most important priorities in business activity is sustainability and sustainable development. All activities in the companies included in our group are based on an equal approach and compliance with labor legislation. I think that the principles that are part of this global initiative will give further impetus to our inclusive approaches. Being one of the first 31 companies and the first company from the hospitality sector to sign the WEP principles in Azerbaijan gives us a special feeling of joy. I believe that in the near future all our partners and other companies operating in our sector will join this project."

Strong employees occupy the main place in the philosophy of the companies included in the "Gabala Hospitality Group".

All companies included in this group promise equal work opportunities and pay special attention to the development of their employees. It is no coincidence that female employees are represented at the highest level in the Group's Management Board and play an important role in decision-making processes.
