About Expedia Group

We are the World’s Travel Platform

At Expedia Group our purpose is to bring the world within reach. We want to make travel more accessible, by using technology to break down those barriers.

We believe that success stems from an inclusive and diverse environment that fosters equality and opportunity. We see travel as a force for good. It connects us culturally, emotionally and physically and it changes how we see our place in the world. Our employees are encouraged to make a difference and through Expedia Cares, we can fight against inequality in all forms.

Flexible Working

At Expedia Group, we believe it’s important to find a work life balance. In a recent Town Hall Expedia Group CEO, Mark Okerstrom talked about how vital it is for our employees to find the balance between work and life outside of the office, he was even asked how he maintains a work life balance given his role, to which he replied, “Go hard, then go home”. We want to be the place where exceptional people who share our passion for tech and travel want to do their best work and having a flexible working approach will enable us to achieve that.

Parental Benefits

We wholeheartedly believe that having a child is an amazing gift and we want to support you through that journey. At Expedia Group we have a fantastic parental leave policy, including shared parental leave.

Diversity Groups

Our global diversity groups provide a means to connect, support, and celebrate us as a diverse workforce. Our Women at Expedia Learning & Leading (WELL) faction aims to empower and support women to leadership roles at Expedia Group, through professional development courses and networking events.

Diverse Hiring Initiatives

At Expedia Group we firmly believe that our candidates deserve to be treated equally and fairly regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, age or whether they have a disability. As part of our diverse hiring initiatives, we look to ensure that we have a gender balance in our interview panels as well as equal representation in our interview shortlists, where possible.

Cultivating a diverse and inclusive working environment strengthens Expedia Group and aligns with our strategic imperative to be the place where exceptional people who share our passion for tech and travel want to do their best work.

We are actively engaged in ensuring women at all levels of the organization have not just a seat at the table but, importantly, a strong voice in the future of our company.

- Mark Okerstrom, CEO of Expedia Group
