Supplementary notes

Figures are for people employed through all Whitbread's business segments.

* In 2018 Whitbread sold the Costa Coffee shop brand to the Coca-Cola Company. The figures for 2017/18 were therefore reinstated to reflect the number of employees in continuing operations, comparable with 2018/19.
The figure for 2016/17 still includes people employed through Costa as it was still fully owned by Whitbread during this period.
