Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

97% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Each new starter has a departmental induction which involves spending time in the various departments to understand how their role fits with the team. We ran a "Wanted Programme" where the successful candidate was awarded with our management trainee placement. As a management trainee, the team member spends a few months within each department in the hotel to have a comprehensive understanding of the hotel operationally. They receive one to one coaching sessions with the Hotel Manager and also participate in our Management Development programme. They receive reviews in each of their departments in order to track the progress they have made. The hotel is also partnered with Purple Cubed who administer the appraisal process and also conduct training sessions within the hotel. The Talent Toolbox appraisal system enables the organisation to identify and place greater focus on development needs.

Senior managers truly live the values of this organisation

The Cavendish London is passionate about taking clear and meaningful steps towards reducing their impact on the environment. Through a little extra creativity, effort and compromise, a carbon neutral meeting package has been developed to ensure that business and environmental objectives can be achieved in tandem. Having won a Visit London Gold award and an Enjoy England Silver award for sustainable tourism, The Cavendish London has created a meeting package in conjunction with Carbon Clear to ensure that all their meeting packages are carbon neutral. The Cavendish London is also supporting Luara ceramic by purchasing in excess of 300 tonnes from Carbon Clear's Arrozal-Guarai Fuel Switch Project. This fuel switch project consists of six small-scale ceramic factories in Rio de Janeiro where each factory has been retrofitted to enable sustainable biomass, waste wood and sawdust to be burned as fuel to heat the brick kilns. Heavy fuel oil was used as the fuel source previously. As a result significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are achieved.
