Mission: To be people's favourite restaurant. Vision: To make Hawksmoor the best steak restaurant in the country and for Foxlow to be our neighbourhood's favourite restaurant.
“WORK HARD AND be nice to people” is the motto of this restaurant group, which has grown from a single steak joint in Spitalfields, east London, in 2006, to five restaurants across the capital — with one more on the way.
Hawksmoor’s founders Will Beckett and Huw Gott set out to create an environment in which people want to stay in an industry notorious for short-term employment.
Last year 90% of those promoted to management came up through the ranks. Staff find their training of great benefit,(78% positive) and say the group is run on strong values (83%).
The workforce of 623 — 68% of whom are under 35 — also run four Foxlow restaurants in London and a branch in Manchester. Staff are happy with their pay and benefits (72%), such as gym membership, and health and dental care. English lessons are available for anyone who needs them and last summer the team at Spitalfields learnt sign language to communicate across the restaurant floor.
