About Hay Group

What is it like to work for Hay Group

My Manager
My Manager
Managers have access to an additional set of guidelines in the HR manual which talk them through how to handle key issues and situations. They run workshops as part of the management development programme. One of the aims is to get managers together from different parts of the business so they can build their support networks. They also have a document which clearly outlines the expectations of a line manager at Hay Group so managers know what they are aspiring to. All managers have access to 1-2-1s and ad hoc advice and support from their HR business partner.

Employees raising money for any charity are supported by their sponsorship policy. This will match any money donated by Hay Group employees up to a value of £250. Hay Group supports the Princes Trust because they feel it reflects what they believe in as a company and that the skills and experience of their employees would actually benefit the Princes Trust. All the work carried out with the Princes Trust is at a local level.

Employee recognition awards are given throughout the year and announced monthly in the Management Team's monthly newsletter. They also have an awards ceremony at their Christmas party. Employees receiving a recognition award get a letter thanking them for their efforts and are awarded vouchers of their choice. Nominations can be made by peers or managers. A suggestions scheme is also in place. Anyone who makes a suggestion receives a mug and those who make a suggestion that results in a tangible benefit for the company receive an award in the form of vouchers.
