About Hotcourses Group


What is it like to work for Hotcourses Group

My Manager
My Manager
Hotcourses are developing their own internal coaches so that they can run their own coaching programme, along with additional workshops to support the programme when finished. They have a continuous approach to managing performance. July sees a ‘Main Review’, there is a November ‘Mini Review’, a February ‘Mini Review’ and then in May a more in depth ‘Learning & Development Review’, which identifies a personal development plan and identifies learning to be put into the training plan for July to August of the year.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Hotcourses send out a monthly health and wellbeing bulletin. They also encourage team activities around sporting events. The company’s Head of People is a qualified mediator who has resolved any grievances informally through this method. Hotcourses have a very paternalistic management team, as they manage many young people where this is their first place of work. The company train their Managers to deal with situations promptly and refer to the right person to give an individual approach to stress related matters.
My Team
My Team
Hotcourses put on a Dragons Den Team Competition which runs throughout the year. Following a new structure they wanted teams to interact, so this year have mixed up people in teams. This approach has improved team interaction and collaboration. Their programme has included a Dragons Den pitch (three out of four pitches won and implemented), a Trust game, obstacles and people paired with one blind folded, a helium pole game, a Sports Day and Culture lunch days. It has now become an annual programme every year and in results from a company based survey it was shown that communication within the business is now rated ‘great’ by 78% of employees (in comparison to last year when only 48% rated it as such).
