Does there seem to be diversity at Habitat?

Pros

The brand itself is very nice and there are some talented people working there.

Cons

It’s a shame that talent isn’t nurtured, therefore there is a really high turnover of people. It is a blame culture, there’s some silent bullying going on and senior managers blatantly favour some employees. Hard work is not being recognised. It is hard to find trust in the senior management as they don’t seem to know what they are doing. No real scope for career development either.

Advice to Management

Start listening to your employees. Put a training programme in place. Celebrate the successes instead of focusing on the setbacks and finding people to blame. Get better at recruiting senior managers.
