      Leadership care about their people

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Colt is largest enough to make a difference in the market but small enough to care. I personally feel and have witnessed the senior leadership team demonstrating how they put people first.

      Cons

      Workload can get crazy. Things aren't always organised well which leaves unrealistic pressure on the team to deliver.

      Tide is turning

      Nov 10, 2021 - HR- Department in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Ability to take on feedback- Over the last year significant feedback has been given around changes needed to be made with the structure in HR and how it operates. Now changes with HR leadership have been made these will start to make a difference. Development- Due to the type of organisation it is, there is scope to be involved in great initiatives which have a global span. You can interact with HR colleagues in numerous locations to achieve one goal. Additionally, there is an ability to join external development schemes which are available via networks and companies which Colt partner with. Focus on team morale and individuals- There is a genuine drive to engage the team members through drop in sessions, organised virtual catch ups and a good deal of comms.

      Cons

      Ability to hone in on HR focus - Previously there have been too many HR led initiatives, this will hopefully change as longer standing members of the HR leadership team are replaced.

      Weak HR “Leader”ship

      Oct 21, 2021 - Human Resources Professional in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Quick to adapt during the pandemic - Good flexible working options - Competitive pension scheme in the UK

      Cons

      - The current HRLT team is mediocre and struggles to show empathy towards employees experiencing hardship. - Bullying allegations within HR were totally downplayed and neglected. Not only was this not dealt with for a long time but the response was very nonchalant and inappropriate. - Attrition levels in HR are quite high despite management saying they’re not worried about it and suggesting it’s “natural”. - Projects get constantly delayed, canceled or dropped at the last minute because of lack of strategic vision. - The HR function is very much reactive, inefficient and not respected in the business.
