    Afkeurende mening over directeur

    Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij Holiday Extras voor meer dan 5 jaar

    Pluspunten

    Great community feel to the business people are very supportive, BBQ's, - it can be a fun place to work but HX rely heavily on the 'fun' bit to keep you in the business.

    Minpunten

    there is a divide between the Contact Centre and the rest of the business which is a shame as without the CC there would no HX - which leads to my next point, low salary (a good bonus scheme in place) but it always feels like they try to avoid paying bonus where possible. To progress in the business is the biggest challenge - Holiday Extras are growing and to push that further they look for talent externally when actually...

    Wake up to the idea that people want to come to work, feel valued and go home knowing they did a good job and benefitted the business. Move away from a low basic salary with a bonus structure to a reasonable salary with no bonus and just profit share - evidence shows that it creates a less stressful environment which improves wellbeing and productivity and develop and nurture the talent you have in the business before...

    Pluspunten

    Great career progression - if you're willing to work for it. I began in the Contact Center and worked my way up to the SEO team. I worked hard in order to move up, but I'd argue that's exactly how it should be. What's more I felt my hard work was rewarded. I always felt like I was trusted in my role, which makes a huge difference to work output. Your ideas are always listened to, and if possible, people give you that...

    Minpunten

    Having started in the Contact Center, I know how tough that area of the business can be in comparison to the rest of the business due to the nature of the work however I do think that they are treated far better than other people in the same line of work.

    Advies aan management

    Keep doing what you're doing - keep pushing the values, maintain the culture as best you can and keep looking for ways to treat your staff because happy staff definitely makes for a successful company.

    Pluspunten

    I've worked here for three years now and have no intention of leaving. Holiday Extras is the best company I've worked for due to the great atmosphere and culture they work hard to create. It's a fun place to work with all the extras they give you (BBQs, birthdays off, constant treats and rewards) but that's a small part of why I love it here. Whilst it's fun, there's no shortage of hard work and challenging targets...

    Minpunten

    They're still working on the pay structure and clarity around that, but it's improved in the past few months. As with any company there are the usual problems with certain individuals and management styles but overall these get addressee quickly if they're really issues. As the company is growing, the culture is unfortunately getting diluted so that's something everyone needs to work hard at to keep.

    Advies aan management

    Listen to your experts, keep pushing us to succeed and continue working on the pathways work to clarify salaries and progression.

    Pluspunten

    BBQs in the summer, fun activities when you’re allowed to take part.

    Minpunten

    Very clicky business, it’s not what you know it’s who you know. Impossible targets and high turn over of staff, you feel constantly stressed and next to no support. Expect no work/life balance.

    Development and progression opportunities Employee wellbeing and work/life balance Benefits and profit share Innovation and growth of business Great teams, values and culture

    Minpunten

    Basic pay could be better against market-it’s fair but not competitive Leadership could work more strategically and effectively as a team-too in the operational detail of individual areas

    Stick to the great growth strategy in place and don’t be afraid to transform and change the business for the better to achieve this. Trust in the amazing teams you have!

    Pluspunten

    Holiday Extras has a great attitude to accommodating staff welfare – most particularly flexible working hours when it comes to making appointments, last-minute family priorities and general life admin that doesn't warrant taking holiday. The people are generally great and the company has a good overall culture when it comes to balancing work and personal commitments.

    Minpunten

    For all the benefits, flexibility, training and fun activities available to staff, sometimes you just want a salary and/or job title that reflects and rewards your contribution to the business fairly, because as wonderful as summer BBQs may be, they certainly don't pay the mortgage. Pay and progression seem to be a very taboo subject despite the forward and progressive attitudes in other areas of the business.

    Advies aan management

    Pay reviews and the progression of staff needn't be shrouded in mystery – open up the system and bring clarity to your benchmarking process. The secrecy is frustrating and leads to contempt, and I'm sure even resentment in some cases, which should never be the case. Furthermore, invest in developing the skills of your staff rather than relying so heavily and willingly upon external resources. Leaders are more readily...
