At Holkham we aim to create a happy workplace, where our people are inspired to give their best. We carefully select the right people to join our teams and we offer a diverse range of rewarding careers. We understand that our employees determine our reputation and we work hard to create an environment where people feel valued and respected.
Our structure is designed to ensure the diversified estate benefits from the skills of specialist senior managers, who are experts in their field. The business units operate more effectively when managers are trusted and empowered to take decisions about their areas of responsibility. Managers are accountable for the performance of each business and decisions and resources are decentralised wherever possible to encourage local accountability.
We know that people perform best when they understand how their contribution fits with our vision. We ensure that each person who joins us is given a thorough induction so they are clear on their role and the behaviours we expect all our people to demonstrate. We strive to give continuous and honest feedback to our people to develop and build on their strengths.
