Learning & Development
We pride ourselves on offering our teams a year-round programme of world-class training and personal development. This is delivered by our own team of professionals across all areas and levels of the business.
A Great Place to Work
For the second year in a row, The Doyle Collection has been deemed a ‘Great Place to Work’ by the world’s largest people excellence programme. We were recognised after an external assessment and employee survey, as well as an audit of the company’s Culture and People practices.
Graduate Management Programme
Relaunched in 2018, our Graduate Management Programme is a two-year scheme designed to develop the Doyle Collection “Managers of Tomorrow”. This programme presents candidates with the opportunity to gain experience in all areas of the business over an eighteen-month period before progressing to a supervisory role for the last six months of the scheme.
Building our Doyle Community is so important to us. Via our internal website and Facebook page, our employees can keep in touch with team activity across the group, i.e. sporting days out, bake-offs, summer parties, individual awards, funny videos and how our employee family is engaged with and helping local communities and charities.
Just what is it that makes The Doyle Collection such a rewarding place to work?
We could write about our official ‘Great Place to Work’ title. Or, we could write about the successful career-progression courses we run or our wonderful group-wide ‘Belonging Days’. We could even write about the many perks we offer our teams. However, we think it would be better for you to hear direct from our team members themselves.
Here they share why they enjoy working with The Doyle Collection, how their careers have progressed and why they are: ‘proud to be part of it’.
When we ask our teams regarding the most important element in their day-to-day work, ‘Wellbeing’ has consistently emerged top of the list. Our month-long Wellbeing Festival comprises such activities as ‘Yoga in the Park’, ‘Smoothie Mornings’, ‘healthy cooking masterclasses’ and even ‘doggie de-stress days’!
To celebrate the exciting international make-up of our teams, we established August 11th as our annual ‘Belonging Day’. On this day, each hotel hosts a series of events to foster generous spirit and to celebrate diversity.
A Sweet Tooth
We encourage our teams to celebrate special occasions with cake. That is, cake created by our highly-skilled pastry chefs or simply team homemade creations. We’ve even held cake sales and competitions (hosted by a former Great British Bake-Off winner, no less!) to hone that competitive edge and to raise money for charity.
