The second type of organisation was described as “Hot”. Think Ally McBeal’s workplace and you have a good idea of a hot work environment. Hot organisational climates are full of emotional labour, with employees being on display for their looks, style and demeanour. Gabriel and Mano-Negrin say hot environments derive from a trend towards “aesthetic labour” – a focus on looking good. So where would we find this ‘sexual simmer’? It is apparently the trademark of many industries including tourism, advertising, mass media, catering and retail.
