Succession planning delivers a consistent and memorable catering experience
7 February 2024
Shining a spotlight on National Apprenticeship Week celebrates apprenticeships' positive impact on individuals, businesses, and the wider economy.
As an independent, family-owned company, Harrison Catering recognises people as our biggest asset; this is why investing in learning and development opportunities such as apprenticeships, yields tangible long-term benefits.
With the support of mentors and award-winning robust development training programmes delivered through our online training platform, the Harrison Learning Hub (HLH), and endorsed by the Institute of Hospitality (IoH), apprenticeships assist with:
- reducing recruitment costs
- delivering loyalty, retention and long service
- driving engagement and productivity
- delivering business continuity
Apprenticeships provide a fantastic opportunity for our people to learn new skills and thrive in the workplace, which are fundamental to succession planning. We have many success stories where kitchen porters and catering assistants progress to more technical craft roles, such as chefs and management.
With our industry reputation for learning and development and our passion for cooking and service, we will continue to champion the benefits that apprenticeships bring to our business and the wider hospitality industry.
