Training for staff retention: Jamie's Italian

Loading the player...

Staff retention can be greatly improved by providing new recruits with the right training. BigHospitality visited a Jamie's Italian kitchen to find out more about the company's training programme.

Training is not just about teaching your employees how to do their jobs. By investing in their development, you open up their career progression opportunities within your organisation, making them feel valued. But training also gives you a chance to give new staff a lasting impression on the company's ethos and passion.

Jamie's Italian Training Academy manager for chefs Lewis Jones explained how the brand approaches training to ensure new recruits receive the education they need about ingredients, and how passion trickles down from the company's founders to its staff.
