Bartlett Mitchell introduces new people development scheme

23/02/2018 - 11:16
Contract caterer Bartlett Mitchell has set up a new people development scheme aimed at ‘nurturing talent, supporting succession planning and attracting new starts to the business’.

The company says its PEAR programme- which stands for Performance, Engagement, Achievement, Recognition- has been designed primarily to develop competencies among employees and prepare them for the next stage in their career progression.

A team of Bartlett Mitchell employees will be selected to spearhead the structured and targeted training initiative and mentor the candidates.

The length of the programme will vary according to the level at which an individual is working, meaning a supervisor working towards their first management position could spend to two years getting trained.

The catering firm said it aims to recruit and train 18 individuals to meet its back and front of house business needs. This will consist of nine chefs de partie and nine baristas/hospitality assistants.

Ingrid Newbould, HR director at Bartlett Mitchell, said: “We work hard to invest in and drive our pipeline of talent and ensure our people - both existing and new - have the key skills needed to work as part of the BM family.

“PEAR will not only increase the professional status of our employees but also instil confidence in our clients that Bartlett Mitchell is a fantastic company to do business with.”
