"The annual course subscription from The Hospitality Company has been a real asset to us already. It has really given us that edge as an employer in this challenging time, along with being able to recognise those A-players that are keen to grow and develop within their role. It’s great to be able to offer potential employees growth and education with us, as well as ensuring all of our leaders and future leaders alike are given a strong footing to be implementing best practice.
We intend to offer the courses to all new starters, as well as those who have been with us for a number of years and have already seen a strong interest from all of our staff. We highly recommend the subscription to any employer looking to invest in their employee’s development."
