We like the idea of online training, but it’s easy to think it’s just for big restaurant groups with lots of resources. In fact there’s a lot that an independent restaurant or cafe can do to get much of their training online. The benefits are considerable – better consistency, training sessions that can be run at any time, and access to material that can be sourced from industry as well as what you create.
In this interview, Ken Burgin talks again with restaurant trainer John Isbell. It’s a follow-up to Podcast 225 on How to Create an Effective & Affordable Training Program. We discussed the areas that best lend themselves for online training, the ‘baby steps’ you can take to get an online program started, integrating online sessions with face-to-face training, and ways that staff can help create content.
We also talked about ready-to-use training systems, using YouTube videos, the staff who may not be so quick to adapt, and measuring ROI. I hope you’ll get lots of inspiration from this interview – I know I did! You can find John on Linkedin and on Twitter…
