Investments made by foodservice equipment companies into staff training have increased considerably in recent years, but there is still work to do, according to the initial findings of this year’s FEJ & Catering Insight Job Satisfaction Survey.
Industry opinion on the level of training that companies provide to staff remains heavily polarised judging by the responses so far.
An encouraging 48% of respondents insist they are “satisfied” with the current level of training they receive to carry out their role effectively.
However, 26% of respondents wish they could get more training than they are currently afforded, while a further 26% claim they receive no training at all.
The opportunity to attend an external training course is the favoured option for catering equipment executives. 50% of those polled say that attending a course off-site offers the most effective form of training in their opinion.
On-the-job training from a colleague also ranked highly, with 36% of workers citing this as their preferred option.
Full analysis of the FEJ & Catering Insight Job Satisfaction Survey will continue as the results come in and we are urging everybody to take part in order to create the best possible data.
The survey is completely anonymous and does not require any obligatory contact information to be filled in.
