The problem

With a high level of customer traffic, it was difficult for Olivia Bistro-Boutique to provide a smooth integration into operations for new employees. The operations were simply too fast-paced to provide a good learning environment.

New employees’ first experience was stressful, they felt useless and didn’t know where to stand or what to do. Almost half of the employees left after one week on the job. Training had become a burden on the team.

Employees were not able to acquire the necessary knowledge and order errors were routinely reported.

The solution

Smooth training removed the employee from operations while allowing them to become familiar with the space, work tools, procedures and recipes.

Employees learn at their own pace without affecting operations and without incurring food waste. The employee is completely immersed in a virtual environment similar to the service line.

They become familiar with the recipe lists and other tools, the location of items and they actually practice the different steps of food production.
