- Is creating and maintaining e-learning courses for your restaurant group taking too much time and work?
- Are you managing multiple modules for different staff positions, or different menu items for different locations?
- Are menu changes, limited time offers, and specials communicated on a timely basis – to all staff members in all locations – to be effectively promoted?
- Are managers frustrated that training is not current or sometimes inaccurate for new hires?
- As your restaurant group grows, is the time spent managing your training growing right along with it?
- Are you saying to yourself “there must be a better way!”
- And maybe your e-learning courses could look better … but who has the time?
- Finally, how easy is it to add off-the-shelf e-learning modules from other providers – like Anti-Harassment, Alcohol Awareness, or Kitchen Safety?
If the easy, one-stop-shop e-learning platform has begun to snowball into a maintenance nightmare, Dupont Learning can show you a more automated way to implement e-learning at your restaurant group, reducing the time you spend maintaining courses, adding users, and communicating results to employees and store managers.
