JJ Invests in E-Learning to Progress Next Generation

National wholesaler JJ Foodservice is working with bespoke online training company, Bolt, to offer a programme of intense, structured training for its next generation of talent.  

HR Manager for JJ Foodservice Joanna Florczak said, “We want to support our people to be the best they can be – it’s a big investment to develop and progress the next leaders within our business.”

The modules cover a range of topics including motivating teams, communicating effectively, stress management, delegation, negotiation, coaching and health and safety, to name a few.

JJ’s investment follows research conducted last year. “95% of managers said that training was important to them and 89% were keen to receive more in the future”, said Joanna.

“We’ve responded by investing in a comprehensive programme covering the areas they told us were important to them”, she added.

Bolt was chosen as the training supplier because of its contemporary, forward-thinking approach. “At JJ Foodservice, we invest in technology to make shopping easier for our customers so when it came to looking for a learning partner – Bolt’s mobile-friendly modules really stood out,” she added.

Modules can be accessed easily on a desktop or mobile device and completed in minutes. “It’s nice to work with a business that shares our passion for tech”, she added.

The training is starting with immediate effect across all eleven JJ Foodservice branches.
