Do you know how Worldchefs is helping the 93% of culinary businesses having difficulty finding quality professionals?
Global cuisine is a fast growing industry with a highly mobile and very diverse workforce, reaching $5,776 billion (US) in 2017 and estimated to grow at a rate of 5% over the next five years.
In such a dynamic environment it can be time consuming and resource intensive for employers to find people with the right skills. In fact, a 2016 survey found that a staggering 93% of culinary businesses have difficulty finding the quality professionals they required.
Finding people with the right skills is particularly challenging in the culinary profession, as most of the learning for cooks and chefs takes place in the kitchen, rather than in organised training centres. This means that the majority of the skills people develop are invisible to potential employers.
As a result, even highly skilled professionals may be overlooked and not considered for opportunities which would enable them to realise their full potential.
If employers are to reduce the time and cost is takes to recruit globally, then they need more efficient ways of finding people with the right skills, starting by ensuring busy professionals can easily make every skill visible.
