In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’d like to offer you some training tips from a chocolate pioneer, Cadbury.
According to the Cadbury web site, Cadbury Schweppes were forerunners in employee relations. Closing the skills gap was key for Cadbury as they allowed workers time off to further their education. They also knew how important it was for employees to have a work/life balance as recreation centers were implemented in the workplace and company excursions were arranged.
The practices of the Cadbury Brothers a century ago are still successful strategies today, with employees serving on councils where aspects of company culture, education, and training were discussed.
