One of the big undertakings I’ve taken on with our Food Safety Practice at Gulf Stream Search is incorporating pre-employment assessments and helping companies improve their interviewing techniques in food and beverage companies.
Before I started in recruiting in 2000, I spent 9 years in instruction and training of high performance athletes as well as growing technology companies.
The same adage held true then as it does now – even with the best training, the best instruction and the best intentions, no degree of training or instruction will change a student’s behavior if they are not willing, capable or mentally ready to implement the appropriate change.
And that’s why, with the work we do helping companies elevate their Food Safety Culture by identifying and recruiting stronger talent into their organizations, I’m so focused on driving awareness to how food and beverage companies are approaching their Food Safety Culture, the good and the bad.
It’s not that the training, or the trainers, or the training companies aren’t effective at what they do.
It’s that it’s only part of the equation.
The missing ingredient is what I discuss over at The Food Safety Insider – Food Safety Culture: The Missing Ingredient.
