Remember Gratitude Changes Everything

Remember Gratitude Changes Everything

Hello fellow Foodies,

It’s so easy to become despondent with everything that’s going on in our country right now.  Sometimes it’s better to avoid the news and social media for a few days – it’s refreshing to be unburdened about things you probably cannot do anything about.

We’ve realised that a little bit of gratitude goes a long way in lifting your spirits – if you just take a look at the suffering around you, you will realise that simple things such as seeing, hearing, smelling and breathing are indeed simple things that we have long taken for granted.

There is a lot of discussion about employee mental health and how COVID, unemployment, work stress (if you are lucky enough to still be employed) and a million other things are affecting the health and wellness of our work force.  In the food industry this could have devastating consequences especially if our “front line workers” are not feeling motivated or in the least bit committed to perform their tasks with utmost diligence. Organisational culture and more specifically, food safety culture have never been more important.

Sadly, we do not have all the answers when it comes to health and wellness, but we can help when it comes to food safety culture!  We recently launched an ONLINE Leadership and Food Safety Culture short course aimed at equipping top management with the basic knowledge of these concepts and how they play out in the food safety environment.  Our 1-day Food Safety Culture Excellence Workshop is also perfect for training up “culture champions” who can roll out various programmes throughout the organisation.  This workshop can be offered on-site or through our virtual instructor-led training (VILT) platforms. E-mail for any on-site or VILT training enquiries.

Coming up soon:

Keep smiling; keep shining!
