To mark Mental Health Awareness Week (May 18-24th) and opening up our mental health training from Healthy Hospo to all individual learners (not just outlet accounts), we’re giving away 10 subscriptions to sleep, meditation and relaxation app Calm, worth USD70 each.
To win one of the 10 one-year Calm subscriptions, we’re asking the hospitality community two things:
Of course, existing Small Batch learners who’ve already completed the course (well done!) are also eligible. But they still need to go to Small Batch Learning on Facebook and share the competition post. We’ll select 10 learners randomly who complete both 1 and 2 above, and announce the winners after June 15th.
Please note, to sign up and complete the training you do not need to belong to a bar. Small Batch Learning, the free online training platform specifically built to provide workplace learning in the hospitality industry, is now available to individuals – not just staff members of hospitality businesses that train their teams online with Small Batch Learning.
The company has adjusted its product and technology to help support those many bartenders and hospo staff around the world who have lost their jobs – and their team – due to lockdown.
“There have always been serious mental and physical health issues facing our industry, which unfortunately were often pushed aside or even laughed off. But now, with many hospitality staff finding themselves suffering from a new kind of pressure, covid-19 has thrust hospitality’s wellbeing firmly under the spotlight,” says Duncan Campbell, COO of Small Batch Learning.
“Whether you’re waiting to get a team back to work, or sadly have lost your job, this partnership with Healthy Hospo will help businesses and individuals better promote mental health.”
For new independent learners, since their learner account stays with them for life, if they start to train on Small Batch Learning now as an individual, and then later start a new job where the team is also using Small Batch Learning, they (and their learning record) can be added to that outlet without any fuss – and no need to repeat the same training.
In other words: any time an independent learner spends on the platform training now is also an investment in their future career and their future workplace recognition.
