Opportune recently worked with the national coffee shop franchise The Coffee Club to deliver employee based training aimed at attracting talent, promote the internal training program and to demonstrate that working at The Coffee Club is a serious career opportunity.
What problem was The Coffee Club looking to solve?
The Coffee Club wanted to attract and keep the best quality talent in a highly competitive labour market. Also, they had an established internal training program but wanted more staff participation. They also had a problem with staff turn-over. To retain staff for longer they wanted to demonstrate to staff that The Coffee Cub was a great place to build their career, not just a job.
How did Opportune play a role?
Opportune Professional Development implemented our Experience Based Qualifications which mapped the Coffee Club in-house training program to align with nationally recognised qualifications such as a Certificate III, Certificate IV or a Diploma of Hospitality. This gave some serious appeal to these training programs which previously were only recognised with The Coffee Club network. We also accessed government funding options to support the cost of the training program implementation.
