Developing and nurturing talent is the ISS way of making sure we have consistently great people with the capability to make a real difference. We continuously make sure that we give our teams a sense of purpose and personal accountability, because we know that being motivated is crucial in performing well on a day to day basis.
Using Talent Toolbox (our on-line appraisal tool) allows us to engage with our teams and make sure our training is personal to them. Our Leadership Development framework has been designed to train, progress and promote both our existing and future managers. By mentoring, our work Inspiration programme makes sure that our talent thrives. We know that a personal touch can make all the difference and make good service great. We call this the ‘Power of the Human Touch’.
Academy of Excellence
September 2014 saw the start of a special partnership between Leeds College and ISS Academy of Excellence. For this three-year journey, sixteen students were chosen,to work towards a VRQ level 1,2 & 3 diploma. The students will work both front and back of house, within the ISS business and spend time with our Food Development Team and Glynn Purnell before entering work placements.
Leeds College and the ISS partnership are extremely proud and excited to be nurturing future talent for our amazing industry.
