JourneyHR, the specialist HR consultancy, has been appointed by The Jamie Oliver Group to deliver extensive HR support and training. The world famous brand hired JourneyHR to provide creative leadership training to managers across the company, to improve teamwork and to ensure the company’s management teams are as effective as possible.

The business, created by the famous chef, has already completed one programme with JourneyHR, which delivered specialist management coaching to over 40 managers from across the organisation. The sessions were focused on motivating a team, communication skills and how to deliver great feedback.

The Jamie Oliver Group is a commercial business with a social purpose to create products in line with its values in order to educate the world around the importance of food. These strong ambitions for the company mean that it is crucial to have confident ambassadors behind its growth and success at every level.

JourneyHR worked with the managers to identify their main challenges, before introducing new methods of best practice such as feedback/feedforward, reviewing a team’s performance and engaging and motivating teams.

Aliya Vigor-Robertson, Co-Founder at JourneyHR, said:

“Managers in many businesses across all sectors are promoted on merit of their core work and often miss out on formal people management training. The Jamie Oliver Group identified that for the best results across the whole business, it is vital that their managers are also team leaders, working to develop every member of staff and creating an inspiring culture. ”

Ross Narden, Head of People and Development at The Jamie Oliver Group, said:  

“At The Jamie Oliver Group, we are always looking at ways to enhance our employee offering and expand the skills of our people. Since our first session with JourneyHR, we’ve already seen a positive impact on team management and the amazing effect it is having on the team.”
