Coffee Giant Starbucks hire 1,000 apprentices
14 September 2012
The coffee highstreet chain has announced plans to hire 1,000 apprentices over the next two years.
Up to 700 of the apprentices will be based in London, where they will gain an apprenticeship qualification equivalent to five A-C GCSE grades.
Starbucks will run the recruitment process during the year and apprenticeship training will occur over 12 months. This will involve a combination of on the job, classroom and internet-based training. Those who successfully complete the scheme will be offered a permanent position at coffee giant.
London Mayor Boris Johnson was involved in promoting the scheme. Earlier this week, he joined Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz at the flagship branch in Mayfair, where he tried his hand at coffee making.
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
With a high number of employees on payroll, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour demanding to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
