CRANSTON, RI —To help reduce some stress that comes with running a bakery, the Bread Bakers Guild of America has partnered with the Good Jobs Institute (GJI) for a free session on June 12 from 5:00-6:15 p.m. EST. The session will cover how bakery owners and operators can improve business performance and employee experience while combining an investment in people with operational choices.
The event will explore four operational choices proven to lower employee turnover and increase profitability: focus and simplify; standardize and empower; cross-train; and operate with slack. Attendees will come away from the session with an understanding of the value of good jobs from a business standpoint and knowledge about changes other leaders have made to create good jobs systems.
Led by GJI fellow Amanda Silver, attendees will also hear from three bakery operators who have experience with making these changes in their own operations: Natalie Abrams of Colson Patisserie, Amy Scherber of Amy’s Bread and Kim Vallejo of She Wolf Bakery.
This session is the first of a two-part series with GJI on the Good Jobs Strategy. The optional second session will be held on July 18 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
