At BaxterStorey we take great pride in celebrating our people and their achievements, so we are incredibly proud to be crowned Team of the Year at the Hospitality Assured Awards.
The Team of the Year Award is in recognition of our recent Hospitality Assured score of 83.2%, ranking us amongst the highest scoring organisations in the sector.
Although passionate about food, our success comes from our people; they are at the centre of everything we do. We were humbled to be recognised for our innovative approach to training and development through our training academies and bespoke range of training programmes. Since its launch in 2013, over 500 talented chefs have graduated from our Chef Academy and the Graduate Programme, now in its eighth year, receives over 500 applications from hospitality graduates every year.
Our commitment to acting sustainably and reducing our environmental footprint was also recognised by the judges, including our Sustainable Business of the Year Award win at the Edie 2018 Sustainability Leaders Awards and Best Waste Management Project Award at Footprint Waste2Zero Awards.
Noel Mahony, BaxterStorey co-chief executive, said: “We are delighted to receive this industry accolade and are immensely proud of our teams’ hard work and passion for their craft. Training and development are the foundation of our business, and it is the energy and enthusiasm of our well-trained people that allows us to keep pushing the boundaries of service excellence. We are delighted their efforts have been recognised and praised”.
