SIR ALEX FERGUSON'S latest book, Leading, which reveals managerial techniques honed during his decades in football, was among the items gifted to this cocktail bar chain's sales managers at their inaugural conference in September. The event was part of the launch of Revolution Bars Group's new career development plan for staff, which should see 70% of management vacancies filled internally. The Ashton-under-Lyne-based group, which employs 2,113 people, floated on the stock market in 2015 and plans to add five new bars a year to the current 58. The job is good for personal growth (an 82% positive score) and employees are completely clear about what is expected of them (81%). The training is also of great benefit to them personally (79%, seventh). Opportunities for career development include the 12-month internal trainee assistant manager programme, which has a yearly intake of up to 120. More than half of all the firm's managers have been through it. Many senior bosses started out as glass collectors and bartenders. While staff, two-thirds of whom are on zero-hours contracts, feel exhausted most days when they get home (27% positive, the lowest score) they have plenty of fun (89%, fifth) and believe they can make a valuable contribution to the organisation's success (86%). The group's managers, meanwhile, talk honestly and openly (83%) and help staff fulfil their potential (74%). www.revolution-bars.co.uk

Featured Workplace Factors

My team is fun to work with

This year RBG's have started using vlogs to communicate certain key initiatives within the business; however they're not your standard video blog because of the team demographic, so the company had to work on making them really engaging through new artwork, latest soundtracks and having strong clear messages throughout. A recent example was sent out for RBG's General Managers to communicate with their teams during team meetings. The vlog was watched 400 times, so the company know each site watched the vlog on average 6 times, demonstrating a strong level of engagement and interaction at site level to help cascade information throughout the business.

RBG are very proud of their blended learning approach. Their employees, staff and management alike receive training through a number of channels, including workshops, on the job training, e-learning, role specific workbooks, conferences, bespoke development plans, apprenticeship schemes and more formal modular training programmes. Many of the teams have little or no work experience when they join RBG, so with this in mind the company have developed the ACE (Amazing Customer Experience) training programme, which helps them with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful. It offers interactive e-learning modules that cover a range of topics, from Health and Safety and Cocktail Spec tests to Hospitality training. One of the most exciting developments over the last 12 months has been the launch of role specific modular training programmes. Every management role in the company is now eligible to attend a 4-6 months modular training programme that supports the development of their management skills. The learning objectives of these programmes are not bar related and help Managers develop personal skills in coaching, time management, communication methods, effective feedback tools and even delegation.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
