About Olive Catering Service Ltd

What is it like to work for Olive Catering Service Ltd

My Manager
My Manager
In July 2014 Olive Catering Services employed their first ever L & D Manager. Their role is to support business retention and growth by identifying and designing L & D solutions that are focused on the achievement of the business and people strategy. By investing in this new internal role they aim to further demonstrate their ongoing commitment to people development.
As a contract catering company, Olive is committed to healthy eating and offering healthy eating choices to their customers and staff.  In 2012,Olive signed up to the Department of Health's Responsibility Deal pledge to reduce the salt in the food they produce. As part of this pledge they have put together communication packages to educate both their employees and their customers about the dangers of excessive salt levels in food and the benefits of reducing salt usage.   Their Operations teams also periodically run Healthy Eating Awareness days at their sites which enable their customers to learn more about general nutrition and health awareness.
Fair Deal
Fair Deal
Each Operations Manager has a budget of £500 to spend during the year to reward any team member for outstanding performance or for a particular achievement. Typically, this involves a modest gift (flowers/chocolates) to recognise a significant contribution to the company (e.g. record daily takings).  In their quarterly newsletter a double page spread is dedicated to photographs of their team members who have been 'caught in the act' of going above and beyond their normal job roles. This has proved very popular with their teams and helps to bring a level of cohesiveness to a company with many disparate sites.
