About YO! Sushi UK Ltd


What is it like to work for YO! Sushi UK Ltd

Leadership
Leadership
In the last 12 months the Senior Management Team have introduced "Back to the floor"; an initiative that sees all Head Office employees go back to work in restaurants for a day, from CEO downwards. The impact has been fantastic and the initiative has improved communication and enhanced understanding of both sides’ job roles. The CEO is extremely down to earth, personable and 100% people focused. He will happily listen to any ideas from any member of the YO! Team and implement initiatives quickly if he agrees there is value in doing so.
