The People Factor, the specialist HR consultancy headed by Karen Davies and supported by Simon Wilkinson as a non-executive director, has launched a new sector training module – “The Learning Factor” to support learning and development within the hospitality industry .

One example module is specifically targeted at mentoring and developing top performing general managers on their journey to multi-site area management.

Wilkinson said: “As recruitment becomes more and more difficult it is imperative that companies retain and grow their own people, the step up from GM to Area Manager is crucial and this module ensures they are coached, mentored and developed to succeed within their next role.”
