A Canadian food service company is facing a staffing shortage and is reaching out to the community in the hopes to spread awareness and encourage people to apply for jobs.
“Compass Group Canada is the country’s leading foodservice and support services provider with over 25,000 associates working in more than 2,200 locations throughout the country. The company specializes in providing food services and support services across the core sectors including leading sports and leisure venues, executive dining rooms and cafes, schools, universities, seniors’ residences, and hospitals as well as remote camps and offshore oil-rigs.” (SOURCE)
Like many industries, the food services have been gravely impacted by the ongoing wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unlike restaurants, which can opt to close their doors on quiet days due to low traffic and shortage of staff, Compass Group is responsible for serving food in essential facilities such as schools, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. There is no off-season at the hospital.
“Our Chartwells team is excited to be back at school, welcoming students and faculty this fall after a challenging COVID-19 year. Our associates are passionate about ensuring they can provide a safe space for students to eat while at school – and we welcome those who would like to join our team to reach out through our career site."
