Clean Juice Expands Training and Engagement with Clarifi™ Talent Development from HotSchedules
Quickly growing fast casual juice brand deploys training program across its corporate and franchise-owned stores, helping managers and employees deliver consistent guest experiences.
AUSTIN, Texas and ATLANTA, May 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HotSchedules®, the leading provider of workforce and back office solutions for the restaurant and hospitality industries, today announced that Clean Juice is using its Clarifi Talent Development Module to successfully deploy a branded training program to engage, train and develop its managers and employees across its growing franchise community.
“Clarifi Talent Development made it possible to deploy a consistent training program for all of our employees, whether they work in California or Florida. The learning management system is easy to use since it’s accessible from their computers or from the app on their smartphones,” said Alexa Diffee, director of training at Clean Juice. “We’ve uploaded over 25 training and education videos with exam questions. So far, they’ve been the most effective tool for enabling our teams and tracking the training’s effectiveness.”
Husband-and-wife team Landon and Kat Eckles founded Clean Juice, the only USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise, with the mission of inspiring others to be healthy in body and strong in spirit. Since opening its flagship store in 2015, the company has grown to 32 locations with another 87 in development. Clean Juice rolled out its Clean Juice University to 1,200 employees across 16 states with over 1,000 hours of training taken so far.
“The opening of our Sarasota store was smoother than ever thanks to the training employees received through our Clean Juice University,” said Tatum Gordon, general manager at Clean Juice in Sarasota, Fla. “Our teams already knew the products and how to make smoothies because the video training and exams were available on-demand and assigned prior to opening day.”
Clarifi Talent Development is a robust learning and performance management platform that provides easy-to-use content management functionality with social collaboration built in to connect and engage team members.
“It’s exciting to see how Clean Juice and other emerging fast casual brands are developing learning and training programs that leverage award-winning technology such as Clarifi Talent Development to drive employee engagement, productivity and operational consistency. The company and its founders clearly have a people-first mindset. We’re proud to support Clean Juice’s owners, managers and hourly employees as they deliver great guest experiences that drive loyalty, retention and overall growth,” said Mike Arenth, CEO at HotSchedules.
