    In addition to lecture and discussion notes, this packet includes:

     Promotional flyer

     Pre-test/post-test

     Handouts

     Attendance sheet

     Certificate of completion

    This inservice has been designed to be 30 minutes in length and to be used as a tool to train foodservice employees. We have written an outline for what we see as important steps in studying this inservice topic. However, it’s up to you to prepare in advance and tailor your inservice to your employees. Consider:

     Employees’ backgrounds and experience levels

     Problems or areas for improvement specific to your facility

     Specific department or facility policies relevant to this topic

     Specific local standards relevant to this topic

    While planning how you’ll approach your inservice, keep in mind that participants remember:

     70% of what they talk over with others — discussion

     80% of what they use and do — projects, scenarios

     95% of what they teach others — one-on-one training, student presentations

    The more involved and focused participants are, the more they will absorb. It is important to keep communication flowing throughout the lecture by continuously involving the participants. You can accomplish this by asking questions, having participants read handouts aloud, and asking for examples of concepts and standards.

    To be fully effective, training should begin on a new employee’s first day. Then it should be continually reviewed — even for long-term employees. And, you can strengthen lessons learned by setting a good example, actively enforcing policies, and recognizing and rewarding a job well done.
