CSR: Supplier development
Moorreesburger is an exciting venture that combines a training facility, restaurant, bakery and micro-brewery, as well as student accommodation all in one location, adding value to Moorreesburg as well as the greater Swartland and its people. Omni HR Consulting is proud to support local communities and to assist in supporting a sustainable future for Moorreesburger.
Moorreesburger launched in January 2017 with a group of seven learners on a twelve-month learnership in bakery skills. The aim of the learnership, to upskill local youth of Moorreesburg and allow them to be exposed to a classroom and bakery environment, making them marketable to outside businesses. The learners were also expected to work in the restaurant environment and gained valuable skills. Subsequently a further three, eight-week, bakery skills programmes have been offered to previously disadvantaged and local youth in Moorreesburg. The programme is accredited with the FoodBev SETA. These programmes have allowed us to offer focused and practical training interventions, allowing for a larger group of learners to become skilled.
The on-site bakery is managed by a Master Baker who also instructs and coaches our learners, allowing the bakery to supply the restaurant with fresh breads and confectionary daily. They also work on an order basis, regularly supplying to local schools and for various functions. This allows for work integrated learning and the learners can see how their skills impact on business. Moorreesburger is the ideal training facility for both small and larger groups of up to fifteen delegates. The environment is conducive to learning and Moorreesburger can offer a variety of learning and development initiatives that suit the needs of both entry level delegates as well as those that wish to complete compliance training or add to their skills set.
There has been a successful Retail Workforce Readiness Programme run at Moorresburger where learners engaged in both classroom and practical learning allowing them to build on their entrepreneurial and key business skills.
Not only has Moorreesburger employed some of the previous learners, but the opportunity was also given to local qualified Moorreesburg residents to apply for and be employed in positions at Moorreesburger.
In addition to the programmes offered Omni has been involved in the sourcing of learners, the training interventions and the operational support including Human Resources and IT support.
We value each individual, the team that they are a part of, and how each individual and team are able to better themselves through learning and development.
We see this as a journey, where attending delegates are able to develop new skills, put these skills into practice, and realise their goals in a challenging and fulfilling environment.Moorreesburger has continued to grow, allowing more youth to be employed to service the growing needs as Moorresburger becomes a firm favourite with the local residents.
