One of Australia’s largest corporate hospitality groups, Solotel, was one of Typsy’s first corporate customers and has since been training its staff successfully with Typsy for 18 months.

New: Typsy launches ‘Buy one Give one’ to support hospitality social enterprises

Posted by Glennise Pinili on Jan 30, 2018 8:09:00 AM

When we think about the hospitality industry, what often comes to mind is the food, cocktails, hotels, bars and restaurants. But behind all that, what is hospitality, really?

Look up its definition and you’re reminded that hospitality is “the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors or strangers”.

Essentially, it’s the people who are at the root of the hospitality industry. It’s built on kindness, being hospitable to others and showing compassion. Without the people, the industry doesn’t exist.

Here at Typsy, we want to help fuel that and be that kind stranger who smiles at you, or the person who helps you when you need a hand. That’s why we’re supporting hospitality social enterprises with Buy one Give one.

How to create a training program for your restaurant (that works)

Posted by Andrew Carlson on Jan 23, 2018 8:23:00 AM

Growing up in the restaurant industry, you learn that not all restaurants are created equal. There are different concepts, various positions and each restaurant has their own version of what training means to them.

When I first started working in restaurants, I was given a manual and the trainer never opened it once. The person who trained me wasn’t even certified. She was just someone that the manager instructed and said to me, “Andrew is going to shadow you for the day” and she looked at me, looked at the manager, back at me and said, “Don’t get in my way”.  

With a giant *gulp*, I shadowed her and simply watched as she worked - for the whole eight hours. When it was my turn to be a server, I was making mistakes left and right. My manager pulled me aside and asked why I was making these simple mistakes. I told them that’s what I observed, and that's what was being shown to me.

Although I didn’t know it at the time, that was my first lesson in creating a training program.

The longest list of hospitality schools in the world

Posted by Felicity Thomlinson on Jan 19, 2018 9:33:00 AM

We would love your help! Starting today, we are aiming to create the longest list of hospitality schools in the world. Can you help us do it?

Why are we building the longest list of hospitality schools in the world?

We want to provide a handy resource to students who are thinking of studying hospitality in another country. We know that many people studying hospitality are interested in travel and would be keen to attend a hospitality school overseas.

Also, no-one else has done it and we love to be groundbreaking at Typsy!
