Getting all your staff on the bus grows business
Te Awamutu woman Bridie Osborne has more than 20 years’ experience in the hospitality industry.
That’s why opening a hospitality consultant business was a natural choice.
Bridie was born and raised in Te Awamutu and became a qualified chef at Wintec after leaving school.
She went on to work at, and then part own, the Redoubt Bar and Eatery.
Managing a popular and busy bar meant Bridie looked after a team of employees.
She says her proudest moment was building and maintaining staff that were driven, passionate and happy to arrive at work every day.
Bridie’s new venture, called On the Bus, aims to help business owners grow their business.
On the Bus is a metaphor to describe the place business owners want their staff to be.
“Staff at the back of the bus are people who don’t want to be in your business – and they might be people who you’d rather not have on your team.”
“Staff in the middle of the bus have potential. If pushed and guided the right way they can become valuable people within your business, if you have the time to do this.
“Staff at the front of the bus are eagerly waiting for their turn to drive the bus. They strive to be the best they can be within their work environment. They know your business brand, goals, values and expectations and reach these daily.”
Bridie’s goal is to help businesses owners get all their staff on the bus and to the front of the bus.
She can assist with a range of business needs including team building, social media, recruitment, employment contracts, house rules, core values and workplace issues.
Although she specialises in hospitality she is happy to help any business.
Bridie says the most rewarding part of her job is seeing a team work well together.
She says staff who are ‘on the bus’ help build a successful business.
“Let me work with your team and driving your business to its greatest success.”
