Hear it first, through the Grapevine! Mellors Catering Services has launched a new and exciting communications tool named “Grapevine”, available to all 2,000 Mellors employees.

This exciting development comes after vital feedback was gathered from employees, highlighting a need to consolidate communications into one central platform. Grapevine is available to download in the Google Play Store (for Android users) or in the App Store (for Apple users). To use on a computer, users can login to the website by visiting https://thegrapevine.mellorscatering.co.uk/.

The tool aims to keep staff better informed with all the latest company news and collaborate teams together by sharing best practice and improving knowledge.  Grapevine boasts a fantastic selection of features and functionalities, all in one central place! Users are able to share messages with other team members, post on their feed, access additional resources and keep up to date with latest news.

Grapevine has adopted a simple, yet effective design mimicking certain features from other social media platforms that many of us know and love - ensuring users can navigate with ease.

Tony Trainor, Chief Executive Officer at Mellors Catering Services said: “We’re delighted to have rolled Grapevine out to all  Mellors staff  after 12 months in the making. We constantly strive to improve the wellbeing of our employees and effective communication is central to this. The app, available on-the-go, encourages communication to flow upwards as well as down and aims to provide easy access to central resources for all our team members.”

Ethan Anderson, HR advisor said: “It has been a pleasure working on such an exciting project which will benefit all our employees, helping to build employee relations and staff wellbeing”.

Anna McCulloch, a catering manager from Dean Trust, Broadoak High School said: “I find it very interesting and informative; you can see what other catering  teams are doing and get some great ideas to put into your own unit! Having senior management comment on pictures gives you a boost knowing that they have seen how hard you’re working.

“Being able to directly send messages to the relevant people is brilliant. It has made me become more aware of the Mellors family”.
