In an ever-evolving industry where fierce competition prevails, the pursuit of exceptional staff has emerged as a paramount challenge for businesses in the post-COVID hospitality and beverage retail landscape.

Enter Statera Academy, your key to unlocking a world of possibilities. Our private classes can be tailored to your precise needs, held right within your establishment. With flexibility in timing and locations, accommodating your team's unique schedules becomes a breeze.

But here's the icing on the cake—this investment delivers an immediate and tangible boost to your business bottom line!

Here are seven compelling reasons why offering WSET classes to your staff is the smartest move you can make:

  1. Enhanced Product Knowledge: WSET courses provide a comprehensive understanding of wines and spirits, including their origins, production methods, and unique characteristics. This knowledge empowers your staff to speak confidently about your offerings, making them more credible and trustworthy in the eyes of customers.
  1. Improved Customer Service: Well-informed staff can offer personalized recommendations, answer customer questions, and guide them in choosing the right products. This leads to improved customer satisfaction, potentially resulting in repeat business and positive word-of-mouth referrals.
  1. Upselling Opportunities: Armed with a deeper understanding of wines and spirits, your staff can effectively upsell by suggesting premium or complementary products. This not only boosts sales but also increases the average transaction value.
  1. Competitive Advantage: Being able to advertise that your staff includes certified WSET professionals sets your business apart from competitors. It signals to potential customers that your establishment values expertise and quality, giving you an edge in a crowded market.
  1. Reduced Staff Turnover: Investing in employee education demonstrates your commitment to their professional growth. This can boost morale, job satisfaction, and loyalty, ultimately reducing turnover rates and the associated recruitment and training costs.
  1. Cost Savings: Proper training can help your staff handle products with care, reducing breakage and waste. Additionally, knowledgeable staff can minimize errors in orders and inventory management, leading to cost savings over time.
  1. Brand Reputation: By investing in staff education, your business gains a reputation as a knowledgeable and trustworthy provider of wines and spirits. This can attract discerning customers and new staff who appreciate your commitment to quality and expertise.

In summary, offering WSET classes to your staff not only enhances their skills but also has a direct and positive impact on your business. It can lead to increased sales, customer satisfaction, and employee retention, ultimately contributing to the long-term success and growth of your establishment.
