THRIVE Louisiana helps restaurants with free online employee training

METAIRIE — The Louisiana Restaurant Association has launched “THRIVE Louisiana,” a free digital employee training tool for restaurants, according to the association’s news release.
As restaurants begin to reopen their establishments, the state guidelines indicate that COVID-19 specific-training is required for all employees. This training is offered complimentary for the first two months following sign up.
“We knew that we’d have to pivot quickly to support our restaurant and bar industry as they approached reopening,” the news release stated. “The MLevel team approached us with a Louisiana focused solution using their industry leading employee development platform. That they are offering it at no cost to our Louisiana restaurants is a great help during this stressful time.”
THRIVE Louisiana is aligned with the Office of the State Fire Marshal’s Guidelines for Restaurants, Cafés, Coffee Shops and Bars with an LDH Food-service Permit. The training can be completed in less than 30 minutes with areas of focus that include: employee health screenings; social distancing; proper handwashing; and enhanced sanitation measures.
The LRA partnered with MLEVEL to offer this resource relying on guidance from Dash Hospitality and Taylor English Duma LLP and it meets the standards required by the Governor’s Order.
