eCornell Bolsters Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group's Growth with Online Training
ECornell announced today that it has been selected by the acclaimed
Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group (B&BHG), an industry
leader in hospitality, to provide an online professional development
program for employees working at each of the group's 26 restaurants .
“We're thrilled to partner with B&BHG to help prepare their staff
and operations for continued growth and success,” said Chris Proulx,
eCornell's Chief Executive Officer. “The restaurant business isn't an
easy one, but B&BHG’s focus on continuous education and improvement
is one way to ensure the group remains innovative and one step ahead.”
B&BHG’s learning and development program will support its business
strategy and the eCornell partnership is just one of these initiatives.
Selected staff members will be invited to take one course from a
hand-picked survey of eCornell courses across multiple disciplines.
“At B&BHG, our primary focus continues to be growth. We’re rapidly
expanding and to move forward, we need a learning and development
solution that we can implement quickly and scale up easily. For us,
eCornell was the only choice -- it combines Cornell's high-caliber
content and industry thought leadership with a flexible, scalable online
platform,” said Rajan Lai, Vice President of Human Resources for
