2021 will see Unichef moving into schools and colleges to educate chefs on the important issues concerning Chef Wellbeing.
But what exactly is Chef Wellbeing?
Unichef is a Union for the 21st century, our opinions and thoughts exceed those of our peers and education of our profession is a main aim of all we do. Chefs no longer have to “suck it up “and work in poor surroundings with employers that care little for them, and Chef Wellbeing is a part of that new vision.
Chef wellbeing is the philosophy of getting your mind “right for the job” of giving chefs confidence in themselves to be happier and more confident in their work and to encourage employers to produce a safe and comfortable environment in which their chefs can flourish. A simple vision of education and information to give chefs a better understanding of thier work environment and the people they work with, an holistic approach to work life.
Chef wellbeing is about teaching chefs old and new about their responsibilities and making them realise the obligations they have to their colleagues, employers and customers
Many chefs contacted our Facebook page concerned at the lack of skills and knowledge of the youngsters coming into the profession and we have listened carefully to what has been said.
So, 2021 will see Unichef involve itself more and more into the sectors where we feel we can make that impact and where we feel we can learn more in order to pass that knowledge on.
In all, Chef Wellbeing is about creating a new culture, where chefs feel comfortable in what they do, are happy and have the inspiration to succeed in this amazing industry, with open discussion on subjects such as...
Mental Health Awaremess
The effects of Asthma in Kitchens
Sexual harassment and the law
Chefs legal responsibilities and employer's duty of care
Employment Law, your rights at work
Social Media involvement
Climbing the career ladder
The place of Trade Unions
Chef health, looking after your body and mind
For the very first-time chefs will get the chance to see and visualise " a better way". A way in which they not only can care for others but also themselves.
