If you’ve been following the buzz on Gravy’s social media channels, you’re in for a treat! Our team members have been on a whirlwind adventure, attending exciting events both at the local and national levels. From the vibrant landscapes of the DMV area to the sunny vibes of Central Florida, our dedicated staff has been leaving their mark everywhere they go. So, what’s been keeping us so busy? Let’s dive into the action-packed world of the Gravy event schedule!
Local Chapter Events: Connecting with Communities
Our commitment to establishing strong connections with local communities has led us to actively participate in a range of local chapter events. Associations like NACE, MPI, ACF and ILEA have been great outlets for networking with regional businesses. These gatherings provide the perfect platform for us to engage with like-minded individuals, share insights, and build relationships that extend beyond the professional realm. From insightful panel discussions to hands-on workshops, we’ve been right in the heart of these events, soaking up knowledge and exchanging ideas.
Job Fairs: Nurturing Future Talent
We believe that nurturing and supporting the next generation of talent is essential for the growth of any industry. That’s why our team has been enthusiastically attending job fairs like Better Together, Employ Prince George’s, Catholic Charities and more – where we get the chance to interact with young professionals and community members who are eager to make their mark in the world of food service and hospitality. Our representatives have been on hand to provide guidance, share experiences, and introduce these bright minds to the dynamic opportunities that await them in the GravyWork community.
National Conferences: Learning and Leading
Gravy’s thirst for knowledge is insatiable, and that’s why we’ve been actively participating in national conferences such as the FRLA Summit, SHFM National Conference, CFHLA Hob Nob and more! These gatherings bring together industry leaders, innovators, and experts from around the country, creating an environment ripe for learning, collaboration, and growth. By immersing ourselves in these conferences, we stay at the forefront of industry trends, technological advancements, and best practices, ensuring that we continuously provide top-notch services to our clients.
Networking Programs: Building Relationships that Last
At the heart of every successful venture are the relationships we build. That’s why we’ve been making waves at networking events, forging connections with industry peers, potential partners, and clients. But that’s not all we’ve done, in the recent months we’ve also begun hosting regular onboarding events through Eventbrite for our workers! Not only has this allowed us to meet our workers firsthand, but it gives eager new jobseekers a chance to get fully onboarded through our app and ready to accept their first GravyWork job! These interactions extend beyond the confines of business cards – they’re about creating meaningful bonds that translate into collaborative projects, shared ventures, and lasting friendships.
As the Gravy event calendar continues to fill up, our dedication to active participation, continuous learning, and community engagement remains unwavering. We’re excited to keep sharing our journey with you through stunning pictures, inspiring stories, and insightful takeaways from each event we attend. So, whether you’re following our adventures online or you’re at the forefront of the next event we’re attending, remember that at Gravy, we’re not just attending events – we’re shaping experiences, fostering growth, and making a mark on the vibrant tapestry of the food service and hospitality industry.
