WyckWyre acquires online food safety training platform
WyckWyre Food & Hospitality Online Hiring Systems announced that it has acquired the online food safety training platform Keeping It Kleen.
With the acquisition, WyckWyre plans to use Keeping It Kleen's training platform to create a learning management system that allows employers to manage branded training content, assign courses to employees and track overall progress, according to a news release.
The training module, scheduled for release this year, will fully integrate with WyckWyre's hiring and digital onboarding systems, the release said. WyckWyre also plans to create a retail brand based on Keeping It Kleen's food safety and handling products, which will first be sold throughout Mainesource Food & Party Warehouse locations, with plans to branch out to other retailers throughout late 2014 and into early 2015.
"The acquisition shows our commitment to creating the first food and hospitality-specific talent management system," said Lisa DiVirgilio, WyckWyre's company director. "WyckWyre and Keeping It Kleen coming together strengthens our customers' ability to not only hire, but train and retain excellent employees all on one platform."
