Bennett Hay hires culinary director

Hospitality services company, Bennett Hay, has appointed Candice Webber to the senior role of Culinary Director.

Webber will be responsible for developing Bennett Hay’s company-wide catering ethos that reflects a new workplace regime, modern tastes and diets along with a focus on sustainability and conscientious menus and supply partners. She will work with clients to develop catering propositions that reflect their new office needs while also helping the internal development of chefs and kitchen teams. Webber will also lead the creation and implementation of new concepts and collaborations from London’s emerging food and drink scene.

Webber has forged a highly respected career path in workplace catering and retail catering having held senior roles with Thomas Franks London, Vacherin and Lusso and most recently with her own consumer venture.

Speaking about her new role, Webber said: “I’m excited to bring my Aussie flare and holistic approach to the Bennett Hay business and feel that ethically we are aligned, which means honest, innovative and agile growth lay ahead.”

Robin Hay, founder of Bennett Hay commented: “We are thrilled to have Candice join us and we’re looking forward to her contribution to the company as we amplify our focus on food. She will bring another valuable voice and outlook to our leadership team and will play an important part in our growth and innovation plans for the years to come.”

Bennett Hay boasts contracts with some of London’s landmark workplaces due to its long-standing relationships with Landsec, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP and Savills.

Creating a positive visitor experience in a Hybrid world of work

While some personnel are finally returning to the office – the great majority of organisations (up to 83 per cent) anticipate a hybrid mix of on-premises and working from home to continue for the foreseeable future.

This means that when it comes to providing access to the workplace, where once it was simply enough to maintain a welcoming reception for visitors, organisations today must also keep a close eye on access permissions in real-time to keep buildings safe and secure while ensuring they comply with compliance.

Pitney Bowes Smart Access Management in association with FMJ has produced a new White Paper which explains how to create a welcoming, actively managed environment for authorised people.

It explains how new Smart Access Management™ (SAM) delivers a complete, real-time and data-driven view of all your people, visitors and contractors, to help give you greater control and visibility.
