In the first of the Accelerator series, we have a quick-fire case study on developing and engaging talent with Domino’s seven “pride” values. Rayyan Irwan is the operations training manager for L&D at Domino’s Pizza Malaysia and Singapore, partnering with front line staff and senior executives to sharpen their skills.

In sharing the seven values, Irwan takes an example: "If one of our riders is living the pride values, where they continually attend training and develop their communication skills, let's say, then the manager has a certificate to thank the employee for demonstrating the pride values."

He adds: "Every month in the management meeting, we display these - which creates a sense of recognition as well as competition. It also creates awareness on what the ride values are about."
