Good Catering Staff are taken for granted. We have some of the best in the business and many of our staff have worked for Elizabethan Catering Services Ltd., in excess of 10 years. This is an exception in itself. How many staff will be at your event. It is a frequently asked question? As a rule of thumb, we will have a ratio of 1 staff person for every 30 guests, plus a supervisor. Extra staff are added as required ie. Head Table Server(s), Bartenders, Wine Stewards, Chefs, etc. These ratios do change for certain events.
We pay our staff above average wages and overtime, in accordance with the Labour Laws of Alberta. We do not pay them “under the table”. They are professional catering staff who take pride in their formal attire, appearance and the service they provide you. We are always on the lookout for more “stars”. See our careers section.
The boom in Alberta has been as hard on the labor market, and our company is no different. Our key staff has remained relatively unchanged with those staff remaining loyal, but the casual helpers have been harder to find, but we are very aggressive in our personnel department to ensure that you event will run smoothly.
We are very proud of our wonderful staff who go into battle for us, sometimes in an extremely demanding environment. Please see our key staff list in “About Us – Our Team”.
