HR consultancy Aon claims smoking ban offers opportunity for bar owners to train staff in wine tasting

Your local boozer might turn into a sophisticated wine bar once the smoking ban comes into effect on 1 July.

HR consultancy Aon said there was an opportunity for savvy bar owners to train staff in how to pick out a crisp Pinot Grigio or recommend the best English vintage to please a new set of customers coming into smoke-free pubs.

More than seven in 10 wine drinkers already consume wine in pubs – so Aon recommended wine tastings for the team, training booklets on under-age drinking, and partnering new recruits with experienced staff, so they can learn on the job.
