The Rethreaded toffee kitchen is a production environment with clear procedures, codes to observe, and repetitive tasks. With many batches of toffee to make every day, it would be natural to assume the pace is fast and demanding. While that may be true in other similar environments, Rethreaded’s kitchen couldn’t be more different.
Instead, Lisa, Rethreaded’s kitchen manager, emphasizes a constant, steady pace that focuses more on the journey than on results. Consistently exhibiting the right behaviors, with a healthy mindset, produces the same outcome, but with greater purpose and without the stress.
The kitchen culture is also driven by vision. Making delicious toffee is a means to the end of creating space for more survivors to come and find purpose. Each batch is made with joy, offering freedom and a consistent focus on the purpose of the work, which helps to bring about consistent joy, laughter, and motivation.
