The article reports on the move of Carlsberg to shut its entire Leeds brewery for one day for staff to be given additional training. The move was designed to give health and safety advice to 170 staff at the Danish lager firm, update them on new technology and hold wellness and personal development sessions. The day was an opportunity to promote Carlsberg's new learning centre, where staff can pursue courses in numeracy, literacy and basic information technology (IT) skills.
