Restaurant chain Chipotle — known for its burritos and, unfortunately, for poisoning a large number of its customers in 2015 — did something extraordinary earlier this month when it comes to human resources.


It closed every one of its restaurants across the United States on Feb. 8 for four hours and held mandatory staff training to talk about food safety. More than 50,000 employees gathered in 400 locations across the country to learn about changes the company made in the wake of high-profile incidents that saw sales tank in the fourth quarter of 2015.
