The Great Place to Work® award recognizes fair treatment of employees and an inclusive environment that supports employees and creates a great place to work.
The fast food leader recognizes the importance of employee satisfaction and places it on the same level as consumer satisfaction. It does this by creating a work environment that promotes cultural diversity, inclusion, collaboration and engagement. More than 5,000 team members benefit from this orientation.
Recognition as a ‘Great Place to Work’ was achieved through an anonymous employee survey by the organiser’s ‘Trust Index©’. This comprehensive survey covered management, work culture, employee engagement and job satisfaction and also took into account the results of a management questionnaire – the Culture Brief©.
