At Yum!, we are truly proud of the unique culture we've built, one that's filled with energy, opportunity and fun. We believe in our people, trust in their positive intentions, encourage ideas from everyone, and have actively developed a workforce that is diverse in style and background. Yum! is a place where anyone can, and does, make a difference.
This commitment to people extends to the communities we serve across the world. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is central to our ability to succeed in the marketplace and to be a positive, responsible corporate citizen. We are actively working to align our CSR actions globally to drive industry-leading, long-term shareholder and franchisee value by operating as a responsible corporate citizen around the world. To this end, we recently adopted a global CSR framework to align and drive commitments in four categories: our food, our people, our community and our environment.
Because we're the largest restaurant company in the world and we're passionate about helping people better themselves and their communities, we're working to address these priorities:
- The health and nutritional needs of our customers
- Feeding the world's hungry
- Being responsible and intentional in our actions toward the sustainability of the environment and agricultural resources on which our business depends
- Building people capability in our associates around the world
We invite you to read our updated Corporate Social Responsibility report. This report highlights the efforts our global brands are making to be socially responsible companies and outlines the commitments we are making going forward.
