Brands’ dedication to cultivating unrivaled culture and talent, our organization attended The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management’s (CGSM) Annual Orientation Program and Career Forum. Our Finance, Human Resources, Marketing and Operations teams from throughout the organization were there to show support and meet with potential future talent.

Our commitment to attracting top talent and supporting organizations that share our values starts at the top and extends throughout Yum!. That’s why we’re proud to partner with CGSM, because of their commitment to diversity and inclusion and the importance of believing in all people.

Established in 1966, CGSM’s mission is to enhance diversity in business education and leadership by helping to reduce the serious underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in both the member schools’ enrollments and the ranks of management.

CGSM works to connect top-performing students in leading MBA programs to corporate partners around the country. The organization’s annual forum provides an opportunity for these students to engage with recruitment teams from some of the nation’s top corporations through speaker sessions, workshops and networking receptions.

Investing in Employee Development Fuels Unrivaled Culture and Talent http://www.yum.com/investing-in-employee-development-fuels-unrivaled-culture-and-talent/ http://www.yum.com/investing-in-employee-development-fuels-unrivaled-culture-and-talent/#respond Wed, 21 Jun 2017 13:48:20 +0000 http://www.yum.com/?p=5377 ... Read more »]]> At Yum!, we aim to unlock the true potential in all of our employees by investing in both their professional and personal development through our holistic performance management process called the Building People Capability (BPC) cycle.

The BPC cycle provides interactive and customized programs throughout the year that grow our people while supporting our mission to build the world’s most loved, trusted and fastest growing restaurant brands. In fact, one of our four growth drivers is to build Unrivaled Culture and Talent.

A great example of our BPC cycle in action is Grow Yourself Week at the corporate campus in Louisville, Kentucky. Grow Yourself Week is an opportunity for employees to focus on their individual development planning, which is a key step in the BPC cycle. Employees are able to take advantage of professional and personal development resources, gain perspective from and network with organizational leaders, and connect with fellow employees who share similar interests and goals.

We seek to make learning, training and career development opportunities accessible to as many of our employees as possible. Other development resources available to our employees include educational assistance programs, in-person and online learning courses, and mentoring programs, to name a few.

Yum! Brands Celebrates Culture of Diversity & Inclusion with Pride http://www.yum.com/yum-brands-celebrates-culture-of-diversity-inclusion-with-pride/ http://www.yum.com/yum-brands-celebrates-culture-of-diversity-inclusion-with-pride/#respond Mon, 19 Jun 2017 20:08:10 +0000 http://www.yum.com/?p=5374 ...

As a global restaurant company, we understand that diversity and inclusion are critical to the long-term success of our business – it’s part of the fabric of who we are as a company. We believe that the more our workforce reflects the global marketplace in which we operate, the more we will be able to satisfy our customers. In fact, one of our core values as a company is Believe in ALL People. This means seeing the value in each unique individual and unlocking their full potential to be their best, authentic self regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, age, gender or sexual orientation.

I’m proud of the commitment and progress we’re making across our organization and it starts at the top. In 2015, we established a diversity and inclusion council called Leading Inclusion for Tomorrow (LIFT). LIFT is chaired by our CEO and includes internal and external ambassadors who are challenged with driving global inclusion and engagement efforts across our company.  We also offer unconscious bias training to employees in order to increase multicultural competency and build stronger teams.

I’m particularly proud of our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) which play a key role driving our culture and providing networking, mentoring, educational and leadership development opportunities for our LGBTQ, multi-cultural, women and millennial corporate employee groups.

In support of Pride Month, one of our ERGs that I would like to recognize is the Yum! Pride Network (YPN) which connects and supports the LGBTQ community at our company. YPN offers employees opportunities for professional networking as well as personal development. YPN is both a champion for LGBTQ visibility within our company as well as an important resource for its members.

While we’ve made a lot of progress over the past few years through focused efforts such as LIFT and YPN, we also recognize that we’re on a journey and will continue working to get better and better when it comes to building a diverse and inclusive culture.
