Responding to COVID-19 Together
Yum! Brands expands efforts to support restaurant general managers and employees across the globe impacted by COVID-19
Category: Supporting employees
As recognition for the vital role that our Restaurant General Mangers (RGMs) play in inspiring and leading successful restaurant teams, Yum! Brands has announced a one-time $1,000 bonus for nearly 1,200 RGMs at company-owned KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and The Habit Burger Grill restaurants around the world.
As the most important leaders in our brands who lead with heart and courage to ensure the health and safety of team members, customers and restaurants, RGMs are critical to getting our company through the COVID-19 crisis. This bonus is intended to acknowledge their efforts managing teams and maintaining business continuity during these challenging times.
In addition, Yum! Brands Foundation recently launched a Global Employee Medical Relief Fund to provide financial support for restaurant employees at company and franchise-owned stores who are diagnosed with or who are caring for someone diagnosed with COVID-19. Today, Yum! Brands announced it is directing additional money toward the Fund to help employees and franchise associates during this difficult time. Yum! and brand employees and others can also donate to the Fund by going to www.yum.com/giverelief. Any funds that are raised that aren’t allocated to restaurant team members will be used to support other front-line workers and those facing food insecurity.
