We are stepping up our investment in Yum!’s new social purpose to unlock opportunity in our people and communities, while championing equity, inclusion and belonging across all aspects of our brands and franchise business.
Unrivaled Culture & Talent
As the world’s largest restaurant company, our people are our biggest assets. From the restaurant to the corner office, investing in people with globally scalable development programs that benefit our restaurant general managers is at the center of our strategy to elevate the customer experience, unlock growth for our franchisees and make a difference in the world.
Yum! and our four brands are committed to uplifting people and communities. Over the past year, we have been refining and charting the course for our company’s social purpose, brought to life through our Unlocking Opportunity Initiative. Over the next five years, we’re investing $100 million to fight inequality with focus on three areas including equity and inclusion, education and skills and entrepreneurship.
Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
One of Yum!’s core values is to believe in all people. This value extends not only to our employees, but also to our franchisees, suppliers and customers. As our customer base becomes more diverse and multicultural, ensuring all people are represented at all levels of our organization will allow our brands to stay relevant and our employees to remain engaged.
Our brands have been giving back to their communities for decades, particularly in the areas of hunger relief, literacy and youth education. During 2020 and beyond, each of our brands also focused on assisting essential workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
