Restaurant Brands has a committed and competent workforce of around 6,000 employees across New Zealand & Australia.
The company recognises the importance of training its people. It provides qualifications in food safety which are well recognised in the industry. And, as always, employee safety is paramount, with the company having put in place strong injury prevention, safety awareness and active rehabilitation initiatives.
As an employer, Restaurant Brands strives to develop and nurture talent and ambition. There are young managers of 21-22 years of age, with the right training, who can manage stores turning over $3million a year with assets of over $2million and a staff of over 20 reporting to them.
More than 300 of the company’s managers have been developed through the store management training programme. This training is rigorous and exacting, and combines study with practical training and support, assisted by regional management and assessors up and down the country. Every one of these managers can count themselves among the best in the industry.
It doesn’t matter where a young employee starts out – cooking chicken, waiting tables or making coffee – if they have what it takes they are offered excellent career opportunities. The company’s area management have predominantly risen through the ranks, with our strong emphasis on growing from within.
By nurturing the right talent for the right roles and offering people a valuable career path, Restaurant Brands have secured the commitment of these people in return. They go the extra mile for their staff and their customers, and they care about their business. And that’s good for business.
