Earlier this summer KFC Canada took a full day to say thanks to restaurant team members during in-restaurant celebrations.
On June 26th, 630 restaurants across Canada participated in National Crew Day, with 52 of those locations also hosting Restaurant Support Center associates, suppliers and franchisees for the festivities.
“National Crew Day is a day of recognition for all Restaurant General Managers and team members for everything they do every shift for our valued customers,” said Sheri Bednar, Franchise Operations Specialist, KFC Canada.
Employers – you’ve made the commitment to hire; you’re plugged into a service like VetsBridge which has provided you with connections to post-military veteran talent; and you’re ready to start the interview process. As you approach the interviews, you begin to outline questions for the candidate and realize you’re unsure if you should approach this differently than you would with a civilian interview. You begin to wonder if the veteran has PTSD. You’re also curious why they left the service; could they have been booted out?
At Goldcorp, we are committed to integrating respect for human rights into our business management processes throughout the company.
In an effort to strengthen our commitment to respect human rights and in line with the implementation of the Conflict-Free Gold Standard in 2013, we recognized that it would be imperative to offer training and support across our sites. One key aspect of the training offered to personnel was on human rights – particularly on best practices in human rights and security.
The Day of Remembrance marked a turning point in our safety culture. Although our annual All Injury Frequency Rate (AIFR) for 2013 was unchanged from 2012, that does not tell the story for the year. Over the first three quarters of 2013, the AIFR rose steadily to 1.95. Then, after the Day of Remembrance, and the implementation of several key safety initiatives, the AIFR dropped steeply, to 1.36 for the fourth quarter. We strongly believe that the awareness and new initiatives were critical factors.
At Goldcorp, we recognize the value of empowering our employees through continuous education. One special program developed with this in mind is the literacy program at Marlin in Guatemala. The training was the result of a project for the Supervisory Leadership Development Program (SLDP). In 2010, Oziel Orozco, an SLDP student, saw the opportunity to create a program that would fulfill a need in a country where the literacy rate for adults is 76%. This kicked off Marlin’s literacy program, which now provides training in reading and writing to employees from the local communities.
