Is time an employee benefit? Moving on from 9 – 5 models, Neil shares KFC’s approach to work that supports both high performing colleagues and their wellbeing.
Neil explains how he aims to protect time, for colleagues to use it for them as a whole person, not just their role at work. From a virtual commute to “Leave me the cluck alone” time, Neil describes examples of how KFC puts this in to practice for colleagues to manage their work and wellbeing.
Neil also discusses KFC’s role in creating social mobility, and gives us a sneak peek into their pilot of a fantastic new programme, Hatch, that provides pre-employment training and support, creating a safe, calm and proactive path into employability.
