More high-level professionals than ever are being tempted into and rewarded by careers at McDonald's, with the fast-food chain now receiving two prestigious awards for its recruitment and staffing practices.
The restaurant chain employs around 67,000 people in the UK today, and the famous fast-food vendor was voted as the overall winner of Caterer and Hotelkeeper's Best Place to Work in Hospitality Awards, gaining rich praise for its tangible rewards programme, a recruitment policy based on attitude rather than experience and a strong range of staff benefits.
Further, in the DWF Employer Awards, McDonald's then scooped the prize for Excellence in HR though Technology, the law firm recognising its innovative Our Lounge website, which offers staff a series of learning and training opportunities.
Presenting the award, DWF managing partner Andrew Leaitherland described Our Lounge as "groundbreaking" in its efforts at "developing employees' skills and confidence".
Graduate careers at McDonald's have come with high praise from several quarters in recent years, and the company were recently voted on to the Times' Top 100 Graduate Employer list for the seventh consecutive year.
