Westlife Development Ltd that owns and operates McDonald’s Restaurants in West and South India has come with a unique ‘Work From Home’ policy for its restaurant management teams and the frontline crew, who are unable to go to work due to the country-wide lock down to contain coronavirus outbreak.
The move is intended to keep the youth productively engaged in these unprecedented times and upskill them for a strong comeback as soon as normalcy resumes.
The food giant has adapted many of its classroom training modules digitally, and introduced e-learning modules, quizzes, masterclasses by managers and many more creative learning sessions, which employees can access on their digital devices including mobile.
This initiative is aimed to make sure that the team continues to learn and grow even while staying home.
The e-learning modules include McCafé masterclass, equipment masterclass and a number of development and orientation programs for employees across different positions in the restaurants, among others. The initiative is set to benefit nearly 10,000 employees.
The company has created a strong framework to support staffs through the process and track their progress on a regular basis. This has been enabled by the company’s strong digital capabilities that have been developed to support agility and innovation.
“At McDonald’s India, we are committed to the well-being and growth of our people. In these unprecedented times, we have created this unique program to make sure that our crew is empowered to use their time efficiently. Through this, we hope to keep our people engaged, connected and motivated, so they are able to come back to work better and stronger”, said Seema Arora Nambiar, Senior Vice President, Menu, Marketing and People Resources at McDonald’s India West and South
