We couldn’t do what we do without our people. So whether it means offering opportunities, championing communities or finding time for flexibility, we do whatever we can to make working here as enjoyable as possible. Read on to find out more about what life at McDonald’s is really like.
What makes us a great place to work?
Being a great place to work means different things to different people. So we asked the people who work here what they liked about working at McDonald’s. Here’s what they had to say.
We pride ourselves in recognising the dedication of hardworking employees in our restaurants, and we celebrate their commitment to the McDonald’s brand every year – through two prestigious awards.
The national Employee of the Year award rewards the most talented crew members, such as Curtis, who was chosen from over 135,000 employees to be named the winner in 2019. We also congratulate our high performing leaders at The Ray Kroc Awards, an annual prize that recognises outstanding restaurant managers and celebrates their achievements on an international stage.
As a modern, progressive, responsible company, we believe in making a positive difference in society – from the way we source our menu ingredients, to the support we give.
Making Grassroots Football Better
Since teaming up with The FA, we’ve helped keep kids active and supported the nation’s passion for the beautiful game via the UK grassroots football Better Play programme, which has seen over 7,000 clubs achieve accreditation, provided over 175,000 new kits and benefitted over 4 million children.
Supporting Families with RMHC
RMHC has been our charity of choice since it was founded in 1989, providing free accommodation near hospitals across the UK for the families of sick children. In 2014, McDonald’s restaurants raised over £4.2 million for RMHC through sales and in-store collection boxes.
Follow Our Foodsteps
We launched a nationwide campaign that uses pioneering virtual reality and 360° videos to tell the McDonald’s food story through the eyes of the people who grow, produce and prepare food for our UK menu.
We have an obligation to give something back to the community that gives so much to us.
