McDonald’s inks partnership with Pasig City for hiring of senior citizens, PWDs
In its bid to further promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace, McDonald’s Philippines is committed to growing its alternative workforce by hiring at least two senior citizens and one PWD in 10 participating stores in the city. The partnership will afford the beneficiaries the opportunity to earn while learning new skills, providing them the same world-class training which the company extends to all its directly hired employees. Aside from the training program, approved by the Public Employment Service Office of Pasig and the Department of Labor and Employment, qualified applicants will be entitled to a regular employee’s compensation, benefits, and a life insurance policy to be secured by the company. “We are excited to have more senior citizens and PWDs assist in serving our customers as we have witnessed their potential, capabilities, and commitment in providing great customer service,” McDonald’s Philippines President and CEO Kenneth Yang said. “To date, we have over 60 senior citizens employed in different restaurants in Manila and as we welcome our Pasigeño senior citizens and PWDs, we look forward to expanding the alternative workforce and roll it out to more cities,” he added.
