Building an Amazing Place to Work
We know that our success stems from our exceptional team of more than 35,000 managers and staff members in our restaurants, bakery facilities and corporate support center. In 2016 we were proud to be named one of the FORTUNE "100 Best Companies to Work For®" for the third consecutive year! We know that our sustainability commitment and programs played a big part in awarding us this honor. To help us further our sustainability commitment and better our engagement with staff members and our communities, we dedicate resources to our Sustainability Department. Leading us in this effort is Megan Bloomer, our Director of Sustainability. Ms. Bloomer comes to us with a diverse background, including a Fortune 500 company, where she led the efforts to manage environmental impact and increase stewardship and overall sustainability. Now that Ms. Bloomer leads our Sustainability Department, her focus areas in 2016 include development and training of system-wide energy and water conservation programs and the creation and implementation of a sustainable sourcing policy focused around holistic animal welfare and social justice practices.
