The KFC Foundation recently received the Brandon Hall Group’s Gold award in the “Excellence of Learning Category for HCM Citizenship” for Educational Support at KFC.

The Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards is the most prestigious awards program in the learning industry, attracting entrants from leading global corporations including Google, IBM, Boeing, Dell and others.

The HCM Citizenship category honors organizations that go beyond employee training and create pathways to meaningful employment for their workforce and/or their community. According to the Brandon Hall Group, the KFC Foundation’s comprehensive scope of employee assistance offerings is what made the organization’s award entry a stand-out:

“KFC and most of its U.S. franchisees have made a commitment to frontline restaurant workers through the independent, non-profit KFC Foundation to provide enhanced educational and hardship assistance benefits. One program helps workers pay for college and the other offers free, personal GED completion support. This, coupled with providing additional support to restaurant employees through their hardship assistance program and forthcoming financial literacy initiative, earned KFC a Gold Award for HCM Citizenship in the 2017 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards.”
