McDonald's wins Caterer's Best Places to Work award

McDonald's was last night crowned as Caterer's Best Place to Work in Hospitality in 2007.

The fast-food restaurant beat off strong competition from other individual award winners including Malmaison Hotel du Vin, Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Ego Restaurants to take the overall prize.

McDonald's, who received the award from Caterer editor Mark Lewis and Steve Di Piazza, managing director at sponsor The People Tree, takes the mantle from last year's joint overall winners, La Tasca and Betty's and Taylors Harrogate.

David Fairhurst, vice-president (people) at McDonald's, said: "I am thrilled that McDonald's has been recognised in this way, because when you think about what makes a really great workplace it boils down to just three things.

"First and foremost it's people. Secondly it's a company that values and respects its people. And finally it's time. Being one of the best places to work in any sector doesn't happen overnight. For over 30 years in the UK, McDonald's has employed great people and invested in those people."

Caterer's Best Places to Work in Hospitality award was launched last year.
