This is the first time Arby’s has been named to the list and follows Arby’s recent announcement of being named by FORTUNE as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials.
“We’ve worked hard to build a culture that’s centered on hospitality and innovation,” says Paul Brown, chief executive officer of ARG. “We strive to promote values like Make a Difference, Play Fair, and Dream Big, which helps to create a work environment that is equitable and inclusive to all of our diverse workforce.”
Today, ARG’s workforce of 25,000 team members is 60 percent women. The company’s Product Innovation, Human Resources, and Information Technology functions are each led by women executives.
