People are our most valuable resource.

Darden has grown to become one of the leading full-service restaurant companies in the world, providing approximately one million guest experiences every day.

While growth and strong operations are important, we strive to create social value by contributing to the success and well-being of the people whose lives we touch. We support and develop employees by giving them opportunities to excel through education, competitive pay, valuable benefits and room for growth. Darden creates thousands of jobs in hundreds of communities in the U.S. and Canada and provides charitable dollars and volunteers to support the issues important to each community, including postsecondary education, preservation of natural resources and hunger relief. Beyond our doors, Darden has leveraged strategic partnerships around the globe, enabling us to learn from others as well as teach what we have learned in order to drive large-scale change and multiply our social impact.
