We understand that in order to encourage superior performance from our team members, we must create and maintain a compelling place to work – a place where people can grow and learn enduring life skills. Our goal is to make working at Darden more than just a job. Developing our people is a cornerstone of our business model, and we’re proud of the fact that:
We promote nearly 1,000 team members a year into management;
More than half of all our restaurant managers come from our hourly ranks; and
Ninety-nine percent of all our restaurant General Managers/Managing Partners – the most important position in our company – are promoted from within.
