Culture

At Darden, every team member matters and owns a stake in our success.

Our People = Our Success

Our team members are what make the difference at Darden — they are at the heart of everything we do. We know we’re only as good as our people. That’s why we hire the best and create an inclusive environment where diversity of thought and background are valued, everyone is treated with respect and everyone has opportunities to develop and grow their careers.

We’re extremely proud of our results-oriented, people culture — one filled with energy, passion, opportunity and fun. We work hard to achieve our goals, and we all win together when we do. 

Our Success = Opportunity for Our People

At Darden, we only succeed when our people succeed. That’s why who we hire is one of our most important decisions, and why we invest in our team members’ careers every step of the way.
 
We provide our people with the tools they need to succeed in their current roles, to grow personally and professionally and to deliver exceptional experiences to our guests each day:
  • Enriching professional experiences
  • Everyday coaching and timely, productive feedback
  • High-quality learning and development opportunities
