US-based fast food chain KFC is planning to double the number of female employees at its restaurants in India in the next 3-4 years, reinforcing its commitment towards gender parity in the South Asian nation, sources said.
KFC India is reportedly planning to enhance the overall ratio of women employees to 40% by the year 2024 from the current 30% under its ‘KFC Kshamata’ programme.
“On gender diversity, it has grown very organically. It is not like we were going out and trying to make a very loud exercise. Between 2013-14 and pre-Covid, in those five or six years diversity in our restaurants, from a gender perspective, has grown from 7-8 per cent to around 30 per cent…that included both team members and leaders of restaurants,” KFC India Managing Director Samir Menon told PTI.
