Support At Difficult Times

We believe in supporting our people at difficult periods in their lives. The support we provide is hard to measure other than through personal stories, but we do have fundamentals in place such as pension provision, private healthcare, company sick pay (in addition to statutory sick pay), a compassionate leave policy, income protection and enhanced maternity pay.

KFC UK and Ireland is proud to partner with the Retail Trust, the principal charity for the retail sector which supports three million people. The Retail Trust provides a free, independent, confidential service to all our people, ranging from financial advice to domestic abuse counselling and retirement support. We advertise this service widely.

Unfortunately, we do sometimes need to provide support and counselling for employees following an unforeseeable event at work. For instance, when staff have been threatened during a robbery or receive abuse from customers, their colleagues have provided appropriate support alongside professional counselling where required.
