Hardcastle Restaurants (HRPL), a Master Franchisee for West & South India operations of McDonald’s restaurants and a subsidiary of the Westlife Development, has introduced a unique ‘Work From Home’ policy for its restaurant management teams and the frontline crew, who are unable to go to work due to the nation-wide lock down. The move is intended to keep the youth of the country productively engaged in these unprecedented times and upskill them for a strong comeback as soon as normalcy resumes.
The company has adapted many of its classrooms training modules digitally, and introduced e-learning modules, quizzes, masterclasses by managers and many more creative learning sessions, which employees can access on their phone while in quarantine at home. This initiative by the company is aimed to make sure that the team continues to learn and grow even when they are staying home.
Westlife Development focuses on putting up and operating Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) in India through its subsidiary HRPL. The Company operates a chain of McDonald’s restaurants in west and south India, having a master franchisee relationship with McDonald’s Corporation USA, through the latter’s Indian subsidiary.
