Jollibee Group and the Manila LGU form a new partnership to provide PWDs and senior citizens with employment opportunities

“We started this program in 2019 with the Manila LGU. Working on this program in the past few years have allowed us to see how our elderly and differently abled individuals have appreciated the opportunity find gainful employment. The Jollibee Group continues to support this initiative of the Manila LGU, and we have been very fortunate to have a partner that shares the same desire and passion as the company in looking after the interest of our elderly and PWDs. We look forward to forging more partnerships with other LGUs so we can improve more lives and find reliable staff who can join us in our mission to share the joy of eating with everyone.” ~Ruth Angeles, Jollibee Group Vice President and Head for Human Resources-Philippines and Global Organization, Leadership & Culture
Fostering Inclusivity and Diversity at Work. Jollibee Group and Manila LGU officials convened anew for the signing of a new memorandum of agreement that will create employment opportunities for senior citizens and persons with disabilities in Jollibee-owned stores across Manila City. 

The Jollibee Group recently announced the resumption of its inclusive employment program to hire seniors and people with disabilities (PWD) in Manila after renewing its partnership with the Manila city government.
The partnership is in line with Jollibee Group's commitment to provide equal employment opportunities to workers in diverse industries and to promote and practice inclusivity and diversity in the workplace.
Jollibee Group will hire 28 seniors and 17 PWDs as customer service representatives at Jollibee, Chowking, Greenwich, and Burger King locations in Manila through the city's Public Employment Service Office (PESO). Manila PESO will conduct a screening process to identify candidates who meet the requirements prior to endorsing candidates for the position. Additionally, applicants must obtain a medical clearance from the program's accredited hospital, the Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center.

Honey Lacuna-Pangan, Yul Servo Nieto, Vice Mayor, and Atty. On January 31, the new memorandum of agreement was signed with the Mayor's Secretary present. In addition to Jollibee Group representatives and the Public Affairs AVP Atty, Marlon Lacson was present. Anna Prado is Raul Academia and the Philippine Region's director of human resources.
The Manila Department of Social Welfare and the Office of Senior Citizen's Affairs can provide interested applicants with additional information about this employment program.
In 2019, Jollibee Group became the first restaurant chain in the Philippines to work with the Manila Local Government Unit (LGU) to hire over 100 seniors and people with disabilities who were qualified in the 39 Jollibee, Chowking, Mang Inasal, and Greenwich locations in Manila. In 2019, Jollibee Group collaborated with the local governments of Antipolo and Pasay to implement the same inclusive employment program outside of Manila.
