McDonald's named presenting partner of London 2012 Volunteer Programme

Up to 70,000 volunteers will lend their time, energy and expertise to make London 2012 a success. Last month, McDonald's was named Presenting Partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games Maker Programme. According to the information provided, this is the first time in the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games that an organising committee has looked to sponsors to support the volunteers for this once in a lifetime experience.

As Presenting Partner, McDonald's will use its expertise in customer service and people development, as well as its nationwide presence, to help attract, select and train the diverse team of volunteers, known as Games Makers, that will be needed for the London 2012 Games. This will include providing training staff, materials and facilities to help attract and train volunteers. McDonald's will also use its 1,200 restaurants in communities across the UK to spread the message and attract volunteers from all walks of life and every corner of the UK.

McDonald's UK and Northern Europe CEO and President Steve Easterbrook said: “We value our people above everything else in our business, and it is our ambition to ensure that the Olympic and Paralympics volunteers are also highly valued, recognised and celebrated for their efforts and achievements. While nothing quite compares to the bustle and excitement of an action-packed 2012 Games, our employees know a fair bit about working in a fast-paced, busy environment - providing quick and consistent customer service to over two million people each day. We are proud to use this experience to help prepare the volunteers for the unique experience of London 2012 - providing them with the skills and confidence to deliver an outstanding Olympic and Paralympics Games that leaves an enduring volunteering legacy for years to come.” (kbp)
