Chick-fil-A, Inc. Sr. Lead Advisor, Communications Specialist in Atlanta, Georgia

With a mission to “nourish the communities we serve for a better world,” Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts at Chick-fil-A are focused in four pillars: people, communities, food and planet. Inspired by our founder S. Truett Cathy’s legacy of care, Chick-fil-A strives to cultivate a positive work environment where people feel known and cared for. We seek to have a positive impact in our communities by strengthening the cities and neighborhoods we serve. We focus on creating a meaningful customer experience by serving great food people can feel good about. And we work to sustain a happy, healthy future by acting as good stewards of the planet we share.
