NORMS Restaurants Wins "Best Practices Award" for Human Resources

NORMS Restaurants celebrates the new year, and it’s 70th Anniversary, by winning the Best Practices Award for Family Dining from TDn2K (Transforming Data into Knowledge) given for exceptional Human Resources practices at their annual Global Best Practices Conference in Dallas, TX. The event was held January 27 – 29th and honors best in class restaurant brands.

“These companies are leading the industry in their people practices, and their commitment to elevate the lives of their employees and their communities. They are real examples of truly balancing people and profits,” said Joni Doolin, CEO and co-founder of TDn2K.

Evaluation for the winner of this prestigious human resources award includes retention of general managers and hourly employees, workforce diversity and compensation practices, and their efforts in community involvement. In addition, consideration was given for corporate responsibility, employee foundations and sustainable business practices.

“NORMS Restaurants’ rich heritage from being in business for over 70 years and having an exceptional team is a testament to the strong guest experience we proudly deliver 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Amir Durrani, VP of Human Resources for NORMS. “Operating in a challenging environment with growing headwinds – while staying true to our legacy – prepares us to take on the future with greater confidence and resilience. On behalf of the 1800+ employees who help make us a great place to work and eat, we are grateful and honored to win the ‘Best Practices Award’ for 2019!”
