HYPE Presents: 35 Under 35 — Haley Janke

KFCOur People, Social ImpactJanuary 05, 2022

HYPE (Hungry Young Professionals Engaging) is an ERG based in the Lousiville, Kentucky campus. They recently launched their 35 under 35 campaign which aims to highlight 35 young professionals from now until the end of the year who are making a difference in our company and practicing allyship. Learn more about Haley, Digital Customer Experience Manager, below:


What is a recent achievement you wish to share? 

One of my proudest achievements with KFC was being a part of the team that successfully launched our first global ecommerce platform. This project was a massive undertaking that required collaboration across multiple functions, markets, time zones, and partners, but we finally made it across the finish line in September of 2021! This new ecommerce experience will allow us to move more quickly to keep up with (and exceed!) our customers’ expectations. I’m so excited to see how this platform continues to evolve over time and make the ordering experience even better for our customers around the world.

How are you an ally/practicing allyship for an underrepresented community? 

My allyship journey is a constant work in progress as I believe there is always room for improvement and self growth in this space. With that in mind, I consistently make an effort to learn from and listen to others around me who have different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives than my own. I enter conversations and relationships with an open mind and commit to creating a safe space for those around me.

What's a company/organization you think is making an impact for growth and good? 

Not to be biased or anything :) , but I really believe KFC has made amazing strides in this space both domestically and abroad. I am proud to work for an organization that values the positive impact it can have on the world and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

What is your career aspiration/goal? Do you have a "dream position"?

This is a tough one! Does anyone ever REALLY know what they want to be when they grow up? But in all honesty, I truly enjoy working at the intersection of technology and the customer experience. Working on the platforms that enable and enhance how our customers interact with our brand is an exciting and fulfilling role. I have also been lucky to work with and learn from many of our international market teams, and love seeing how collaboration and know-how can move across teams and continents.

What is your favorite menu item from any of our brands (it's ok if it's not your brand)
