Quamrul Mullah is a Restaurant General Manager who took advantage of our tuition reimbursement program. We caught up with Quamrul to learn how the program helped further his education:
- What are your educational passions and goals outside of the restaurant?
Helping others is my passion. I believe life is not just about being happy, but being useful, compassionate, and making a difference. Outside of the restaurant, my educational goal is to become a better mindful learner. Being mindful allows flexible thinking with different possibilities in every situation.
- Why did you decide to leverage the tuition reimbursement program?
At DRG, the executive management team is very uplifting to each and everyone in the company. They create a caring culture and we move together. I decided to enroll in school to learn and work on my leadership skills so I can be more productive and innovative at work. Since the Tuition Assistance program is available, I thought the program would be helpful to me.
- How did the program help support you, or make you feel supported?
Tuition for school is very expensive. This program helped me pay my tuition fees and expenses. By reducing financial concerns, I have more time for studying and learning. This program is a savior for me.
- What’s your current role and title with DRG?
I’m a Restaurant General Manager, currently in a stretch assignment to oversee three locations. The lessons I have learned at the Organizational Leadership program have been invaluable and eye-opening. I want to bring out some of the skills I learned including visionary leadership, effective change-making and strategic planning to the managers for outstanding operation excellence.
