Sodexo’s induction into the Hall of Fame affirms our long-standing dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion. But our work — and the work of so many other companies — is more than the right thing to do, it is necessary for growth. Incorporating Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts enables us to fulfill our quality-of-life mission and show up as a good corporate citizen. More importantly, bringing forward diverse backgrounds and perspectives feeds our strategy and fuels our creativity. Our focus on DEI allows us to serve our clients, consumers and the communities we serve on a deeper level.

As the new Global Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer for Sodexo, I am committed to further embedding Sodexo’s diversity, equity and inclusion practices throughout the organization. The Hall of Fame achievement signifies the importance that Sodexo places on our DEI efforts as a driver of business performance. This becomes possible when leaders advocate for and create an inclusive environment where all employees can reach their potential and thrive.

From the Company

Over the past two decades, Sodexo has committed to attracting, developing, engaging, advancing and retaining a high-performing workforce that reflects the diverse communities we serve. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) strategy focuses on ensuring Inclusive Leadership in action throughout the organization; increasing gender and ethnicity awareness and equity; and engaging stakeholders to bring DEI to frontline employees.

In 2020, we were recognized by external organizations with more than 25 DEI accolades, including Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index and Fortune’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” list.

Sodexo’s mission has always been to improve the quality of life of our employees and the communities we serve. Our commitment to DEI is grounded in our corporate responsibility roadmap, which contributes to societal and economic development and enriches the lives of our constituents.

We strive to provide all employees with a positive workplace experience. Investment in DEI is an investment in the growth of our employees and our business.
