Our Commitment

At Sodexo, we foster diversity, equity, and inclusion by respecting and understanding the needs of our clients, suppliers, consumers, and communities. 

We encourage our employees to bring their whole selves to work regardless of age, gender, nationality, culture or personal characteristics and we prioritize treating every individual with equal respect and fairness, recognizing their valuable contributions in shaping our identity. By living by our commitments and taking action against discrimination, and by inspiring other businesses and organisations to join the movement, we can contribute to a more open, fair and inclusive society.
