Sodexo Wins Two Awards for Employee Engagement Excellence to Drive Sustainability
August 12, 2018
Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life services, was the winner of the Sustainable Business Awards 2018 (Workforce Category) and “Asia’s Best Employer Brand” by the Employer Branding Institute.
These recognitions are a firm nod to Sodexo’s corporate responsibility roadmap Better Tomorrow 2025, which outlines clear targets for enhancing Quality of Life of employees, workforce diversity and inclusion and other positive changes in communities Sodexo operates in.
The Sustainable Business Awards is one of the region’s leading sustainable awards platform, recognising outstanding leadership in sustainable business practices. The award affirms Sodexo’s employee engagement initiatives in the sustainability realm, including:
- The Annual Better Tomorrow Survey to engage meaningfully with teams, shape Sodexo’s sustainability agenda and define new actions
- The “Sodexo Supports Me” hotline for employees and immediate family members to receive free and confidential counselling. This is part of Sodexo’s mission to improve Quality of Life and achieve “zero harm” at the workplace
Meanwhile, the title of “Asia’s Best Employer Brand” recognises the outstanding use of marketing communications to support talent acquisition and development.
The effort is most apparent in Sodexo’s ongoing work to increase women representation in leadership to 40% by 2025; and in the company’s annual Global Chef Program, which sends top performing chefs on a cultural exchange to different Sodexo sites around the world.
