Fundamentals

Sodexo is the community of its clients, consumers, employees and shareholders. We recognise that the best way to respond to the expectations of all of our stakeholders is through steady growth. We also believe it is important that our work is meaningful to all who contribute to it and thus we remain faithful to our mission, our core values and the ethical principles that have guided us since 1966.

Every day, our 420,000 employees across the world work together to:

  • Improve the Quality of Life of all those we serve. We strive to design On-site Services and Benefits and Rewards Services (formerly Motivation Solutions) that improve people’s wellbeing, process efficiency and infrastructure reliability and quality. We are also gradually introducing Personal & Home Services.

  • Contribute to the economic, social and environmental development of the cities, regions and countries where we operate. We demonstrate this commitment every day by employing tens of thousands of people locally at our sites worldwide and contributing to their fulfillment and career development. 

    In order to live up to our mission, we have designed a sustainability strategy to 2020, the Better Tomorrow Plan. Launched in 2009, the Better Tomorrow Plan is based on three pillars and commitments for action in five focus areas to be a responsible employer, improve health and wellbeing, support local community development, develop sustainable supply chains and improve environmental management.
