Diversity - a business necessity

At Sodexo, we strive to challenge stereotypes. We encourage an organisational culture that embraces differences and celebrates unique ideas, perspectives, experiences and talents. We value all differences and provide equal employment opportunities based on skills and competence not race, gender or preferences

Our culturally diverse teams are key to accommodating social diversity and making everyone feel welcomed and “at home, while away from home” especially on our remote sites.

 

We have a strong commitment to Indigenous employment as part of our Reconciliation Action Plan to close the gap on Indigenous disadvantage. We have successfully provided career progression as up skilled Indigenous staff are able to move onto further opportunities without leaving their community or country.
