When creating Sodexo in 1966, we made two major choices that are still the pillars of our strategy: Sodexo is and will remain a services company, Sodexo is and will remain an independent company.


Convinced that the services sector would grow faster than the primary and secondary sectors, we have chosen to develop the services that match our mission: Sodexo has become the world leader in Quality of Life services. Our three activities contribute to improving the Quality of Life.

On-site Services

From foodservices to construction management, reception services to the maintenance of scanners and laboratory equipment, technical maintenance to leisure cruises, and housekeeping to rehabilitation services at correctional facilities... Sodexo provides clients with a wide array of on-site services.

Benefits & Rewards Services

Sodexo is the partner of private and public organizations for which it designs and implements tailored solutions in three service categories:

  • Employee Benefits to attract, engage and retain employees (such as restaurant and transport vouchers),

  • Incentives and Recognition to help organizations reach their qualitative and quantitative objectives (gift vouchers...),

  • Public Benefits to manage and control the distribution of aid and public subsidies.

Personal & Home Services

Sodexo creates and deploys services that improve the Quality of Life in three categories of services: childcare, concierge services and home care for dependent persons.

The significant synergies between these activities contribute to Sodexo’s growth.


This first international study shows that decision makers recognize a link between improving Quality of Life and performance. It goes even further, to identify the specific business outcomes (such as image and reputation, business, financial performance and organizational efficiency).
