Sodexo Recognises Long Service
October 30, 2012
Over 120 Sodexo employees from across the UK and Ireland were recently taken on an all-day trip around some of London’s iconic attractions in recognition of their 20, 30 or 40 years service with the leading provider of on-site service solutions.
Recipients of the long service award attended an afternoon tea cruise on-board Bateaux London’s Symphony, the city’s largest restaurant cruise vessel. During the cruise, which took in the famous sites of London, each recipient was personally congratulated by Sodexo’s chief executive Debbie White.
Following the cruise all recipients took a trip on the London Eye before having a celebratory dinner at Madame
Tussauds, where a live band played and they were presented with their chosen gift in recognition of their service.
Sodexo chief executive Debbie White said: “People are at the heart of Sodexo. Our business relies on tens of thousands of talented individuals who provide our customers and clients with exceptional service. This annual event is a great opportunity to show our appreciation and to show just how much we value and appreciate all the hard work, dedication, and loyalty our employees have shown over the years.”
In the UK and Ireland, Sodexo employs 35,000 employees, and provides catering and a range of facilities management services to clients at over 2,300 locations in the business and industry, education, healthcare, leisure and defence sectors.
