Social Value - People

Our people

We create employment opportunities through apprenticeships and provide employees with access to services that support their health and wellbeing needs.  Our strategy promotes social mobility across our business, and supports groups who need help to secure suitable employment that could kickstart their career, helping them take the first step to long-term rehabilitation.

These activities will support our journey to Net Zero by 2040, not only at Sodexo but in partnership with our clients and supply chain. We're also increasing the take up of sustainable diet options and removing unrecylable plastics.
