Canada NewsWire

BURLINGTON, ON, March 2, 2018

BURLINGTON, ON, March 2, 2018 /CNW/ - For the fifth consecutive year, Sodexo Canada has been named one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers by Mediacorp. The company believes that Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is a market differentiator and this commitment is a fundamental component of its growth strategy.

Sodexo is one of the most diverse companies in the world with key indicators above the Canadian national standard. At Sodexo Canada:

  • over 65% of employees are women
  • 33% are visible minorities
  • 5.5% are Indigenous
  • 3.2% have a disability
  • 87% of Sodexo's Canadian management teams are gender balanced.

"Diversity and Inclusion is not a destination. It's a journey. And we're on the right track," says Barry Telford, President, Sodexo Canada. "Through our D&I initiatives, we are able to attract very forward-looking individuals. This kind of talent gives us a competitive advantage."

Sodexo's progressive D&I culture extends beyond its workforce and community partnerships, and into its supply chain. Sodexo Canada works with:

  • 200 small and medium sized enterprises
  • 84 Indigenous suppliers
  • 24 women-owned businesses.

Sodexo Canada's commitment to D&I helps position it as an employer and business partner of choice. Employees have various opportunities to foster an inclusive work culture by participating in Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs). They provide a forum for professional development and sharing of best practices. The EBRGs represent each of the six dimensions of diversity including: ADEPT (All Employees with Disabilities Posses Talent); NAAC (Native American and Aboriginal Council); SAGE (Sharing Across Generations); PRIDE; WiLL (Women in Leadership & Learning); and Cultural Diversity.
