Creating a transparent, compliant and resilient supply chain – diversity as a key enabler for success

On International Women’s Day 2023, FMJ is teaming up with Alcumus, leaders in supply chain compliance, and their client Sodexo, world leader in catering and facilities management, to explore how FM professionals can deliver unique value to existing and prospective clients by creating a diverse and inclusive supply chain to help drive resilience and compliance.

According to research, 92 per cent of consumers are more likely to trust a company that supports social or environmental issues while 58 per cent of employees consider a company’s social and environmental commitments when deciding where to work.

Compliance has been a long-standing requirement in the FM world but today this applies to more than keeping building occupants safe. It’s about ensuring the delivery of high-performing workplaces via a transparent, compliant, and resilient supply chain, whilst also considering the impact on society and the environment. For FMs to meet emerging ESG goals an essential and crucial element is in evaluating, monitoring, and managing their supply chain.

Ensuring the inclusion and effective management of diverse suppliers in the supply chain is not just the right thing to do but is also hugely beneficial to organisations.

We’ll explore how Alcumus and Sodexo are working in partnership to deliver supplier chain compliance for Sodexo, and why they are both so passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion beyond the workplace and into the supply chain.

  • Sara Bean – FMJ (moderator)

  • Gemma Lynch – SVP of Strategic Accounts, Alcumus Supply Chain Compliance
