Sodexo’s UK & Ireland Diversity and Inclusion team has been highly commended in the enei awards’ Team of the Year category.
The Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (enei) Awards are an annual recognition of employers who challenge discrimination and work inclusively with their employees.
The team were commended for delivering outstanding levels of change across the business, including:
- Achieving a score of 79 per cent in an engagement survey where employees felt the company values diversity in the workplace, 14 per cent above external benchmark
- Being a founding member of the LGBT+ inter-industry group, which works to make the FM industry a more attractive career choice for the LGBT+ community
Raj Jones, Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Sodexo UK & Ireland said: “It is fantastic to be recognised for the hard work we put in across the whole of the UK and Ireland.
“This is not just recognition for the central team but for all the individuals and teams across the business who work closely with us including our executive sponsors, employee network leadership teams and spirit of inclusion facilitators to name but a few.”
Diversity and inclusion is key to the global services company, with a dedicated UK & Ireland team providing an inclusion strategy to more than 2,000 sites.
