The Working Mother magazine has recognized Sodexo, provider of "quality of life" services, as one of the best company for multicultural women to work for in 2017. Since the initiation of the honor 15 years back, Sodexo has been honored seven times, including this year's honor. The honor recognizes US companies that have created and used best practices for hiring, promoting, and retaining women from diverse backgrounds.
At Sodexo, diversity and inclusion are integrated into the culture, and strategic efforts are designed to address any challenges faced by minorities. The 40,000 multicultural women employed by Sodexo in the US make up one-third of its workforce.
