We value opportunities to show our love and support to our community by making weekly deliveries for Meals on Wheels, participating in build days for Habitat for Humanity, and greeting servicemen and servicewomen during Welcome Home a Hero at DFW International Airport.
Closer to home, Inspirus employees work together for the common good by picking up trash during Keep Fort Worth Beautiful and collecting gently used clothing for the Salvation Army — all in an effort to do our part.
We also offer a socially responsible line of products — Rewards Done Right — in our catalogs. Examples include handmade items from organizations that employ disadvantaged single mothers who want to improve their lives and products created by micro-business owners in third-world countries.
As an Inspirus client services account representative, Jennifer Long provides caring and genuine service to each and every client. Our team gets to pay it forward by helping to provide Jennifer a home and a brighter future.
Jennifer and her two sons moved into their new Habitat for Humanity home. “We were able to stay settled in one place and have a solid home,” says Jennifer, who has been with Inspirus for eight years. “It means so much to me that my coworkers have volunteered to help build our new home.”
Better Tomorrow 2025 launched in 2009 and formalizes our commitments and allows us to track the implementation and results in the 80 countries in which Sodexo operates, taking our efforts to a higher level of performance and transparency.
The strength of Better Tomorrow 2025 is that it rests on three pillars that provide a consistent and structured approach for all of our efforts.
We are dedicated to Sodexo’s cornerstones of a responsible company — Group Fundamentals, Business Integrity and Corporate Governance.
We do work across 18 commitments divided into four priorities:
We engage with individuals and communities worldwide to create sustainable development and identify areas of positive action across our commitments. Together we can go far beyond what we could achieve alone.
Better Tomorrow 2025 consists of nine broader commitments designed to reinforce the culture of responsible behavior throughout Sodexo's business. These nine commitments are fully aligned with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and each commitment is underpinned by a hard measurable objective allowing the Group to constantly monitor progress. Gender balance work teams, sourcing from women-owned businesses, improving Quality of Life for women in our communities, and advocating hunger-free communities are all important components of our Better Tomorrow 2025 roadmap.
The cornerstone of Sodexo’s gender strategy is the Sodexo Women's International Forum for talent, (SWIFt), an advisory board reporting to the Group (global) Executive Committee dedicated to ensuring better gender balance at all levels of the organization, and especially for leadership with particular attention to P/L positions. SWIFt has two executive sponsors who are direct reports to the global CEO. SWIFt focuses on gender networks, work life effectiveness, development for women, HR processes and communications. SWIFt sets the gender strategy and drives progress towards gender balance throughout the organization.
In 1996, Sodexo created Stop Hunger, which mobilizes volunteers, including Sodexo employees, clients, customers and youth to contribute to hunger-free communities around the world. Sodexo employees support Stop Hunger year-round by donating their time, resources and expertise, holding fundraisers, and encouraging others to get involved.
In 1999, the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, was created with the mission to ensure that every child in the United States grows up with dependable access to enough nutritious food to enable them to lead a healthy, productive life. Sodexo Inc. funds all administrative costs for the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation to ensure that all money raised helps those in need. Since its inception, the foundation has granted more than $29 million to alleviate child hunger.
We care about our people, and our C.A.R.E. team proves it every day.
Sure, we spend most of our workday thinking about how we can care for our clients. But at the same time, a remarkable team of Inspirus volunteers — the C.A.R.E. team — tends to our people.
The C.A.R.E. team plans, organizes and hosts monthly activities that promote a fun and supportive culture. Picnics, pancake breakfasts, Wii bowling tournaments, baseball games, family day at the Fort Worth Zoo and Cinco de Mayo hot sauce competitions are just a few of the fun ways we blow off steam and bond with our fellow coworkers.
Through charitable giving, we allow organizations and employees the opportunity to support charities that mean the most to them. We can aid in your efforts to give back and support your community partners through charitable gifts, a feature in our Universal Rewards Mall™ that allows employees to use their points to donate to the charity of their choice. We value opportunities to give back to communities. Community service is at the heart of our culture, and together we can continue to make a difference in our communities.
