I am pleased to share with you that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has given Sodexo a 100% rating on the annual 2013 HRC Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and is profiled in the new HRC Best Places to Work list. This marks the 6th consecutive year Sodexo has received a 100% rating on the prestigious CEI.

This is wonderful news and I wanted to congratulate each of you and acknowledge your efforts in advancing our diversity journey and creating an inclusive environment for all of our employees, including our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and Ally team members.

Please join me in thanking our Sodexo PRIDE Employee Network Group Executive Sponsors, Peri Bridger and Stephen Dunmore as well as the PRIDE leadership team chaired by Jeff Snook and co-chaired by Lou Fiore for all of their support in helping Sodexo achieve this awesome accomplishment.  Receiving a 100% on the HRC Corporate Equality Index validates the impact of the work PRIDE does and is a true reflection of the diversity and inclusion progress Sodexo continues to make.

In awarding Sodexo a rating of 100%, HRC called out several actions Sodexo has taken to be a more inclusive organization including: sponsoring a LGBT network group, providing equivalent spousal and same-sex partner benefits, providing medical coverage for sex reassignment surgery, recognizing sexual orientation and gender identity or expression in our Equal Employment Opportunity Policy and actively engaging LGBT-certified vendors in our supplier diversity program.
