Sodexo Named One Of The "World's Most Admired Companies" By Fortune Magazine

GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services, is the most admired company in its sector according to Fortune Magazine's 2013 corporate reputation survey. Nearly 4,000 business executives, directors and analysts rated close to 700 companies from 30 countries on nine criteria, from innovation to global competitiveness, for the survey.

Among leading global companies in the Diversified Outsourcing Services sector, Sodexo ranked number one overall, and was also ranked first for Innovation, Social Responsibility, Financial Soundness, Long-term Investment and Global Competitiveness.

"As services continue to drive development in modern societies, they play increasingly critical business and social roles in addressing economic activity, employment and individual needs," said George Chavel, president and CEO, Sodexo North America. "Our diversified services ultimately improve quality of life, and we're proud to be positioned squarely at the intersection of business performance and social change."

Sodexo's combined business and social models drive the Group's competitiveness and growth. Strong performance and ranking in key reputation categories reflects the principles of service, team and progress that unite the 125,000 employees across North America and the Group's 420,000 member workforce operating in 80 countries worldwide. Going forward, Sodexo aims to be the leader for development in communities where the company operates, and the global benchmark for Quality of Life services that improve clients' performance.

"Sodexo has deliberately and diligently undergone a cultural transformation focused on becoming a strategic partner for clients and communities," added Chavel. "Our philosophy isn't merely aimed at commercial achievement. It's strongly tied to what we see as our social commitments; to employee development, to diversity and inclusion within our teams, and to helping local communities grow and succeed."

Sodexo North America operates in local communities at more than 6,000 sites and includes specialization in more than 100 types of services, from technical facilities and equipment management, to reception, concierge and cleaning, to maintenance, safety and foodservices. Sodexo delivers a combination of On-site Services, Benefits and Rewards Services and Personal and Home Services to companies, hospitals, schools, individuals and communities, serving more than 15 million consumers daily.
