Take a closer look this International Day of Persons with Disability

In celebrating the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities on Dec. 3., 2019, Sodexo has focused on raising awareness on disabilities through the initiative: we’re taking a closer look because there is more to us than you might think.

Sodexo was recognised at the Edge Employment Solutions awards this year as one of their new Leading Employers for 2019 for providing opportunities for people with disabilities. Sodexo Talent Aquisition Manager for Energy & Resources, Ben Newnham, accepted the award on behalf of Sodexo and the dedicated D&I disability champions across the E&R business who seek out and and provide meaningful opportunities for people with disabilities at our client sites.

EDGE Employment Solutions is a not-for-profit disability employment service provider that has been operating in Perth since 1984.  They support people with disability to secure and maintain work in the open workforce. EDGE Employment Solutions has built many long term relationships with employers in the community and have assisted thousands in experiencing the power of disability through employment. 

“Sodexo is proud to be recognised for Disability Inclusion, this award reinforces our commitment to diversity and inclusion and our intentionality around integrating people with disabilities into our workforce, which we know enhances our business and culture.”

At Sodexo, we’re committed to providing a work environment where people can bring their whole selves to work – this includes those with visible and invisible disabilities, often a source of untapped talent. Diversity and inclusion is fundamental to our business strategy and a cornerstone of our culture.
