About Sodexo

Published on April 14, 2017

At Sodexo, we have a vision. We believe that to create lasting value, organizations and society as a whole must make people’s well-being a top priority. We consider Quality of Life to be a key, yet largely unexplored factor — a new frontier in individual and collective performance. We are convinced that future growth must rely on and benefit humanity.

Founded in 1966 in Marseille by Pierre Bellon, Sodexo is global market leader in Quality of Life – enhancing services, which are crucial in individual and organizational performance. 


Operating in 80 countries, Sodexo serves 75 million consumers each day through its unique combination of On-site Services, Benefits and Rewards Services and Personal and Home Services. Through its more than 100 services, Sodexo provides clients an integrated offering developed over 50 years of experience: from food services, reception, safety, maintenance and cleaning, to facilities and equipment management; from Meal Pass, Gift Pass and Mobility Pass benefits for employees to in-home assistance, child-care centers and concierge services. 

Sodexo’s success and performance are founded on its independence, its sustainable business and financial model and its ability to continuously develop and engage its 425,000 employees throughout the world. Sodexo belongs to the CAC 40 and DJSI stock market Indices.

In order to share this vision of promoting quality of life, Sodexo is organizing its second Quality of Life Conference on October 16 and 17 in London.
