Top Company for Mentoring: Sodexo

Accepting Award: George Chavel, President and CEO

Reasons for Honor:

Sodexo is the only company to have been in the top two of the DiversityInc Top 50 for five years in a row. That’s because of the efforts of many people, but especially George Chavel, President and CEO, and Dr. Rohini Anand, Senior Vice President and Global Chief Diversity Officer.

At the forefront of Sodexo’s diversity-management efforts has been its remarkable mentoring program, which we’ve used as a model for companies wanting to know what’s best in class.

As part of their compensation-based performance reviews, senior executives are required to be mentors. More than 60 percent of mentoring pairs are cross-cultural. All mentors receive cultural-awareness training, including for LGBT, disability and veterans issues.

Sodexo’s metrics in assessing its mentoring are the most effective we’ve ever seen. They are a critical part in assessing success and constantly innovating the process to improve talent development.
