From The Company
Aramark proudly serves the world’s leading educational institutions, Fortune 500 companies, world champion sports teams, prominent healthcare providers, iconic destinations and cultural attractions, and numerous municipalities in 19 countries around the world with food, facilities and uniform services. Because our culture is rooted in service, our employees strive to do great things for each other, our partners, our communities and our planet.
With management and an operational leadership team that are made up of approximately 56% women and are 57% racially/ethnically diverse, our vision is to leverage the unique experiences of our team members to create a sustainable competitive advantage in the global marketplace.
To achieve that vision, Aramark focuses on three pillars: Workforce, Workplace and Marketplace.
The workforce represents who we are at Aramark, and the goal is to hire, develop and retain leaders and team members who reflect the marketplaces we serve.
In order to attract and retain that workforce, we strive to build an inclusive workplace by creating a culture that values and leverages the differences of our 240,000 employees globally. This includes efforts like diversity training; individual and group mentoring programs; continued growth; development of our 11 employee resources groups (ERGs); and much more.
The marketplace is where Aramark applies our diversity mission beyond the company’s walls. We strive to drive equity by partnering with diverse suppliers, engaging with the community and delivering culturally relevant products and services.
Aramark is honored to once again be recognized as a Top 50 Company for Diversity. We’re proud of the amazing leaders and team members around the world who continue to make our organization a place where all feel a sense of belonging.
