Sodexo Participates in Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility Initiative

Sodexo (No. 6 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list), a world leader in Quality of Life Services, has announced its participation in 2016 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (HACR CII) survey, which released results mid-December.

A research initiative conducted by the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) and the HACR Research Institute, the survey is aimed at measuring Hispanic inclusion in Corporate America. For the fifth consecutive year, Sodexo was among the top-rated companies, receiving an overall score of 90.


The survey focuses on the areas of employment, procurement, philanthropy, and governance. Sodexo recognizes the importance of evaluating these metrics and identifying gaps to frame strategic plans to help the company align with the demands of a diverse, ever-changing marketplace.

Its participation in the survey is key to strengthening Sodexo’s commitment to the U.S. Hispanic community. Survey data allows it to understand the needs of evolving demographics, develop Hispanic initiatives, and make significant progress in the company.

“On behalf of HACR’s Board of Directors, we congratulate Sodexo for keeping Hispanic inclusion top-of-mind,” said Dr. Lisette Garcia, HACR senior vice president, and COO. “By adopting Hispanic inclusiveness, companies such as Sodexo are cultivating a corporate culture that promotes forward thinking which sustains their competitive edge.”

Sodexo delivers more than 100 services across North America that enhance organizational performance, contribute to local communities and improve quality of life. The Fortune Global 500 company is a leader in delivering sustainable, integrated facilities management and foodservice operations.
