Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

At Sodexo, we have a long history of working with the military, spanning over 30 years, focusing on the wellbeing and quality of life of the entire Armed Forces Community. We were an early signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant and in August 2017, we received the Gold Employer Recognition Award from the Ministry of Defence in relation to our commitment to the UK’s Armed Forces.

We are proud to support the Armed Forces in a range of diverse ways to meet the complex needs of military life including:

  • Strong policies to support Reservists - We are committed to being flexible in granting leave to enable employees to train with the Reserve Forces.
  • Positive recruitment of ex-military personnel - We actively recruit ex-services personnel to help with transition into civilian life.
  • Helping military families – We provide employment opportunities for the spouses of service personnel who are posted into areas where we have contracts.
  • Support for military charities – We support a range of military charities including SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity.
