Sodexo handed Ministry of Defence honour

Sodexo has been honoured with a silver award by the Ministry of Defence for its commitment to and support of military reservists.

The award is in recognition of its positive HR policies with regard to reservists, who it offers the flexibility required for them to fulfil their training and deployment commitments.

Part of the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme launched in July 2014, the silver award recognises employers for their support to the UK armed forces.

Sodexo Defence human resources director Rachel James said: "We are committed to supporting every one of our colleagues who is a reservist or who is interested in becoming a reservist and this is a key element of our commitment to the armed forces corporate covenant; our pledge to the MOD to support regular and reserve forces, veterans and their families.

"Reservists are our colleagues who give up their time to train and serve alongside the regular armed forces and Sodexo Defence is ideally placed to lead on Sodexo's support to this element of our workforce - I am delighted that our commitment to our reservists has been recognised with a silver award, especially so soon after the launch of the scheme."
