Sodexo Group introduces a common foundation for employee
benefits with its program Vita by Sodexo, which
provides all its eligible employees across the globe with a minimum
benefits package of Parental and Care Leave, Life Insurance Benefit
and an Assistance phone line.
In line with Sodexo’s purpose -- “Create a better
every day for everyone to build a better life for all” --
the launch of Vita by Sodexo demonstrates the Group’s
commitment to contribute to the personal, financial, and family
well-being of all its employees regardless of the country in which
they work or the Group entity by which they are employed.
This global employee benefits program, Vita by Sodexo, sets
minimum standards in all the countries where Sodexo operates
for the following three essential benefits:
- An Assistance phone line accessible 24/7 which
supports employees with personal access to practical advice,
guidance and counselling.
- This support is a continuation of the measures implemented
since 2015 and particularly since the Covid-19 pandemic.
- A Life Insurance Benefit which ensures that employees have
peace of mind that their family’s financial wellbeing is protected
should the unexpected happen.
- Sodexo wants to ensure that employees' dependents receive an
equivalent of 1-year of the employee's base salary in the event of
- Parental and Care Leave providing the ability to take
time off to look after children and/or dependants at the time they
need it most.
- More specifically, Sodexo is committing to providing a minimum
of 12 weeks of payable benefit for parental leave for the primary
carer, with an ambition to reach 14 weeks in most countries, 2
weeks of payable benefit for parental leave for the secondary carer
and 5 days of family care leave with payable benefit.
Vita by Sodexo will progressively be implemented in most of the
countries where Sodexo operates, acknowledging the deployment
timeline may vary from country to country. By the end of 2024, 60%
at least of total countries will benefit from Vita by Sodexo.
These benefits are to be made available in all entities of the
Sodexo Group in compliance with local legislation and the
obligation, where applicable, for discussions with labor
organizations and social partners. The terms and conditions
of these benefits will be provided in official plan and policy
documents to be adopted in each country and employing entity.
With Vita by Sodexo, the Group supports its ambition to be
and remain an employer of choice.
“Our employees’ well-being matters and means a great deal to
us. We give it all the attention and importance it deserves. This
program illustrates our ongoing commitment to be a responsible
employer. Sodexo is the first global group in its sector to make
such a major commitment. I’m confident Vita by Sodexo could make a
difference in the lives of our employees and help us attract and
retain talent.”, said Annick de Vanssay, Sodexo Group Chief Human
