Sodexo : For the second year running Sodexo is France's leading company for gender balance in top management

Issy-les-Moulineaux, 8 October 2015 - For the second year in a row,
Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life services, tops the list of publicly
quoted companies for gender balance within its leadership team. The list is
published by the Ministry of Women's Rights and concerns gender balance both
in the group's top management and its operational teams.
With women making up 43% of Sodexo's Executive Committee and 38% of its Board
of Directors, the group's commitment to gender equality is the heart of its
strategy and performance. Sodexo is at the forefront of the gender equality
ranking of the SBF 120 French stock market index in a ranking released today
by the French government (the Palmarès de la féminisation des instances
dirigeantes).
Michel Landel, CEO of Sodexo,
said"I am proud that for the second year in a row
the Group has been recognized by the Ministry of State Women's Rights for the
gender balance of our leadership team. Today diversity in all its forms is a
powerful lever for company performance and a source of innovation and
development of talent on behalf of our customers."

Nathalie Bellon-Szabo, Senior Vice President Sodexo Sports and Leisure
, who received the award from Minister of State for Women's Rights Pascale
Boistard, said: "It is a great honour to receive this accolade on behalf of
Sodexo. Sodexo is a
company that is naturally close to both men and women and cannot develop if
it ignores diversity, which is a rich source of creativity and collective
performance.
"
Nathalie Bellon-Szabo stressed the importance of SWIFT, theSodexo Women's
International Forum for Talent
, which underpins Sodexo's strategy for improving the group's gender balance.
Launched 2009 by Michel Landel, SWIFT comprises 35 senior managers
representing 15 different nationalities and all the Company's business
segments, and aims to increase the number of women in senior positions. SWIFT
makes practical suggestions that have led to the progress now recognized by
the French Ministry of Women's Rights
