Our People-first Initiatives Aiding Our Culture

Our people-first initiatives reflect our commitment towards keeping our people happy, healthy and drive a positive employee experience.

Extended Maternity Benefit

Motherhood is a wonderful experience. New-born babies need time and care from their mothers. Sodexo recognizes this inherent need and grants pre-maternity and extended unpaid maternity leaves, depending on the complexity of the situation. 

Co-Sharing of Child-Care Expenses

Our gender-agnostic policies aid Diversity and Inclusion. We are empathetic towards the anxiety of parents, that their child is well taken care of, while they are at work. To support our employees, we offer financial assistance for crèche and day-care facilities for children up to the age of 8. This policy covers 2 children of every male and female employee. 

Condensed Working Hours

Working hours can be reduced up to 4 hours/day with a subsequent proportionate reduction in annual compensation. 

Work From Home

Employees who have completed 12 months in the organization can work from home, once a week. This helps in enhancing productivity and managing work-life balance.


In case of personal emergencies, elderly care, education of children or medical care, employees on a need basis can opt for unpaid sabbatical. 

Flexi Working Hours

Employees can punch in anytime between 8 AM and 11 AM and after completing 8.5 hours can leave as early as 4:30 PM. This policy enables the employees to choose their most preferred working hours and plan their travel. 

New-age Insurance Cover

Sodexo being a truly inclusive workplace, has enhanced its existing Insurance Cover and employees can now cover same sex partners (LGBTQ+). Additionally, new age benefits for fertility treatment covering both men and women employees as well as their spouses.

Mental Health & Well-being

Several workshops are organized to provide helpful tips to our employees on holistic well-being and health. These sessions cover aspects like physical wellbeing and health, mental well-being and financial literacy. Through ‘Sodexo Supports Me’ initiative, we encourage our employees to call and avail free and confidential e-counselling.

Individual Development and Growth Opportunities

Sodexo believes in providing a holistic development platform to our employees, by supporting them in their professional journey through various local and global initiatives and interventions. Additionally, the internal opportunities across geographies provide exposure and growth.
