December 4, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Gaithersburg, Maryland/Paris, France -- Sodexo Group will host the company's first-ever live 'twitterchat' on December 10 at 1 PM Eastern.

Sodexo's Neil Barrett, group vice president, sustainable development; Tom Mackall, vice president, global labor relations and John Friedman, director, global corporate responsibility communications will offer an opportunity for dialogue, discussion and idea-sharing based on inside look at the company’s commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability which is integrated throughout the company's online Fiscal 2013 Annual Report "Inside Sodexo."

Moderated by CSRwire Editorial Director Aman Singh and TriplePundit founder Nick Aster, Sodexo's leaders will share their ambitions, answer questions about their commitments and seek feedback from the CR/sustainability community.

On the agenda:

  • The Value of Integrated Reporting: why was integrating Sodexo’s corporate responsibility into the Annual Report a natural fit?
  • Supply Chain Management: Sodexo works with more than 10,000 suppliers across 80 countries ranging from large multinational companies to family farms – how does it manage it all responsibly?
  • Responsible Sourcing: how does a company like Sodexo rise to the challenges presented by crossing global geographies, cultures and regulations while ensuring that everything they source meets their high standards (including quality, safety, sustainability and traceability, etc.)?
  • Employee Engagement: As a leading jobs provider with more than 420,000 employees, how does Sodexo consistently earn leading rankings in diversity and inclusion, provide career opportunities and develop its people?
  • Career opportunities – particularly our focus on youth employment  and development of our people
  • Sodexo was recently ranked top in its sector by the DJSI for the ninth consecutive year. What does it take to maintain leadership in the world of sustainability rankings?

Join us for a compelling conversation and an opportunity to learn and influence what’s around the bend for Sodexo.
