Diversity & Inclusion - Generations network

Network highlights

Ever wondered why your parents have a different attitude to money, or why children are permanently plugged in?

It’s safe to say we’re all different. Our age, the era we grew up in and our personal experiences all have an influence on us.

People from different generations can have different attitudes, values, beliefs and motivations. Sometimes these differences can help us to work well together and share great experiences and, at other times, it can lead to misunderstanding and miscommunication.

That’s why Sodexo has a Generations network.

Which generation are you?

In today’s workplace we have four generations working together and by understanding a bit more about each, we can work better together. Not everyone from the same generation will think and behave the same way of course, but research has shown that quite often there will be similarities.

GenMatch GameThe GenMatch game

Hopefully you will have seen – and played – our specially created GenMatch game? Every site has received at least one and it’s something you can play again and again in a tea break – it’s informative and a bit of fun too.

It’s just one of the ways we promote the Generations network to people around the business.

What the network has done so far

The generations network in Sodexo has achieved a lot since it was launched in 2014.  The network has a lot more planned in the future and needs employees to join to help us achieve more.
