Introducing Sodexo Government & Agencies

Time 175 days ago Comments 0 comments

In the UK and Ireland, Sodexo’s Defence & Government Services segment has changed its name to Government & Agencies to reflect Sodexo’s clients, consumers and business needs.

Continue reading and watch the video below to discover the reasons for this change.
Over the past few years, the segment within the UK and Ireland has seen a shift in the contracts it has been awarded. Key wins include government contracts with a number of government departments and agencies including the Ministry of Justice, Department for Work and Pensions, and most recently HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). The segment is also establishing a strong presence in Scotland with a growing number of government clients including the Scottish Government, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue, and the Scottish Parliament.

Across the UK and Ireland, Government & Agencies is now delivering services to over 35 government agencies, so this name change reflects these business developments.

Sodexo’s contracts with the Ministry of Defence will remain an important part of our business. Sodexo has worked with the British military for more than 30 years. This work will continue alongside our commitments focusing on the wellbeing and quality of life of the UK Armed Forces and their families. Government & Agencies currently delivers services on a number of Ministry of Defence contracts, including Hestia South, Allenby Connaught and Colchester, and we’ve just been awarded contract extensions for our services on Cyprus and the Falkland Islands.

If you have any queries or concerns about this change, please speak to your manager for more information.
