For almost 40 years, the UK has celebrated Black History Month every October – a time to recognise and value the inspirational individuals and events that have shaped African and Caribbean history, and to celebrate Black arts and culture. Now, Black History Month has expanded to include the history of not just Afro- Caribbean black people but all black people in general.

Black History Month is commemorated with various events across the region, including talks, exhibitions and concerts. Opportunities include Birmingham University’s programme of events, art plays and more in London, and film screenings in Cardiff. Discover what events are taking place near you here - there are now roughly 6,000 events taking place for Black History Month across the UK every year!

Sodexo Origins was launched in 2016 and promotes the inclusion of all cultures and origins.

Everyone in Sodexo is invited to join the Origins employee network. Origins offers advice and resources to its members, as well as networking opportunities held throughout the year.

Voice: it's results time!

Last month, all Sodexo colleagues were invited to take part in our global engagement survey, Voice.

Keep your mind on safety

Keeping food allergen incidents at bay

With sites continuing to reopen across the region, we must never forget that food allergens present a danger to over two million people in the UK and Ireland. In the final chapter of our mini series on back-to-site safety, we’re talking about food allergen processes.

Staying vigilant through change

We’re all juggling responsibilities in the new normal, but as new ways of working become the norm, it can be easy to get complacent with safety. This week, we focus on near misses and hazard spotting - a good way for sites to stay on top of their safety game and prevent potentially harmful accidents from ever occurring.

Be prepared, be safe

Simply asking you to be safe is easy enough, but making sure you feel prepared is another story. Returning to work can be pretty daunting after the year we’ve had so far. Help us help you be prepared with these five safety tips.

With our central offices re-opening, client sites rising again and many people returning to school and work after the summer holidays, it’s time to remind ourselves about Sodexo’s number one priority – keeping colleagues safe.
