My culture and me

In celebration of the annual World Day for Cultural Diversity held on 21 May, the Sodexo Origins network has put together some short videos and a booklet to share some fascinating stories from members of our diverse workforce.

The videos give a personal account of the passions, paths and challenges of six Sodexo people with different cultural backgrounds and beliefs.
