At Sodexo we continually monitor workplace trends and their impact on employees—ours or our clients’. More deeply, we focus on understanding how human beings thrive at work because we are convinced that quality of life at work contributes sustainably to the success of organizations. We believe that it is essential for leaders across industries to recognize the underlying trends of change, to evaluate how relevant and significant they are and to determine how to stay ahead of—rather than follow—them.
A spectrum of different workplaces: how we did it
Initial identification of trend topics came from research and through our own insights into workplaces around the world. We looked at global news sources focused on HR and the workplace and selected 10 trends relevant to Sodexo based on the services we offer and/or the way we partner with clients. Nearly 50 subject matter experts were consulted. Secondary source material and statistics were compiled from global news sources and research databases.
