Sodexo extends unique, unbroken record as one of world's best outsourcing companies

May 10, 2011

For the third consecutive year, Sodexo has been ranked 3 among the world's leading outsourcing services companies by an industry trade group, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP)*.

Sodexo is the only company to have been ranked in the top five every year since 2006, the year that IAOP began publishing the Global Outsourcing 100.

In conducting the annual ranking of outsourcing firms from throughout the world, IAOP reviews feedback from customers as well as outsourcing experience, workforce skills and training, professional certifications, the track record of the management team and the quality of its customer services. Among the categories in which Sodexo again achieved the highest possible score this year was Customer References.

This latest recognition continues a recent series of honors earned by Sodexo teams, including:

  • For the sixth time, Sodexo was named 2010 global Sector Leader for its industry sector "Restaurants, Hotels, Bars and Recreational Services" by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
  • For the fourth year running, Sodexo was included in the 2011 Sustainability Yearbook and received two distinctions from SAM: 2011 Sector Leader and 2011 Gold Class
  • Sodexo received the Bronze Top Com in France for its interactive annual publications web site on which its annual report, reference document and other reports are published electronically.
