"Making your organization a good place for young people to start their careers is about more than simply appearing trendy or hip," says Kristina Leung, senior editor of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc., which publishes the competition. "It shows all your employees and customers that you are open to change. Employers that understand their youngest workers have the most success in adapting their business models to respond to changing technologies and consumer preferences."
Chief among the reasons for achieving this distinction:
- Sodexo Canada manages the Sharing Across Generation networking group, which organizes activities designed to help multiple generations in the workplace forge connections – and also offers training on topics such as multigenerational management and engagement
- Sodexo Canada's "Rising Stars" program, offers paid internships and co-op placements, and hires promising participants into full-time entry-level management positions – young hires are paired with a "hosting manager" who will prepare them for their new roles and help them understand the company's mission and values
- Sodexo Canada established the "IMPACT" mentoring program, a 12-month initiative to help develop high-potential employees who have a minimum of 12-months of service
Sodexo delivers more than 100 services across North America that enhance organizational performance, contribute to local communities and improve quality of life. The Fortune Global 500 company is a leader in delivering sustainable, integrated facilities management and foodservice operations.
