Sodexo Achieves 100% Rating by Human Rights Campaign

Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has announced that Sodexo received a 100% rating on the annual 2013 HRC Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and will be profiled in the HRC Best Places to Work list. This marks the 6th consecutive year Sodexo has received a 100% rating on the prestigious CEI.
