GAITHERSBURG, Md., January 30, 2019—Sodexo, a food services and facilities management company, announced today the organization’s placement on the FlexJobs list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2019. For the fourth consecutive year, Sodexo was recognized for the number of opportunities available on its job board that allowed telecommuting as an option, either full- or part-time.
“Our employees’ quality of life, including workplace flexibility, is important to us,” said Gerri Mason Hall, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Sodexo North America. “When there’s a balance between professional and personal responsibilities among our employees, effectiveness at work and employee satisfaction is enhanced.”
Sodexo offers different tiers of flexibility for employees. If approved, employees can choose from job sharing, remote work, telecommuting, flex time, which adjusts the start or end of a work day, or part-time work.
Flexible work arrangements are a derivative of Sodexo’s FLOW (Flexibility Optimizes Work) initiative. FLOW promotes open lines of communication where employees can request changes in their schedule, location, or way work gets done, so long as it doesn’t interfere with the business. Through FLOW practices, business needs are met while employees enhance their sense of well-being, engagement and quality of life.
In addition to providing flexible work arrangements, Sodexo prides itself on being a great place to work and is committed to providing a variety of tools and resources to support employees’ career goals, including training and mentoring. For more information on Sodexo as an employer see here.
FlexJobs’ list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2019 is based on an analysis of over 51,000 companies and their remote job posting histories in the FlexJobs database to identify the top 100 companies with the highest number of remote job openings during 2018. To be considered, the jobs offered by these companies had to be remote-friendly, either allowing for candidates to telecommute entirely or part of the time.
FlexJobs is the leading online service for professionals seeking telecommuting, flexible schedule, part-time, and freelance jobs. With flexible job listings in over 50 career categories, and opportunities ranging from entry-level to executive and freelance to full-time, FlexJobs offers job seekers a safe, easy, and efficient way to find professional and legitimate flexible job listings.
