Our Culture

OUR COMPANY CULTURE REFLECTS OUR VALUES AND PRINCIPLES. WE STRIVE TO CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE EVERY ASSOCIATE FEELS INCLUDED AND CAN COME TO WORK FEELING APPRECIATED, ACCEPTED AND SET UP FOR SUCCESS.

DIVERSITY + INCLUSION ACTION COUNCILS

Our Diversity and Inclusion Action Councils (DIAC) serve as action oriented advisory committees that are dedicated to championing Diversity and Inclusion within our sectors. DIAC members serve as change agents and their efforts are vital in helping build a culture of inclusion and sustaining a market advantage.

CHANGE AGENTS

The DIACs started Inclusion Week across the company as a way to provide a better understanding of the benefits of a diverse and inclusive culture and the associated behaviors.

This year’s theme, #WEIgniteInclusion, reinforced the power of the collective whole. Building an inclusive culture where we all feel supported, valued, and appreciated takes every single one of us working together. Toolkits were developed and filled with activities that align with each day’s theme.

We encourage and support one another, we encourage the sharing of ideas.
We celebrate one another by recognizing and showing appreciation for one another.
We connect and build relationships with our client, community and customer.
We empower one another to grow and develop by creating a culture where all can thrive.
We are Compass Group…together we ignite inclusion year round.

The Leadership Legacy Network (LLN) is a pillar of our diversity and inclusion strategy, focused on engaging and developing associates from all sectors. The LLN promotes professional development opportunities for our members by hosting chapter meetings focused on enhancing leadership skills. As Compass Group’s Associate Empowerment Group, we seek to empower our people to be leaders. Each chapter meeting offers an info-share session focused on leadership development, career growth, mentoring, and inclusive leadership. The hallmark of an LLN chapter meeting is the cross-sector networking environment we offer.

Chapters Include:
Atlanta / Carolinas / Chesapeake / Chicago / Greater Midwest / Gulf Coast / Houston / Metro East / New England / Northern California / South Florida / Southern California / St. Louis

Five Jewel Award

Each year, the Five Jewel Award for Inclusion Excellence recognizes outstanding teams who stand above the rest, exhibiting a true passion for diversity and inclusion. With a 2018 theme of Ignite Inclusion, teams highlighted an inclusion best practice they implemented in the workplace that had a positive impact on the team, client or customer relationship.

The overall winning account, Chartwells Higher Education at Quincy University, implemented frequent Chef Challenges that included all levels of the team and the students. This inclusion best practice engaged many and showcased why the students feel “the café is the most vibrant place on campus.”
