HR Partnership

At Compass Group we strive to ensure diversity and inclusion is interwoven throughout the fabric of the organization. We are continually assessing our recruitment, development, and growth strategies to ensure we are cultivating an environment where everyone can be their best.

D+I Training

Building a culture of inclusion is an ongoing journey and we strive to provide resources that support an evolution of learning and awareness.

INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP / An online training that takes a unique and interactive approach to learning, allowing the learner to explore the behaviors associated with leading inclusively, and how it drives results within the business.

RESPECT EFFECT / An instructor led training that focuses on the tools and behaviors necessary to create respectful environments and the impact it can have in our everyday lives.

UNCONSCIOUS BIAS / A newly launched online training designed to help the learner become aware of and mitigate the impact unconscious bias. This is an opportunity to explore a valuable concept and help foster the inclusive environment that we seek to create at Compass Group.

Mentoring

At Compass Group, we put people first; our employees are a significant component of our competitive advantage. We strive to innovate and look for new ways to bring development support to associates at all levels. As part of our ongoing commitment to our management teams, we have recently partnered with a mobile coaching company that brings executive coaching to managers’ fingertips – straight from their mobile devices. With a global network of best-in-class executive coaches, the result is personalized development to drive individual and organizational results in key leadership behaviors. This on-going support, with just-in-time feedback from a professional coach, is provided in a manner that fits easily into our leaders’ busy schedules. Leaders have an opportunity to work one-on-one with an executive coach to identify their values, strengths, and passions so they can set ambitious goals for themselves as well as develop new skills and habits. The coaches will support our leaders building their plans and new habits that will accelerate their success.

“In the 7 1/2 years I’ve worked for Compass, I’ve been promoted four times. I was expected to not allow my job description to dictate my responsibilities; Compass pushed me to learn all aspects of the business. Diversity and inclusion is critical to our success as a company.
The appreciation of differences and inclusion of all kinds of people in my life have shaped me into the leader I am today.”
