Drivers of Change

In the new normal, these drivers will push businesses to adapt, transform the way workplaces are organised and drive the adoption of innovation, even as health, safety and well-being become even more pressing concerns.

Changed expectations around food

Rather than traditional staff restaurants, social distancing concerns will drive adoption of "Grab-n-Go", digital orders or even delivery options for remote workers. Sodexo's new food services and models can help.

COVID-19 is here for the medium term

Medical therapies for COVID19 will take time to develop and test. In the meantime, scientific consensus suggests that we might see up to 3 more waves of COVID19 over the next 2 years. Sodexo can help you prepare your business and your workplace for this.

The shift to remote working

Even after workplaces reopen, remote working arrangements are likely to continue, because of business continuity plans, or to enable flexibility for employees with caregiving needs. Sodexo can help you to create a more effective, tech-driven workspace to facilitate different working styles and arrangements.

Sustainability in the workplace will continue to play a key role, with the global situation drawing attention to the carbon and environmental footprint of human activity. From energy management to reducing waste, Sodexo can help.
