Sodexo is a worldwide leader in Quality of Life Services and is the dining services provider at Assumption. Its commitment is to developing quality of life services, reinforcing the well-being of individuals and helping companies and organizations improve their internal operating performance.
My internship has taught me how to incorporate corporate social responsibility into an international dining services organization. For example, The Better Tomorrow Plan provides a well balanced meal for student wellness that is linked with organic wholesalers who distribute locally grown food. With my hands-on experience at Sodexo, I have gained strong communication and organizational skills that can be applied to many careers. Planning, managing and implementing monthly events are my primary internship responsibilities.
Last month the dining team hosted a Farm to School week-long event that invited farmers from MA area to display their fruits, vegetables and goods. This gave farmers the opportunity to promote their brands, generate sales and create student awareness of healthy eating practices. Sodexo’s mission statement was well represented in this event and supported both our local and Assumption communities.
I believe my internship has demonstrated the value of socially responsible business practices.
