Diversity & Inclusion
We believe that a diverse and inclusive environment begins with creating awareness and knowledge.
At Compass Group, we develop an open, welcoming environment through our leadership strategy, learning and development opportunities, and employee resource groups. Our passion for continuous improvement attracts great people with unique backgrounds, talents, skills, and abilities.
We value the different perspectives of our associates because they strengthen the quality of our work and services we provide for clients and customers. Our associates are welcomed into a culture where they are engaged, challenged, and supported – helping make us the leader in foodservice and support services management.
Our resource groups reinforce employee engagement and development:
- The Leadership Legacy Network (LLN) offers our associates opportunities to actively cultivate leadership development competencies.
- Nine Diversity & Inclusion Action Councils (DIAC) with 150 plus members who advocate for all associates within each sector and throughout the company.
- The Veterans Associate Resource Group (VARG) goals and objectives are to recognize, honor, promote, and retain our veteran associates.
To us, diversity & inclusion is more than just a business strategy. It is part of our environment and culture.
We strive to build an environment of inclusion that allows associates to contribute, participate, and succeed.
Diverse thoughts and values are acknowledged and respected, and Compass places a high value on open dialogue and transparency. We follow a Zero Tolerance policy when it comes to discrimination and harassment to ensure we create a safe space for all of our associates.
Compass associates have opportunities to achieve their individual goals and set higher ones.
We want our associates to learn and grow, so we offer a wide range of learning opportunities at every level. Those who excel in Compass learning and development courses, as well as successfully realize their professional goals, are recognized and rewarded for their achievements.
Coveted Compass awards include:
- Best Practices in Diversity and Inclusion (national presentation pictured above)
- Engagement Award (national presentation)

Our associates, clients, and customers continually shape our inclusive culture, which drives our shared success. In fact, of the 78,000 employee voices we surveyed in 2015, 85 percent would recommend our products and services. Each member of Compass’ diverse family of companies conducts business with distinct personality and style, adding depth to our valued Compass culture, which fosters creativity and motivates our associates.
Disclaimer: We respect the diversity of our associates so we offer a variety of flexible reward options to meet each employee’s unique needs. Medical benefits; certified domestic partner benefits; vision, dental, and wellness benefits; tuition reimbursement; and 401(k) retirement plans.
