Compass Group Australia is proud to have been recognised for its commitment to diversity and inclusion, recently being presented with the MAX Employer of the Year Award (large business) for 2022-2023.
The award acknowledges Compass Group’s dedication to flexible recruitment processes and respect for the value of each individual and what they can bring to the Compass Group team. This kind of flexibility opens up opportunity for people living with disability and those experiencing a range of other challenges that might otherwise see them excluded during a hiring process.
The team at Compass Group are committed to supporting employees to progress in their careers and many MAX customers are enjoying career advancement thanks to the opportunities provided by Compass Group.
Vanessa Martin, General Manager, Diversity and Inclusion, Compass Group Australia accepted the award on behalf of Compass Group.
“With over 13,000 employees and 700 operational sites, multiple different business sectors, it does give us the opportunity to really step forward and work collaboratively with organisations like MAX to really make a difference in people’s lives and give them that dignity they need to be a contributing piece to society,” said Vanessa.
“This award means a huge amount to everybody involved in our business and we really pride ourselves on diversity and inclusion being a DNA piece in our business. We really do appreciate the acknowledgment and we do love the support ongoing – it is a tried and tested relationship. Thank you,” she said.
Upon presenting the award, MAX Country Manager Darren Hooper congratulated Compass Group Australia.
“This award showcases your drive for continual improvement and advancement in the diversity space. I congratulate you on a fantastic effort – a worthy winner,” he said.
