Sodexo has introduced a hygiene verification label for its procedures and services.
It developed the label with Bureau Veritas, an independent auditor of workplace best practices and measures.
The label will help to reassure clients and consumers that “all necessary health steps have been taken when organisations reopen post-lockdown”, said the company.
It covers both facilities management on-site services (reception, cleaning, disinfection, security and maintenance services), and catering services (adapted to take into account social distancing and contactless services).
The label will be immediately introduced in France, UK, the US and Canada and then gradually rolled out in other countries.
Sylvia Metayer, Sodexo’s chief growth officer, said: “Re-establishing trust among people so they have total peace of mind when resuming on-site work is absolutely paramount.”
