At Compass Group, we believe that associate resource groups create a sense of community, inspire professional development and strengthen our inclusive culture.

Led by associates, associate resource groups are powerful tools that support the recruitment, development and retention of diverse, talented individuals. Members expand their professional skills, sharpen their business acumen and practice leadership abilities. They connect with others from across the organization and gain greater visibility. And ARGs provide associates with the opportunity to learn about our other business sectors.
