Diversity and Inclusion Vision and Mission
Vision – Empowering our people to be the difference
Mission – Harnessing the power of diversity by showcasing the power of inclusion
We’re really just one person serving another, but we happen to do it over eight million times a day. And just like the customers and communities we serve, not one of us is the same.


While we each have our own stories and our own strengths, we do share a single, common goal: to always be at our best. Whether we’re providing career training or offering advancement opportunities, we empower our associates to pursue careers that ignite their passions and encourage them to create their own stories. Because at Compass Group, your passions are our passions, your story is our story, and we are at our best when you are at yours.


We never stop learning.

We encourage our associates to learn and grow and invest heavily in training each year. Whether for a new associate or a senior level manager, we offer learning and development opportunities to help out people succeed in their current position or advance to the next one.

Our learning & development and talent management teams are always available to help associates manage their careers and develop strategies to set and reach individual goals.

  • Appreciating Differences™, an online training course that shows how diversity & inclusion impacts business success and helps develop skills that keep associates engaged.
  • Inclusive Recruitment, a reality-based training program specifically designed to give recruiters and hiring managers inclusive strategies and tactics to build diverse pipelines.


Compass Group associates practice diversity and inclusion by creating an environment of respect and connection to each other, clients, customers and community.

International Women’s Day

Compass Group celebrates International Women’s Day in support of a global movement for progress that is motivating and uniting people to think, act, and be inclusive. This International Women’s Day, we asked women in our organization to share their own journeys of progress and success. We are proud to share a few of their stories with you.


On Monday, January 18th, 2021, we celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the iconic leader who fought for equality and justice for all and whose legacy remains an important part of our culture today.

In honor of Dr. King, we asked associates from across our Compass family to share how they’re bringing his values to life.
