The first two Sodexo BRS companies to launch are Sodexo Benefits & Rewards (BRS) in Romania and Inspirus by Sodexo in North America with other countries expected to follow shortly. The new partnership strengthens “Sodexo BRS global proposition around Employee Benefits and Rewards & Recognition by offering organisations the ability to understand in real-time how happy and engaged their people are through The Happiness Index’s platform.

The Happiness Index platform uses a range of neuroscience-based surveys that enables companies to understand how employees think, feel and behave across the employee experience. This real-time employee feedback empowers organisations to drive cultural change through targeted action plans.

Viktoria Otero del Val, SVP Strategy, Product and Customer Experience at Sodexo Benefits & Rewards shares: “We work with organisations of all sizes and sectors globally, and the thing they all have in common is the increasing range of complex people issues that they must manage. We’re delighted to have signed a global agreement with The Happiness Index enabling us to offer their cutting-edge neuroscience platform to our clients. This partnership will empower our clients to complement the employee benefits services they receive from Sodexo BRS, to understand in real-time what their people are thinking and feeling. Organisations can then anticipate and rapidly respond to their people’s needs, creating a culture built upon the key drivers that build happiness and engagement.”

Raphaëlle Rouvroy, Partnerships & Strategic Alliances Director, Sodexo BRS says: “In every strategic partnership that we put in place, a good cultural fit between partners is essential to success. Knowing that both our businesses are purpose-led and focused on creating a better world of work, I’m really confident that our collaboration with The Happiness Index will be fruitful and long lasting”.

Matthew Phelan, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of The Happiness Index comments: “After working with Sodexo Group for many years to help them diagnose their own cultural health, we are delighted to extend our relationship with Sodexo Benefits & Rewards through the creation of this new partnership. As a leading global provider of employee benefits services, Sodexo BRS understands that to survive and grow, organisations need to listen to their people and get a real-time picture of how happy and engaged they are. Adding our neuroscience-based platform to their product portfolio will be a game changer for Sodexo BRS”.
