Compass Group UK & Ireland has won the Employer of the Year Award in the Retail, Hospitality & Tourism category at the BAME Apprenticeship Awards.

Organised by the BAME Apprentice Network, the BAME Apprenticeship Awards aims to showcase the range of talent and hard work within the BAME communities. Made possible with the contribution of employers and learning providers who share these values.

The award win is a further credential in Compass Group's social equality efforts. In July 2020, the group signed up to the Race at Work Charter, in partnership with Business in the Community (BITC), to improve outcomes for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) employees in the UK.

Donna Catley, Chief People Officer at Compass Group UK & Ireland commented: “Winning this award is fantastic recognition of our apprenticeship team, and how they help change lives, along with the support of our great partners and training providers. We have a D&I strategy in place to ensure everyone in the business can be themselves at work and have an equal opportunity to progress and follow their career path.”

Jonathan Foot, Head of Apprenticeships and Early Careers at Compass Group UK & Ireland added: “We are honoured to receive this award and are immensely proud to see the growth of our diverse apprentice community acknowledged with this amazing accolade. It has been especially rewarding to watch our apprentices progress and develop throughout the pandemic, whilst achieving their qualifications.
