Sodexo launches Quality of Life Observer, the first media 100% dedicated to Quality of Life

Issy-les-Moulineaux, March 17, 2014 - Sodexo launches the Quality of Life Observer, the first online media to monitor and interpret the components that contribute to Quality of Life in environments as diverse as businesses, healthcare facilities, campuses and schools, remote sites and prisons.

Through the Quality of Life Observer, Sodexo provides decision makers and opinion leaders with an information hub, contributing to the emergence of Quality of Life as a decisive factor in individual and collective performance.

The content provides a global panorama on Quality of Life through shared experiences, expert interviews, forums, analyses of university studies and surveys. Rigorous and eclectic, the Observer provides in-depth treatment of major issues and reveals some of the unexpected aspects surrounding Quality of Life.

This unique production is enhanced through media monitoring and is open to external contributions from "Quality of Life Spotters," who are invited to highlight initiatives or propose articles.
