Health and Wellbeing

Compass is dedicated to helping people live healthier, happier and more productive lives. We want to make it easier for our consumers and our employees to make better choices.

2020 Highlights

  • Helped millions of consumers around the world to make better nutritional choices
  • 87% of our sites offer at least one healthy option at every meal occasion
  • Initiatives to support our peoples’ mental health, especially during this difficult year
  • Virtual wellbeing programmes introduced to reach consumers at home

As a global food service company, we recognise that we have an enormous impact on what our 20+ million consumers choose to eat and drink. We make a positive contribution to their diet and nutrition and are proud to help promote the benefits of good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle, particularly, as in some of the markets where we operate, the food we provide may be the only nutritious meal eaten by our consumers that day.

We help our clients to deliver improved employee performance and satisfaction, encouraging client retention in our business.

We drive our health and wellbeing strategy through:

Better Nutrition Choices

According to the Global Nutrition Report 2020, one in three people is now obese or overweight. As a leader in the food service industry, we believe that we can make a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing. We are in a privileged position to help consumers to make better nutritional choices, reducing their consumption of salt, fat and sugar, increasing their fruit and vegetable intake and eating smaller portions, all without compromising on quality or taste.

Mental Health

We believe that protecting the mental health of employees should be a priority for all responsible businesses and we want to help people be supported and feel they can talk about mental health issues.

Our goal is to provide supportive and understanding work environments for our people and our local communities, helping them to identify and address stress and depression.

Healthy Lifestyle

Despite lockdown restrictions due to the pandemic, we have continued to support clients to promote the benefits of exercise and eating a balanced diet. We also help our employees and people in local communities to maintain their physical health and mental wellbeing during these unprecedented times.

Case studies

World’s first biometric mental health management programme

In the UK and Australia, we have been working with Medibio, provider of the world’s first biometric mental health diagnostic product. Illumen TM is a unique app designed to objectively evaluate the mental wellbeing of a workforce. The app helps identify biological markers and patterns to aid in early detection and screening of mental health conditions. It suggests personalised, proactive mental health management strategies and can offer telephone consultations with qualified psychologists where appropriate. In select locations, we have provided access to Illumen to help support our people’s mental health.


With the onset of COVID-19, we quickly transitioned our live and onsite wellbeing initiatives to a virtual platform. We developed our Eat Live Do Well website into a virtual ‘wellness hub’, offering wellness and sustainability advice, as well as a series on COVID-19 related topics like preparing for quarantine, food safety, supporting loved ones and boosting immunity.

"The Eat Live Do Well hub has been well received. Content has been used by clients to enhance remote communication with their stakeholders, and it has enabled us to remain connected with consumers.” Deanne Brandstetter, VP Nutrition & Wellness, Compass Group USA
