Michel Landel, CEO of Sodexo, an international €11. 8bn company, has done some interesting work and for me, it was even more powerful that a man was proving that gender balance in business made a serious financial impact. “He carried out tests where he had female/male heavy groups, and then balanced groups and the outcome every time for the balanced group was better work, better outcomes, better financially performing teams and happier teams,” says Kim. The study in question was undertaken across Sodexo units in 2015 and showed that where the gender balance was 50 50, the companies involved were consistently more profitable. Speaking about the findings to Shellie Karabell at the Women’s Forum for Economy and Society in 2016, Landel said:“The study’s results showed an impressive correlation between gender balance and performance indicators across every category, including employee engagement, brand image, client and consumer satisfaction, and growth and profits. I am free to choose. I exercise my will freely. There is purpose to what I do. There is no right or wrong. I choose what feels right, good and true.
