Sommerville joins Social Mobility Commission’s EAG

Compass Group UK and Ireland’s chief people officer, Carol Sommerville, has joined the Social Mobility Commission’s employer advisory group (EAG), which works to support organisations to create better socio-economic inclusion in their workforce. It is an independent statutory body that exists to help create a country where the circumstances of someone’s birth does not determine their outcome in life.

Sommerville is passionate about improving social mobility and is responsible for delivering Compass’s Our Social Promise – a commitment to support a million people with opportunities such as job creation, education, training, community and charitable engagement by 2030.

“It’s great to join this industry-leading group, which is driving the agenda for businesses on social mobility,” she said. “I am looking forward to sharing ideas and best practice, as well as discussing how we can act together to address the challenges people are facing across the country, and what more businesses can do to unlock them.”
