Sodexo Business Services Opened its New Finance Services Center in Porto 



Matosinhos, one of the best locations in Big Porto.


Founded in Marseilles, France, in 1966 by Pierre Bellon, Sodexo is the global leader in services that improve Quality of Life, an essential factor in individual and organizational performance. Operating in 72 countries, Sodexo serves 100 million consumers each day through its unique combination of On-site Services, Benefits and Rewards Services and Personal and Home Services. In 2018, Sodexo chose Porto as the destination for its Finance Services Center (SBS), serving all European countries.

We care about service

In June 2018, Sodexo launched its SoOne project to enhance operational efficiency. The purpose of this project was to set up a new Sodexo Finance Services Center in Porto to transform and centralize finance, legal and IT activities, bringing process standardization, harmonizing technology and implementing new tools.


The project has improved efficiency, enhanced performance, reduced costs and made Sodexo more competitive. On March 19, the project was awarded the “Digital Finance Project of the Year” and “Most Ambitious Project” by Digital Finance Awards, recognizing our success in making the finance function more agile, flexible and effective.

We care about quality of life

A company’s employees are its most valuable assets and SBS is taking that approach very seriously. By choosing Matosinhos, a 10-minute walk from the beach location, we have decided to put the quality of life of our team members at the forefront of what we do. Brand new and at the cutting edge of technology, our offices bring openness and alight and cozy atmosphere. It’s not all about work either; we encourage activities that enhance personal wellbeing and, at the site in Porto, we have a number of facilities and activities to promote wellness, including a running team.


Sodexo provides clients an integrated offering developed over more than 50 years of experience: from food services, reception, maintenance and cleaning to facilities and equipment management; from services and programs fostering employees’ engagement to solutions that simplify and optimize their mobility; and expenses management to
