ISS UK & Ireland has teamed up with UK social value measurement organisation, Social Value Portal, to strengthen its extensive social value strategy
The partnership, will enable ISS to quantify and report the social value the business generates, and underlines the company’s commitments to people, places and planet — “from the way we work and the way we hire talent to the ways we engage with colleagues, clients and the communities where we work”.
The Social Value Portal is a social impact company that prevents ‘greenwashing’ and sets tangible action, bringing rigour to the way organisations measure, manage and report on social value, and helping them evidence exactly how they, and their suppliers, are making a difference in communities.
Anna Farquharson, Head of Social Value for ISS UK & Ireland, said: “ISS embeds social value into the way we work, from hiring new talent to how we engage with our colleagues and communities. Our partnership with Social Value Portal enables us to not only gauge the positive effects we have as an organisation but do so with complete transparency, helping us manage performance and drive improvements across our business.”
Guy Battle, CEO of Social Value Portal, commented: “Social Value Portal is delighted to be partnering with ISS; It’s a clear indication of the importance ISS associates with affecting positive change. We look forward to supporting ISS in its clear commitment to social value.”
Planned, proactive maintenance is a keystone of every FM strategy. However, with current cost constraints, there are many demands on Facilities Managers’ maintenance budgets.

Given your role as an FM Professional, we would love to hear your views, challenges & experiences, and opinions on drainage & plumbing within the workplace.
