Sodexo has been awarded an integrated facilities management (IFM) contract with Quilter, a provider of advice, investments and wealth management in the UK and internationally.
The five-year deal will see Sodexo deliver a range of services including food including hospitality, technical services, reception, concierge & security, cleaning, grounds maintenance, helpdesk and real estate advisory.
The contract initially covers 26 Quilter sites in the UK and Ireland and includes its London head office as well as Quilter’s hubs in Southampton and the Isle of Man.
Quilter employs around 4,500 people, the majority of whom provide wealth and financial advice services to private and institutional clients.
Previously Quilter had contracts with a number of different providers. Sodexo was chosen based on its cultural alignment with Quilter which, like Sodexo, recognises that employee experience and a healthy workplace culture is essential for an organisation to thrive.
David Bailey, CEO Corporate Services, Sodexo UK & Ireland said: “We are delighted that Quilter has chosen Sodexo to be its partner to deliver a people-centred, integrated workplace experience. Our services are designed to help Quilter concentrate on its core business whilst we focus on creating an exceptional workplace experience and culture, that can support productivity and attraction and retention of top talent.”
Maxine Hulme, Group Director of Security and Property Services at Quilter added: “We are continually looking to improve the way our teams work together and by bringing all the FM services under the management of one provider, this will enable us to create a workplace where our people can flourish. Sodexo demonstrated that its culture aligned with ours and we look forward to working together to help make Quilter a vibrant and exciting place to work.”
The contract will commence in March 2020.
