Sodexo: Industry Leader in Facilities Management
December 22, 2014
Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services, is the first outsourcing company to win the prestigious Asset Management Achievement Award, given by the Institute of Asset Management to recognize excellence in the management of physical assets and infrastructure.
Sodexo is the only facilities management (FM) provider to offer comprehensive asset management capabilities globally and to clients in diverse segments ranging from corporate and healthcare, to manufacturing, mining and oil and gas. The Group has made its development in FM a strategic priority, and the contribution of FM services to Sodexo’s revenues continues to rise, reaching 28% in 2014. This reflects the increasing demand of Sodexo’s clients for integrated services, as well as the industry-leading technical expertise of its teams, an expertise which is backed by the implementation of Sodexo’s Asset Management Framework. The Framework enables the capture and standardization of best practices across all sites.
Sylvia Metayer, CEO of Corporate Services worldwide for Sodexo, said: “Global clients expect global solutions, from partners who understand their business imperatives and can provide advanced technical services in an integrated way. But it’s not just the services we deliver – it’s the impact they have on our consumers that constitutes our true competitive advantage. When we ensure a safe and comfortable workplace, designed for optimum efficiency; when we improve the robustness of our clients’ environment, their teams perform better, whether in a corporate headquarters in London, an R&D complex in Singapore or a manufacturing plant in Boston. Contributing to individuals’ quality of life boosts performance, everywhere in the world. And leading-edge physical asset management is instrumental to this mission."
