Workplace services provider Sodexo Ireland has announced a new strategic alliance with Sensori Facilities Management, as it continues to build its Vital Spaces proposition.
Sodexo’s Vital Spaces is the company’s approach to serving people at work and brings together a suite of workplace and employee-focused services including workplace consultancy, design, management, work-life services and technology and analytics.
Sodexo said that its experience in workplace transformation, combined with Sensori FM’s expertise in digital intelligent building solutions will appeal to companies wanting to create more flexible and sustainable workplaces.
The company said clients would benefit from real-time data analytics, remote monitoring of assets, predictive maintenance, workspace and seating use analytics, as well as air quality, occupancy and health and safety analytics, to better manage the workspace experiences.
It said sustainability and the decarbonisation of buildings are now key objectives for all businesses, as research by the IFMA (International Facility Management Association) found that 73% of business leaders believe that existing and potential employees are scrutinising sustainability policies and demanding more climate-positive action.
Sodexo and Sensori FM aim to collaborate with clients to create strategies to enhance sustainability roadmaps and help to cut their carbon footprint and energy and water consumption by carrying out detailed energy audits, costings and design solutions to ensure that buildings and assets perform at their optimum level of efficiency.
David Fox, managing director of Sodexo Ireland, said: “The management of office space is central to a balanced flexible working strategy and organisations will continue to optimise technology to bridge digital and physical worlds, with a core focus on employee and environmental wellbeing.
“Our relationship with Sensori FM brings a single point of contact for organisations embarking on new workplace transformation programmes, from the initial consultation right through to the implementation of next-generation FM solutions.”
Mark Cullen, managing director, Sensori Facilities Management, added: “There is a strong alignment of company culture and core values across our two businesses. Now operating as an integrated team, we are looking forward to offering a wider scope of services to both existing and new clients.”
Sodexo Ireland employs 2,000 people at more than 100 client locations in Ireland and Northern Ireland while Sensori Facilities Management, with offices in Dublin, Limerick, Clare and Cork, delivers customised FM packages for clients. It directly employs more than 350 multiskilled personnel, including 70 mobile technicians who operate across Ireland 24-7.
