September 24, 2014
Sodexo has been presented with the ‘World Class Service & Quality’ Award for the roll out of a global Facilities Management Transformation program at the Unilever Partner to Win Summit held in London recently.
The summit brings together over 330 representatives from Unilever's strategic supplier partners with the aim of deepening relationships to drive sustainable, mutual growth and to recognize suppliers who have made a winning contribution to the Unilever business.
Sodexo, a leading provider of Quality of Life services, has been working with Unilever’s Workplace team to deliver the Facilities Management Transformation program since January 2012 in a strategic partnership which is driving value for both organizations. With Sodexo as Unilever’s principal FM supplier, the partnership has substantially improved efficiency and delivered significant cost savings, whilst customers and service excellence have been at the forefront of the FM solutions put in place.
Dhaval Buch, Chief Procurement Officer, Unilever said: “I congratulate Sodexo for winning the World Class Service & Quality award. It is our mission to maintain very strong relationships with our suppliers and create mutually beneficial business opportunities. Partner to Win plays a vital role in helping us achieve the Compass vision – our strategy for sustainable growth, which can only be delivered through partnerships.”
Sylvia Metayer, President of Sodexo International Large Accounts, said, “This award acknowledges the hard work and commitment shown by both the Sodexo and Unilever teams to make a transformational change in the delivery of FM services. Sodexo, a long standing Unilever partner is very proud to contribute to Unilever's winning strategy in the market place, bringing value and improving the quality of life for Unilever's employees globally.”
