Facilities Management, Cleaning & Waste Management, Contract Awards, Service Provider News, United Kingdom, Engineering

Hearst UK has appointed Churchill Group and Pareto FM as facility services providers for its London offices.

 

Under the terms of the agreement, "Portfolio by Churchill" (Churchill Group's high specification cleaning service for professional workplaces) will oversee cleaning and event management activities, with Pareto assuming responsibility for delivering all mechanical, electrical and fabric related planned and reactive maintenance services, as well as project management services.

 

A number of innovative service solutions will also be introduced, including a workplace hygiene programme – PRISM and Covid-19 mitigation services from Portfolio, and Pareto expanding its "Women in Engineering" programme with an electrical apprenticeship.

 

Hearst UK publishes 25 consumer magazine titles including market-leaders, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping and Esquire. Its brands reach over one in three UK women and one in four UK men every month, enabling consumers to get more out of life and their trusted content engages them wherever they are. According to the company's website, it sells over four million magazines a month and reaches 20+ million UK digital unique users and has more than 79 million likes and follows via their social media platforms.

 

Sophie Wilkinson, head of operations and PMO, Hearst UK, comments: "Since moving to Leicester Square in 2018, we have been keen to align our service partners to our new way of working; being able to deliver high cleaning and maintenance standards, whilst also operating as efficiently and effectively as possible. In Portfolio by Churchill and Pareto we found two service partners that completely understood our ethos, high standards and approach to inclusivity and were able to demonstrate that we could create a true partnership."

 

Antony Law, managing director of Portfolio by Churchill, adds: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Hearst UK and see our shared beliefs around inclusivity and standards create the right energy and atmosphere throughout their London property portfolio. Our partnership with Hearst UK and Pareto will, I’m sure, create opportunity for our team members as well as demonstrate the good that can come from like-minded teams working together to make the best workplace for everyone."

 

Andrew Hulbert, Pareto FM managing director, says: "We’ve been an admirer of Hearst UK for some time and aspired to be like them. They are a genuine world leader in diversity and inclusion strategy and genuinely lead from the front. We applauded their approach to LGBT+ and Black Lives Matter, and watch with inspiration as they help to shape the world we live in.

 

"The opportunity to partner with a brand like Hearst UK is incredible and we look forward to this partnership. We are particularly excited to grow our women in engineering programme."
