Listen to this article

Pareto FM are celebrating wins in three categories of the 2022 Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) Impact Awards.

The facility services provider’s support for the Kickstart scheme (a UK government initiative to get young people into jobs which ended earlier this year) won it a ‘Social Value’ award, with a ‘Sector Breakthrough’ award being bestowed on Pareto for measures it has taken to embed equity, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) into its organisational fabric.

Andrew Hulbert, Pareto CEO, who was also recognised with an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Workplace and Facilities Management’ award said at a presentation ceremony at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London hotel, “This is a night I will never forget. When you start a business, you can only dream about occasions like this. It was so brilliant to have our senior leadership team with us and it was amazing to see them enjoy themselves. I am so grateful to our entire team, all our supporters and everyone who has helped us on our journey. This is a truly amazing recognition, and I am genuinely humbled. Thanks so much to everyone”.

Colin Kimber, Associate Director, added: “We are so thrilled to see Pareto recognised with the Sector Breakthrough award. We’ve worked so hard to bring something different to the market and continue on our mission to change the face of FM. This award represents the incredible efforts and hard work from our teams. We remain committed to improving service delivery throughout the sector and look forward to continuing to innovate.”

Emma Wilson, Social Impact Director, said: “I think it’s great that so many social initiatives got real recognition as it’s so empowering and changes so many lives for the better. The Kickstart scheme demonstrated to us as a company and as individuals, how impactful small changes to our everyday working lives could be when we showed a little empathy to understand other people’s journeys. By focusing our facilities maintenance skills that we use daily for problem solving and customer experience to focus on real issues we can not only drive real change effectively but also improve our own lives at the same time. We feel this is just the beginning of what we can achieve as we branch out into several different areas.”


Other award winners included CBRE, Mitie and NHS Property Services.
