Sodexo has announced that it has been awarded a five-year contract with Quilter, a leading provider of advice, investments and wealth management in the UK and internationally. The contract which starts in March 2020 will see Sodexo deliver a range of services including food and hospitality services.
The contract initially covers 26 Quilter sites in the UK and Ireland and includes its London head office as well as Quilter’s hubs in Southampton and the Isle of Man. Quilter oversees £110.4 billion in customer investments and employs around 4,500 people, the majority of whom provide wealth and financial advice services to private and institutional clients.
Previously Quilter had contracts with a number of different providers. Sodexo was chosen based on its cultural alignment with Quilter which, like Sodexo, recognises that employee experience and a healthy workplace culture is essential for an organisation to thrive.
Maxine Hulme, Group Director of Security and Property Services at Quilter commented saying: “We are continually looking to improve the way our teams work together and by bringing all the FM services under the management of one provider, this will enable us to create a workplace where our people can flourish. Sodexo demonstrated that its culture aligned with ours and we look forward to working together to help make Quilter a vibrant and exciting place to work.”
