By Angela Green, Content Executive, H&C News: Workplace guest service provider Amplify launches.
Amplify, a new front-of-house guest service brand offering reception, switchboard, reservations, events, and technical services has been launched by a former senior leader at Portico.
Aimed primarily at the business and industry sector, the Amplify business has launched its package of front of house and hospitality services and has already secured three clients in the media, agency, and consultancy sectors.
The business also offers concierge and placemaking support, as well as workplace ambassadors, floor hosts and community managers.
The company has been launched by Amanda Kay who, for 11 years, was previously director of operations and business development at Portico, the front of house management services provider of Westbury Street Holdings.
Her career also involved 10 years as a business development manager and executive at BaxterStorey and Holroyd Howe, Portico’s sister brands.
Kay said: “The workplace has changed, potentially forever. The events of the last couple of years have seen a real shift in the employee experience being moved to the top of the agenda for business leaders, HR and facilities professionals.
“We are excited to bring a new proposition to the market which delivers the needs of today whilst ensuring that technology and innovation future-proof the experiences in the long term.”
The new company is already seeking to achieve B Corp certification, has committed to plant a tree for every employee who joins Amplify, has pledged at least 1% of the company’s time to volunteering with community projects and pro bono work to support non-profits, and will offer training to support refugees into work through a partnership with The Launchpad Collective.
