PERFORMANCE Facilities services provider, Grosvenor Services has launched a specialist technology division to help businesses get the most from their technology-based systems, from fire and life safety, to energy management and security solutions.

The growth in technology-based systems provides organisations with a previously untapped means of boosting performance. Grosvenor Services’ highly experienced technology services team has extensive knowledge of how to harness the benefits of these systems to help reduce costs, optimise operations and improve efficiency, through a joined-up approach.

Ian Campbell, Technology Services Director at Grosvenor Services, said: “We’re really excited to have launched this innovative, forward- looking division. With the growing complexity of technology systems in a typical commercial building it can be hard to ensure efficient use and the best return on investment.”

Through a consultation process, the technology division works with organisations to develop sophisticated, end-to-end solutions which meet their business needs, now and in the future. This covers design, configuration, installation and maintenance, with


comprehensive testing before the system is installed, but, more importantly the team use the data generated to develop intelligent solutions to business issues.

Ian explained: “Our technology solutions provide critical information to organisations, giving valuable insights to improve performance. For instance, the information generated by security and surveillance systems can be used to manage other facility services, like cleaning provision, more effectively. If a room isn’t used as much as others, it may not require the same regularity or intensity of cleaning.

“As a company, we’ve continued to grow by assessing what our customers and the market need and want, and delivering on this. Technology is the enabler of greater efficiency, but it needs to be supported by a solid understanding of an organisation’s environment.”

The future-proofed technology solutions can benefit many industries but are particularly suitable for critical environments such as the utilities, security, health and transportation sectors, as well as the corporate and manufacturing sectors which rely heavily on technology systems.

The new division enhances Grosvenor Services’ comprehensive facilities services offering for its customers and can also be offered as a stand-alone solution for all business sectors.

In response to a new report from the CIPD, which said that only a quarter (26%) of employers see wellbeing as a priority, soft services and contract cleaning specialist, Facilicom wants to see a wider appreciation of the economic and social case for giving more consideration to workers.

The CIPD report, Growing the health and well-being agenda: From first steps to full potential, shows that although ‘…there are impressive performance, engagement and health gains to be made from well- rounded wellbeing strategies’ the lack of focus on wellbeing means that the ‘average cost per UK employee of sickness absence alone has now hit £554 a year’.

Jan-Hein Hemke, Managing Director of Facilicom UK & Ireland, explained: “Treating employees well can sometimes be seen as a luxury and something that businesses can’t afford to do. I disagree, on a moral and financial level, and say it’s something they can’t afford not to do. We know that by treating our colleagues well they are more committed and dedicated to their work and our customers see the benefit of our approach.

“Investing in wellbeing and encouraging colleagues to stay for the longer term can also reduce business overheads; job role churn is minimised consequently reducing costs in recruitment, training and on new uniforms. Our investment in our people is a key part of what makes our business successful and sustainable.

”As a family business we want to do the right thing by the people we work with and positively impact their lives and the community around us.”
