Sodexo walked away with two accolades at the 2021 PFM Partnership Awards held on Wednesday 03 November at The Brewery, London

Both awards went to Sodexo’s corporate services team for its collaborative work with its client, AstraZeneca. First to be announced at the first live presentation of the PFM Partnership Awards since 2019 was the Partners in Corporate Social Responsibility award for all the fantastic work they have done in delivering all aspects of CSR, from supporting community initiatives, the ongoing support of both corporate charities and the innovative way that they have continued to provide and accelerate their social value activity over the past year. 

Next up was the Partners in Covid Response - Large Estates award, which the team won for their response to the Covid pandemic, particularly adapting their services at pace, demonstrating great agility, while continuing to protect both patients and their people, enabling AstraZeneca sites to remain operative, and ensuring all colleagues were safe in their place of work.

Julie Ennis, CEO of corporate services at Sodexo UK & Ireland, said: 

Well done to all our winners at this year’s PFM Partnership awards. These awards give essential recognition to our industry which has risen in prominence throughout the Covid-19 pandemic when our teams continued to deliver excellence every day. I am delighted to hear that yet again our partnership with our clients AstraZeneca has been recognised. This fantastic partnership also received an award at the 2021 IWFM awards, and to win these awards too is fantastic news and is representative of the hard work, collaborative working and dedication of our people. Congratulations to all involved.

Mia Loberg, Director Supplier Relationships at AstraZeneca, said: 

2020 was an extraordinarily challenging year for us all, and the Facilities Management industry faced a multitude of obstacles to overcome due to the pandemic. We are incredibly proud of our AstraZeneca and Sodexo partnership team, who continued to support the business through these challenges, whilst maintaining the focus on workplace experience, supporting AstraZeneca’s organisational mission to continue to be ‘a great place to work’.
