Leading environmental services provider FCC Environment is offering its customers a suite of FM services to help the festive season run smoothly.
From keeping forecourts and carparks ice-free to creating a charming and festive atmosphere, FCC’s account managers can create flexible packages to suit all businesses.
FCC Environment’s Lynsey Mardlin (Head of Sales – C&I) said, “For Facilities Managers, winter can bring a whole host of additional responsibilities. Duty of care requires overnight snow clearance and proactive gritting, while visitors, customers and employees expect interior décor to reflect the festive spirit.”
Fortunately, new ways of working mean FMs don’t have to micromanage every aspect of the Christmas workload. By outsourcing some of the more time-consuming tasks, FMs can free up work and social time to increase workplace wellbeing.
FCC’s new gritting and snow clearance service protects businesses against negligence claims and financial and reputational risk. Delivered in partnership with award-winning service providers, FCC uses the Met Office High Density Open Road forecast to monitor conditions across sites, and environmentally-friendly rock salt to eliminate residual mess and blocked drains.
Keeping roads and footpaths clean and safe presents a positive image that can be bolstered by FCC’s corporate planting service. Creating a year-round positive image, corporate planting enables FMs to foster wellbeing in the workplace. By popular demand, FCC Environment’s interior and exterior planting service is being extended to include Christmas decoration.
The building and environment have a huge impact on employee wellbeing, and Christmas is a special opportunity to create stunning displays inside and out. FCC Environment’s attractive designs elevate a space and improve the perceptions of customers, visitors and employees who appreciate the level of care and attention to detail.
The all-new FCC sustainable decoration service enhances offices and retail spaces with festive features and stylish Christmas trees. Customers can choose from off-the-shelf or bespoke designs that reflect their company’s branding. FCC designs, installs and collects its festive décor, enabling customers to create outstanding memorable impressions with ease.
Peter Cundall (Head of Commercial) from FCC said: “Workload and stress are regularly linked, and it’s important we address the increasing demands on FMs at this time of year. By letting FCC Environment take the additional strain at Christmas, FMs can focus on the bigger picture and enjoy time with their colleagues and families.
“It can be tempting to relegate seasonal responsibilities as ‘nice to have’ rather than ‘need to have’. Our combination of services, including cleaning, external services, waste management and gritting means we can ensure service levels are enhanced, as well as making our customers’ premises look their festive best for Christmas.
“FCC’s services add a little luxury to proceedings meaning FMs can focus on their core business. Our dedicated Account Managers work in partnership with our clients to ensure premises are perfectly gift-wrapped for the festive season.”
