The deal includes a number of innovative service solutions including a workplace hygiene programme – PRISM and COVID-19 mitigation services from Portfolio, and Pareto expanding its women in engineering programme with an electrical apprenticeship.

Sophie Wilkinson, Head of Operations and PMO, Hearst UK said: “Since moving to Leicester Square in 2018, we have been keen to align our service partners to our new way of working; being able to deliver high cleaning and maintenance standards, whilst also operating as efficiently and effectively as possible. In Portfolio and Pareto we found two service partners that completely understood our ethos, high standards and approach to inclusivity and were able to demonstrate that we could create a true partnership.”

Antony Law, Managing Director, Portfolio by Churchill added: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Hearst UK and see our shared beliefs around inclusivity and standards create the right energy and atmosphere throughout their London property portfolio. Our partnership with Hearst UK and Pareto will, I’m sure, create opportunity for our team members as well as demonstrate the good that can come from like-minded teams working together to make the best workplace for everyone.”

Andrew Hulbert, Managing Director, Pareto FM commented: “We’ve been an admirer of Hearst UK for some time and aspired to be like them. They are a genuine world leader in diversity and inclusion strategy and genuinely lead from the front. We applauded their approach to LGBT+ and Black Lives Matter and watched with inspiration as they help to shape the world we live in. The opportunity to partner with a brand like Hearst UK is incredible and we look forward to this partnership. We are particularly excited to grow our women in engineering programme through this contract with the additional of an electrical apprentice.”
