OSCFM announces multi-million pound five-year deal with London's leading serviced office space provider
Office Space Cleaning & Facilities Management, a leading workspace cleaning & hygiene firm, together with Office Space in Town (OSiT), one of London's leading flexible and serviced office space providers, have announced the start of a new multi-million-pound five-year contract.
The deal reflects the successful long-standing cooperation between the two companies, and OSiT commitment to making workspace cleanliness a key extension of its ongoing Environment Social and Governance efforts.
Encouraging workers to return to their offices is key to the revival of London's businesses. Yet a recent OSCFM's recent survey showed that basic hygiene gripes are stopping over a third of employees from returning to the office.
OSiT is one of London's leading serviced office space providers, with a £220 million portfolio of five buildings in the Capital. The new deal will help the company support its corporate tenants as they strive to encourage their staff to return to the office, at a time when many are still hesitant following the pandemic.
With only some 70% of workers having returned to their desks by the Summer, according to data released by Google, this latest cleaning deal between OSCFM and OSiT, is an illustration of how businesses can help each other in this area.
It also supports wider moves to have workers return to the office and addresses any hygiene concerns, which are clearly still a factor in discouraging staff from returning to their desks.
James Carver, managing director of OSCFM says: "OSCFM has been proud over the last few years to be OSiT's chosen cleaning partner, and this new multi-million-pound deal reaffirms our companies' commitment to ensuring that employees have access to hygienic workplaces. We look forward to continuing to ensure that workers returning to the office feel confident in the cleanliness, safety, and resilience of their workplace."
Georgia Sandom, operations and ESG Director of OSiT adds: "This new deal with OSC reaffirms OSiT's long-standing commitment to its Environmental, Social, and Governance pledge aimed at both improving its cleaning operations. Over the last few years, OSC has been indispensable to ensuring that OSiT meets the highest standards of workplace cleanliness and hygiene, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with James and his team to champion workspace cleanliness."
Office Space in Town, one of the UK's most experienced serviced office providers, combines distinctive corporate offices with exceptional business support services across London, Northampton, and Cardiff. The company's largest presence is in London where it currently operates six serviced offices across prime locations in the capital, including Liverpool Street, Monument, St Paul's and Farringdon, Waterloo and Blackfriars.
