Arcus FM wins Kimberly-Clark Golden Service Award in Social Impact Category

Arcus FM, a leading provider of technology-led, people-driven Facilities Management services, is proud to announce its achievement of winning the Kimberly-Clark Golden Service Award in the Social Impact category.

This recognition underscores Arcus’s unwavering commitment to delivering substantial social value and making a meaningful difference in the communities it serves.

The Golden Service Awards, organised by Kimberly-Clark Professional, celebrates excellence in the cleaning and FM sectors. Arcus FM’s achievement in the Social Impact category highlights its innovative and impactful initiatives that go beyond the traditional scope of facilities management.

With large number of its workforce in the Soft Services department, this division plays a crucial role in the company’s employability initiatives. Collaborating closely with various social value partners, the Soft Services department has been instrumental in helping individuals in priority groups that have barriers to entering the workforce in returning to work.

The award was won not just because of the large numbers of individuals that were supported into work, but because of the advocacy and engagement shown right through Arcus FM’s business. Eddie Manners, Head of Operations for the Soft Services department and a former service personnel member, passionately advocates for these initiatives. Eddie champions this recruitment route and leads Arcus’s Armed Forces Veteran group, providing a supportive space for members to engage socially and support social value efforts.

In the fiscal year 2022-23, Arcus extended 64 job offers to social value participants within the soft services team.

From April 2023 to March 2024, Arcus recruited 73 individuals through social value partners, including 30 individuals unemployed for 12 months or more, six individuals with disabilities, three prison leavers, three NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training), one care leaver, and one veteran.

Additionally, last year, Arcus FM also recruited 23 individuals with disabilities and 14 veterans, further demonstrating its dedication to inclusive hiring practices.

By integrating social impact into its core business strategy, Arcus FM continues to set new standards for the facilities management industry.
