Australia, 21 November 2019 – Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life services, has taken home the Occupant Safety & Wellbeing and People & Productivity awards at this year’s leading industry event.

The annual FM Industry Awards for Excellence recognises the best in facilities management to highlight an industry which works to ensure the safety, security and sustainability of the built environment.  

Paul Amato, Sodexo Director FM Platform Australia, said the awards were recognition of the company’s commitment to reshaping modern facilities management practices and support of greater efficiencies and better service to workers and staff onsite.  

Paul Amato, Director FM Platform, Sodexo Australia: “We’re proud of this achievement and hope to continue to set benchmarks for facilities management excellence through our quality of life services. It’s a true credit to Sodexo’s employees and leadership to be formally recognised in this year’s FM Industry Awards for Excellence. The awards are a testament to the company’s leadership, innovation and service in Australia’s FM sector,” he said. 


Sodexo was presented the Occupant Safety & Wellbeing award for its specialised Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Improvement Program which provided solutions to the aging assets being used by residents in six villages across Western Australia.  

The HVAC Program identified the issues relating to the aging assets regarding air quality and presented a cost-efficient solution. Since the ductwork was cleaned and coated, residents noticed a change in the environment, including the air being fresher and easier to breathe.  


Sodexo was presented the People & Productivity award for its initiative to achieve greater efficiencies in communication between their offices and client’s facilities.  

Sodexo’s Technical Services team implemented technology solutions using an Internet-of-Things framework to enable them to remotely capture asset condition, performance and data across multiple communication platforms. 

Sodexo sponsored the Industry Innovation award and congratulated Blue IoT on winning the category.
