Workplace services provider Sodexo Ireland has won four awards at the 2024 Facilities Management (FM) Awards, winning Total FM Service Provider of the Year, Facilities Management CSR Initiative of the Year, Best People Development in Facilities Management and account manager Michael Galkin winning FM Service Professional of the Year.

Taking place in Dublin on 13 March, Sodexo was the big winner on the night as the only company to win four awards. According to the judges, as Total FM Service Provider of the Year, the company was lauded for its ability to retain employees and clients while showcasing a progressive and innovative approach, highlighting its strategic effectiveness in the FM industry.

Its CSR initiative, which focuses on the mental health of young people through a partnership with A Lust for Life, demonstrates a profound and tangible impact and showcases a remarkable effort to educate children on emotional resilience, literacy and awareness and address mental health proactively.

Sodexo’s ‘Promote from Within’ strategy won it the Best People Development in Facilities Management Award while Michael Galkin won FM Service Professional of the Year for his keen insight into future FM trends and sustainability.

Launched in 2014, the Facilities Management Awards is the premier awards programme in recognising the excellent work carried out by Ireland’s facility and property management teams and companies.
