North-West property maintenance firm provides focus on employee health & wellbeing

The award-winning property maintenance specialists, Sovini Property Services, part of The Sovini Group, have committed to their employee’s wellbeing by investing in additional welfare vehicles, adding to their rapidly growing fleet.

Sovini Property Services (SPS) was formed in 2010, initially to provide in-house repairs and maintenance to fellow Group member and registered social housing provider, One Vision Housing.

Since their inception, the company has grown to become one of the North West’s leading repairs and maintenance firms, securing multiple contracts, and adding to their growing repertoire of works.

Most recently, the unique repairs and maintenance firm announced their appointment onto Torus’s biggest framework to date which will see Sovini Property Services collaborate with HMS to maintain 40,000 homes.

The new welfare vehicles join a growing fleet, consisting of mobile and static vehicles intended to increase much-needed resources for teams on the frontline. The vehicles boast a range of features designed to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of their employees whilst taking a much-needed moment off-the-job.

Launched in late 2022, the new welfare vans have now hit the streets.

Steve Williams, Sovini Property Services Repairs and Maintenance Capital Works Manager, commented:

“Safety is at the forefront of everything we do and we are always looking for ways to put our employee and customers wellbeing first.

“As a responsible business, we have a duty of care to provide exemplary welfare facilities and by raising the level of quality within our fleet operations in this way, it demonstrates our ongoing commitment to maintain levels of best practice in safety and working conditions for all of our colleagues.”

The vehicles feature a table with seating, a sink, a microwave oven, a fridge, USB charging points, heating, and a boiling water dispenser. To the rear, the van is equipped with sanitising stations, a drying room and toilet facilities.

Through innovative leadership and health and wellbeing initiatives, Sovini Property Services achieved numerous accolades, including the Investors in People (IIP) Platinum accreditation, recognising the commitment to the health and wellbeing of their employees.
