Facilities management service provider the Servest Group has joined major business lobbying and networking organisation the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).
Set up in order to provide a clearer voice for businesses on a national and international level, the CBI boasts over 240,000 companies as members, ranging from family-owned start-ups through to FTSE 100 organisations.
With a team of 90 economic and policy specialists, the CBI makes use of political access to tackle policy changes and to put its members in contact with key influencers.
Ability to influence Government policy
“We joined the CBI because we want to be consulted on and influence Government policies that have a direct impact on our business and the wider facilities management sector,” explained Rob Legge, Servest’s CEO for the UK and Europe.
Richard Tunnicliffe, director of the CBI in the East of England, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Servest into CBI membership. They come on board at a time when we are seeing really positive signs of economic recovery in most sectors of the economy.”
Tunnicliffe continued: “Servest’s knowledge and expertise in the FM sector will add clout to the CBI’s work in a number of important areas. In turn, Servest will be able to participate in our networks and have an influence on the sectors in which they operate.”
