Each year, there is a celebration around the world of all things Facilities Management (FM); it’s World FM Day.
It’s a day that the International Facilities Management Association (IFMA), along with Global FM, set aside to harness the power of many to raise the profile of the FM profession.
This year’s theme, “creating, sharing, learning,” resonates with us at Sodexo as we strive to create new ways to look at FM, share best practices and learn from the great things we are accomplishing with our clients.
The role of the Facilities Management Professional is changing as the FM function is earning a seat at the strategy table in more and more organizations.
Corporate Real Estate executives have a chance to shape the future of their organization.
It’s an exciting time not only from the cost and efficiency perspective, but also the asset and infrastructure planning perspective, and perhaps, most importantly, delivering increased performance of individuals and organizations.
With a climate of change afoot, it’s important to look at things differently, and that’s just what we are doing — from creating a way to measure impact in Quality of Life per Square Foot, to sharing our industry insights via our Workplace Trends Report.
For these reasons, our team of talented and committed professionals is excited to use World FM Day as a platform to celebrate all of the amazing work going on in the world of FM and to learn from other forward thinking professionals in our industry.
We know that facilities management is a critical component in caring for the assets and infrastructure of a business, but it’s also critical for employee performance and engagement.
Believe me when I say C-Suites know that a company can only be as good as the engaging, innovative, and thriving environment they provide their employees.
But, whether it’s an energy management solution, an infrastructure renewal project, or a facility redesign to optimize work space, the conversations are taking place at all levels.
Today’s facilities solutions are mission critical to an organization’s culture and ultimately their future.
