“Celebrating global ISO FM Standards”
15 May 2019 | Events between 13-17 May 2019
Once a year, the global facilities management community comes together to celebrate the FM industry. World FM Day 2019 is on 15 May, but we encourage the worldwide FM community to celebrate any day of the week of 13-17 May.
This year’s theme is Celebrating global ISO FM Standards, which acknowledges the milestone of creating the ISO 41000 series of Standards and Technical Report focussed on the global FM industry.
“Developing ISO Standards is a massive game changer for our industry,” said Duncan Waddell, Chairman of Global FM. “These standards represent a significant step forward in the standardisation of FM management professional practices internationally.”
“Facilities Management is a US$1.15 trillion global industry, with 65,000 professional and industry participants worldwide,” said Mr Waddell. “World FM Day celebrates the significant contribution that FM makes to the global economy.”
The purpose of World FM Day, initiated by Global FM, is to recognise the vital work that facilities management professionals and the facilities management industry contribute to business worldwide. It aims to raise the profile of the FM profession, not just in member regions, but anywhere FMs influence the health, safety, productivity and well-being of people who utilise the built environment.
It facilitates global knowledge sharing to promote the FM profession, and allows facilities management professionals to reflect on their achievements over the past year and celebrate each other’s successes.
There are events happening all over the globe; find out more at globalfm.org/events/. Tell us how you plan to celebrate World FM day, and we’ll post it on our interactive website map.
