Making a Real Difference

 Hello Facility Managers

“Today is World FM Day, and we would like to thank you for you selfless service to the worldwide FM Community. Your unprecedented adaptability, collaboration and steadfast commitment have contributed significantly to the safety and development of workplace strategies for all those who depend on the built environment.
Many of you know that a changing paradigm has dramatically accelerated due to a renewed focus on key FM emerging topics. Specifically, sustainability, resilience and corporate responsibility are now center stage for leaders worldwide. These topics significantly impact corporate decision making, and the Facility Manager stands at a crossroad where they all converge.
Expanding your skill set with the integration of IOT, Smart digitization technology with key corporate strategies will provide an golden opportunity to increase the value of the Facility Manager within any organization. We want to prepare FM’s for what’s ahead and for you to boldly lead into the future.
Thank You FM’s for “Making a Real Difference”. Your dedication has enabled us to emerge from the pandemic and will carry us through to a brighter tomorrow”
