We've been working the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) as insight partners, following the research we did for them last year to explore the future of the FM profession.
On March 1, BIFM made the landmark announcement that it intended to change its name to the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management. This comes at a time where the notion of ‘workplace’ continues to receive increasing business attention. Inspired by exemplars leading the way, organisations are starting to see the opportunity to rethink their working environments to positively influence their organisational performance.
However, because workplace means different things to different people, it can be misunderstood or undervalued. Out latest knowledge report, Embracing workplace to move FM forward, seeks to raise awareness and understanding of workplace amongst practitioners, and to encourage them to think about what workplace means for them. Written for a wide readership, with a mixture of provocative thinking and practical tools, the report explores the workplace opportunity and how we can take advantage of it.
We'd love to hear what you think of the report. Please get in touch to let us know.
