It’s no surprise that the theme of resilience has been chosen as the focus for this year’s World FM Day. Despite many of the world’s economies continuing to show positive signs of recovery over the last couple of years, the themes of uncertainty and an accelerating world, be they political, economic, technological or social, continue to underpin the environment where we all now work and live. But when we think about resilience in relation to facilities management, it’s worth pausing to consider what this means for the FM profession and for the way we view facilities management now and how we see it developing in the future.READ MORE >

As we head to the BIFM’s annual conference, ThinkFM, the focus is clearly on how FM can work to add competitive advantage in the workplace and will no doubt continue the wider debate around the convergence of FM and HR and the recent workplace conversation. One element of the workplace that appears to have been brought into very sharp focus recently, due to hitting the national headlines, is the effect of the growing amount of sedentary work that we do as a society. This was discussed at last week’s BIFM WIFM and BIFM Workplace joint SIG which featured a presentation from Gavin Bradley from Get Britain Standing.READ MORE >

Thoughts around the Shared parental leave regulations….
In light of the new regulations, in respect to the Children and Families Act 2014, allowing parents to have more flexibility in respect of caring for their children, the question is how it will affect our business and the wider FM industry?

Over recent weeks I have been hearing, reading and seeing a lot about the next generation of workers and what this means for the workspace and life within it. The Y generation, or so called “#millennials” as they are known are now becoming the new life blood of our workspaces up and down the country and it is clear that this does and will continue to have an impact on our workspaces, particularly for those leading businesses who thrive on continuing to recruit the best talent.READ MORE >
