World Facilities Management Day
Are you a part of a large, well-oiled building? Do you like going to the mall and enjoying all the amenities? Are you a fan of a resort because of the wonderful staff and all the conveniences it offers? Each of these are the result of the hard work of Facilities Management professionals who ensure that the facility runs smoothly and people have everything they need. World Facilities Management Day is a celebration of the role these professionals play and their importance. The end user may not even notice them.
You won’t have to think about all the things Facility Managers do every day if he is doing his job correctly. The Facility Manager ensures that your mall’s restrooms are clean and well maintained, that traffic flows smoothly through the garage, and that all malfunctioning displays, lights, and other elements work properly. This is not the maintenance crew or the janitors. It is the Facility Manager who coordinates all staff and ensures that everything runs smoothly.
These tireless professionals ensure that our buildings are safe, clean and up to date. The FM team is the one who plans ahead when a mall’s CCTV system is updated. This means that more security guards and cleaners are needed to ensure the building is available for peak times. In any facility that is large enough to require a Facility Manager, they are available to keep an eye on it all and ensure it runs smoothly.
World Facilities Management Day is a celebration of these professionals and the hard work they do to ensure that our vacations, work, and other locations are safe and comfortable.
Many of these amazing people are not recognized. You might want to identify the Facility Manager at your workplace or favorite places to relax and show appreciation for their efforts to make it a safe and pleasant environment. Spend some time researching Facility Managers to learn more about their work and perhaps make a case for one in your workplace. A skilled Facility Manager makes everything run smoothly.
