Happy World Facilities Management Day

The purpose of World FM Day is to recognise and celebrate the vital work that workplace and facilities managers and the wider industry contributes to business worldwide. It aims to raise the profile of the facilities profession anywhere that its practitioners influence the health, safety, productivity, and wellbeing of people who use the built environment.

This time last year we were acknowledging the “New Emergency Service” on the frontline against COVID-19 keeping the key health, education, food, transport and utilities sectors safe and clean. A year on and the last 12 months has seen our FM heroes continue to be in the spotlight as they have adapted service delivery and compliance activity to changing circumstances – professionally and with a minimum of fuss.

Today, as lockdown restrictions are eased, FM teams are faced with the challenges of devising and implementing return to the workplace plans to meet the new strategic needs of their business or customer. I am confident they will do this with similar expertise and success.

What an exciting time to be developing a career in FM. Here at Catch 22 we shall certainly be encouraging individuals to embrace the opportunities resulting from the pandemic whilst attracting fresh talent into the industry we love.

To discuss how Catch 22 can introduce you to FM talent or support you in the re-opening of your workplace please do book a call with me here. In the meantime….
