The FM and Workplace industry and profession

The International Organisation for Standardisation defines facilities management (FM) as the “organizational function which integrates people, place and process within the built environment with the purpose of improving the quality of life of people and the productivity of the core business.” 

Workplace and facilities professionals are responsible for services that enable and support business performance. 

Roles cover management of a wide range of areas including: health and safety, risk, business continuity, procurement, sustainability, space planning, energy, property and asset management. They typically oversee activities like catering, cleaning, building maintenance, environmental services, security and reception.

Beyond the built environment, workplace recognises the joint responsibility of facilities management, IT and human resources to achieve optimal performance between people, technology and work space, anywhere that work happens, including hospitals, hotels, tourist attractions and many other types of facilities.

I thought it was really nice to see everyone joining in and enjoying the course all the way to the end. So I think credit goes to the trainer. Well done Martin.

Reinforces what I learnt doing my degree but probably in context of my role/organisation.
