The demands of the FM job are intense, the stakes high and the credit often elusive. FM professionals go about their business solving problems and keeping their organizations running in the background. On top of that, a functional working environment is taken for granted, so their efforts to keep it that way, including the skills and complexities it requires, aren’t usually noticed or recognized as an important part of the organization, usually just as a cost centre.
Facilities represent a large part of any organization’s assets and expenses, yet don’t typically receive the attention other parts of the organization receive. Having a professional facility management resource to provide strategic direction and stewardship is critical to getting results, lowering costs and minimizing risk.
