Hoorah For World FM Day

FM - Enabling Positive Experiences.

May 16 - it's World FM Day - celebrating what we all know...just how important the FM profession is to the success of nearly every business around the world.

The Day aims to raise the profile of FM by promoting facilities management’s ideals, not only within the profession and industry but also among governments and the general business community - and this is done on a global scale.

 

World FM Day 2018

This year World FM Day will be celebrated on 16 May. The theme is 'Enabling Positive Experiences', highlighting how facilities management plays an integral role in positive customer, client and employee experience in all sectors, whether it is residential, sport, workplace, healthcare or any other.

 

FM Around the World

BIFM have enlisted Ambassadors around the world to help raise awareness of World FM Day. BIFM believes that the best way to inspire the next generation of FMs is to hear from the people working in and driving the profession, giving an insight into what life is like behind the scenes in facilities management and how each country differs.
