17 October 2023 | Updated 19 October 2023

Over 920 attendees gathered at JW Marriott Grosvenor House London to celebrate the 2023 IWFM Impact Awards.

86 finalists, including organisations, initiatives and professionals, that had demonstrated recent excellence in workplace and facilities management were recognised in the ceremony, hosted by actor, producer and writer Sally Phillips. 

Reflecting on the awards, IWFM CEO Linda Hausmanis said: “On the 30th anniversary of IWFM, I’d like to express my admiration for all entrants and the valuable work they’ve demonstrated. The Awards categories touch on some of the most pressing issues of our time, so to witness such a wide variety of beneficial outcomes attests to the importance of workplace and facilities management. It’s vital to recognise the central role of professionals in helping businesses achieve success and effectively deliver.

“Despite ever-changing conditions, I look forward to seeing how the profession continues to overcome challenges and make the most of opportunities. I’d like to express a huge thank you to our sponsors who made the Awards possible, especially our headline sponsor, Waste to Wonder, for their dedication to Corporate Social Responsibility and enabling businesses to pursue sustainability. Well done to all winners and finalists, plus a massive thanks to our judges, organisers and attendees.”
