IWFM Impact Awards 2021 Winners Revealed
12 October 2021
 

FM’s contribution was celebrated at the annual IWFM Impact Awards 2021 in-person, for the first time since 2019.

Healthcare, wellbeing and sustainability dominated the winner's list at London’s JW Marriott Grosvenor House, where 15 winners were honoured.

In a ceremony hosted by comedian and TV regular Mark Watson, 63 finalists vied for the hotly competed categories with the winners reflecting the fundamental contribution that the workplace and facilities sector is making to contemporary challenges at every level, from frontline care to smart innovation.

New IWFM Chair Mark Whittaker, in his first formal engagement since assuming the role on 1 October, paid tribute to outgoing Chair of Judges Julie Kortens, stepping down after two years in the role, and welcomed her successor, David Sharp.

Mark said: ‘The role of Chair of Judges is a crucial ambassadorial role for the Institute and its many demands require significant commitment. We are indebted to Julie for her outstanding service to our profession, in particular her role in safeguarding the robust standards of judging and ensuring that the IWFM Awards continues to be recognised as the gold standard within the industry. I also want to extend a very warm welcome to David Sharp, who will succeed Julie as Chair. A fellow of the Institute and long-standing lead judge, I know that David’s passionate advocacy for our profession will serve us well.’

David Sharp, CEO of International Workplace, said of his appointment: ‘I look forward with huge excitement to helping the IWFM Impact Awards continue to shine a light on the core contribution that workplace and facilities professionals make to our economy at every level today, from front line care to sustainable innovation.’
