Manifesto Time - Spare a Sec for Survey!

06 March 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

The Building Futures Group has launched its FM Manifesto Survey. The Survey is open to all involved in the FM industry and the organisation’s members who represent over 70% of the UK FM sector. The Manifesto is a first for UK FM. The survey will help The Building Futures Group to refine and deliver a Manifesto which raises the profile of FM to decision makers and key stakeholders.

A spokesperson for the team behind the Survey and the Manifesto said: "For too long the FM Sector has been seen and sees itself as an invisible industry, leading to falling profit margins, increased client expectations, lower resources for FM services and a wealth of other issues. The FM Manifesto continues The Building Futures Group’s aim to raise standards and awareness of the FM. Only by engaging with MPs, ministers and other decision makers can this be changed."

"All too often those in FM talk about the ‘race to the bottom’ and how the sector is not recognised for the essential services it provides. And all too often various FM commentators are critical of industry associations’ initiatives to improve the lot of the FM sector. Such commentators do nothing to help the industry with such actions and in fact, are happy to bite the hand that feeds them and their livelihoods. Perhaps it is time to for them to stop promoting negative agendas and support the positive initiatives being developed by a range of stakeholders in the FM Sector."

The Manifesto is the start of the Group’s public affairs work in the build-up to the Election. Other public affairs initiatives will be announced once the voting is over - all designed in the interest of the UK FM sector.

So for your chance to help shape the future of the UK FM sector take a few moments to complete the FM Manifesto Survey today, by doing so you will help shape a brighter future for us all. Click Here
