World FM Day 2020 - A Day Of Thanks

World FM Day 2020 - A Day Of Thanks

Today marks World FM Day, celebrating the significant contribution that facilities management makes to the global economy.

During these challenging times, it seems particularly apt to praise the role of FM key workers in contributing to the safety, health and wellbeing of people all over the world. 

It’s often said that if a facilities management team are doing their job well, most would never consider the countless things they are responsible for. Every day throughout this pandemic, the FM community have continued to keep our buildings safe and functional, behind the scenes and on the front line of public safety.

From all at ThisWeekinFM, we would like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in the industry at this time, and always, for their tireless and important work. 

Please join us in praising the facilities management community over on our LinkedIn page, and give thanks to a colleague on this celebratory day.
