A Smarter Facilities Management and Real Estate approach

Leaders responsible for Facilities Management and Real Estate in their organisation will have learnt it’s less about bricks and mortar and more about keeping their people safe, secure, warm and fed so their physical environment improves the quality of their working life, feeds their productivity and retains them for longer.  It can often feel like navigating the seven seas, Facilities Management is complex and when things change, they change quickly – and a perfect storm can brew.

If your second biggest cost is Facilities Management, you should be demanding first class advice

In most organisations second to people costs is Facilities Management and property. There are so many pressures facing Facilities Management functions – Am I getting the right value for money on my Facilities Management spend? Is the quality as good and as innovative as what our competitors are getting? Are we fully compliant with the law? Are my team up to the job? To name but a few.  Things are further compounded by the complexities of the Facilities Management marketplace with myriad of small suppliers through to global providers and biggest isn’t always best!

How integrated are your Facilities Management and Wellness programmes?

We could learn a lot from the Finns and the Danes who once again top the World Happiness Survey, whilst the UK languishes down in 19th place. We firmly believe that the Facilities Management function of the future is one that genuinely embraces premises and people and is directly involved in providing working environments that demonstrably improve the working lives of all occupants. We always ask our clients

Do their business plans for Facilities Management (FM) actively consider the well-being of all building users as a key element for the provision and delivery of services?
Do they work with IT, Corporate Real Estate, Procurement, FM and HR on well-being issues?
Do their buildings have adequate provision for social and interaction space (break out areas, amenity space, sports facilities)?
Do they have programmes in place to ensure they embrace the needs of all ages, abilities, genders & generations working in their building?
Do their current service specifications and supplier management processes take account of well-being?
Does part of their selection of suppliers when tendering for FM services assess their own well-being programmes?
