Strategic Facilities Management Summit 2023
A company cannot function efficiently if its facilities and physical assets are in poor shape. Conceived as a support function, Facility Management has expanded rapidly to a strategic role that covers all aspects of buildings and workspace security, health and well-being, fire safety, maintenance, inspection, and asset Management. In addition, it is also responsible for ensuring compliance with all relevant laws, regulations, and safety standards. All this while meeting sustainability objectives within efficient economic frameworks and assessing the impact of facilities on business operations and ROI.
Owing to the pandemic, managing a facility in a hybrid work culture requires careful consideration of the physical environment, employee safety, and compliance with local laws and regulations. Facility leaders need to be proactive, organized, and knowledgeable about the environment and the needs of the hybrid workforce.
