  2. This Week in FM: World FM Day

    Comments Off on This Week in FM: World FM Day

    This week, on Wednesday May 12th, saw the world of FM unite for World FM Day. This year’s World FM Day theme was announced as ‘Celebrating FM: Standing Tall Beyond The Pandemic’ and exists to acknowledge the contribution made by facilities and workplace management.

    Cleaning and hygiene across the built environment have been under scrutiny like never before since the outbreak of the pandemic. Here at AEJ Management, we have been no different with the need to provide Covid secure workspace along with mitigating the risk of key workers unable to work from home, as a critical requirement for our staff both office and site based. Issues such as these have resulted in critical conversations from FM leaders of business and industry over the last 12 months across the country. Along with developing Covid secure environments, the supply of PPE particularly to remote workers, has been another logistical challenge that has had to be overcome.

    Learning about new technologies that are available along with implementing cost effective solutions across industry sectors has ensured the facilities manager’s job role has never been so reactive before with even more plates to have to spin than usual. Flexibility is another key requirement that a provider has had to demonstrate to a client given the nature of the service demands. Resilience has become a by product of the need to change and adapt.

    Throughout the last 12 months, the facilities management sector has never played a more important role in ensuring infrastructure and services continue at the rate to be expected.

    IWFM’s CEO Linda Hausmanis, CEO of the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management remarked, ‘The past year has seen our profession thrust into the spotlight like never before. From enabling the mass transition to homeworking to ensuring healthcare professionals can work in clean, safe environments, maintaining and securing buildings though empty of people, and more, workplace and facilities practitioners worldwide have played a key role in the response to this global crisis.’

    We’d like to thank all our maintenance and site-based operatives for their efforts and salute all those involved in the industry for their efforts across a 12 month period like no other. All working in this sector should be proud of our efforts and achievements and we at AEJ Management are no different in sharing and acknowledging those sentiments.
