Our latest paper, written in conjunction with IFMA, explores this topic in great detail. Get your copy today.
Research suggests that executives often perceive FM as a support function, with minimal strategic value. As a result, facility managers have been isolated from the C-suite, with few opportunities to align with the core business strategy.
Fueled by a demand for increasingly employee-centric workplaces and rapid technological advances, facility managers are more equipped than ever to partner with business leaders to impact productivity and, ultimately, profitability.To adopt a more strategic role, however, facility managers must drive changes in how they work, across processes, people and strategy. The first step in the process is establishing a foundation of operational excellence. Once this groundwork is established, facility managers have a wide range of tools at their disposal to partner more effectively with the business—ranging from outsourcing the FM function to implementing cutting-edge technology solutions to mastering soft skills.
