FES FM; Committed to Knowledge and Skills Development

FES FM demonstrated a long-term, strategic commitment to learning and career development with clear evidence of how its investment contributed to a sustained improvement in business performance. FES FM has created a wide-ranging L&D programme both to attract people into the FM sector and to develop the technical and managerial capabilities of its staff. The judges were impressed with FES FM’s collaborative approach with education partners such as Forth Valley College and Heriot-Watt University, and with the board’s continuing desire to better understand, evaluate and control its investment in L&D in the future.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: JLL; The JLL Property and Asset Management Academy

Following its merger with King Sturge in 2011, JLL took the opportunity to re-evaluate its approach to learning and career development in its Property and Asset Management (PAM) business. Through the creation of the PAM Training Academy, the development of a custom learning management system, and its status as a BIFM Recognised Centre
for FM qualifications – a first in the industry – JLL is taking an innovative and ambitious approach with the potential for implementation on a global scale.
