The new FM ISO 41001

The new ISO 41001 standard due to be released in 2018 can help you to improve your performance and gain competitive advantage. Operationally this standard offers a real opportunity for organisations, that have not yet realised the benefits of professionally managing their facilities, to work through the potential benefits for their organisation with consistency and precision no matter where in the world they are located.

Stan Mitchell, CEO of Key Facilities Management International and a past Chair of BIFM, has been spear-heading the committee that is developing the standard. He will not only give an overview of the standard developed to date, but profile the Management System Standard and the potential impact that it will have for the sector.

The FM Business Confidence Monitor Results

For the past three years, BIFM has developed an annual survey with Barclays and publishers i-FM to measure buoyancy across the FM industry and gauge the current thinking and attitudes that sit at the heart of this dynamic and growing sector.

With the facilities management sector estimated to be worth £121.8 billion a year to the UK economy (Mintel, 2016), the FM Business Confidence Monitor offers a meaningful insight into perceived business performance in the UK marketplace as a whole.

For 2017, the survey of professionals from the facilities management sector in the UK found that 62 per cent describe the facilities management business environment as ‘positive’ or ‘very positive’ (the same as 2016). When asked how they perceived the market to change over the next 12 months, 40 per cent expect it to improve, while the majority at just over half, 51 per cent, expected it to remain the same, with only 8 per cent believing it will deteriorate.

In this webinar and find out more about the results and join the debate about the issues raised in this years report.
