Group Membership

Become a BIFM Investor in FM Professional Development

The BIFM Group Membership Scheme is designed to help employers of facilities management professionals to recognise, reward and support their professional development.† This helps to build strong and effective FM teams.

Through the scheme, you as an employer can nominate team members to become individual members of BIFM. This investment by employers supports the professional development of FMs within their organisation.

Employers can benchmark the competence of FM teams using the membership grading system and the BIFM professional competences. The BIFM membership grading system establishes a pathway for personal development for FM professionals. It gives a framework to ensure FM skills and competences reflect business needs and requirements.

Through the scheme your organisation becomes a BIFM Investor in FM Professional Development. This recognises and signifies your commitment to FM excellence and business improvement through your people.
