Hello Workplace: Embracing the Opportunity

11-10-18 16:15 BIFM

On 5 July 2018, at our AGM, our members backed a historic recommendation from the BIFM Board; to reframe facilities management, emphasising its ability to make a real contribution to the performance of organisations, and rename the British Institute of Facilities Management the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management.

As part of a ‘manifesto for change’ launched in March, we have tasked ourselves with raising the profile of facilities management and its value more widely and helping members to improve their skills and their status to meet the needs of today’s organisations; and we’re committed to pursuing their desire for the profession to achieve Chartered Body status, confirming it as well established and capable of recognition in its own right.

Since then we have been busy transitioning our organisation into a modern professional body, fully fit to nurture and support facilities management through its next phase, fully fit to seize the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century workplace.

On 15 November, as part of Workplace Week 2018, we are hosting an evening to celebrate this new beginning as we reveal our brand-new look and outline our plans for 2019.

An expert panel will be on hand to help us to navigate this evolution as the profession gets ready to embrace the workplace opportunity.

Register your interest in this event and we’ll contact you by 2 November to confirm your place.
