New issue of FMJ magazine: Workspace as a Tool

Jan. 19, 2017
Whether your organization is interested in culture-driven recruitment, improved space management or achieving a green certification, assessing the current state and outlook of the workplace is an essential part of the journey.

While workplace ideals can vary, the end goal for facility professionals is the same — to support the organization’s people, place, processes and technology.

With this in mind, the January/February 2017 issue of FMJ, IFMA's official magazine, explores how FMs can align business objectives with occupant needs to define the “place” of workplace.

Articles include insights on ​flexible workspaces and support tools​, ​leveraging design to foster productivity, recruitment and retention, workplace strategy and space ​utilization, interior design​, ergonomics, occupant comfort, standards and more.

Start reading the January/February 2017 “Workspace as a Tool” issue of FMJ at fmj.ifma.org/publication/?i=378064.

FMJ is the official magazine of IFMA, written by and for professionals who develop and maintain productive workplaces. It is the only industry publication that draws on the collective knowledge of IFMA’s highly connected global network of FM thought leaders to offer insights on current and upcoming facility management trends. FMJ has been published continually since 1988, and articles offer useful takeaways and globally applicable best practices to help facility managers optimize the work environment for the people who operate within the buildings they support.​ Learn more and subscribe at www.ifma.org/fmj.
