IFMA staff celebrate World FM Day 2018

IFMA is joining members, partners and collaborators from around the world in a week-long celebration of facility management. World FM Day, which falls on May 16 this year, recognizes the professionals who diligently work to ensure the global built environment is effective, productive, sustainable, safe and healthy.

FM is a global industry worth US$1.1 trillion annually and employing more than 25 million people. IFMA defines FM as a profession that encompasses multiple disciplines to ensure functionality of the built environment by integrating people, place, process and technology. More information about FM, including key educational and professional development tools, is available online at www.whatisfm.com and www.fm.training.

IFMA, working in collaboration with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), is recognizing the critical contributions of FM through a valuable collection of content, educational resources and giveaways happening throughout the week. This includes support for World FM Day events around the globe — such as World Workplace in Barcelona, Spain — as well as a series of educational webinars and access to the top FM industry resources from IFMA’s Knowledge Library.
