Initiated in 2008 by Global FM, the aim of World FM Day is to raise the profile of the FM profession, not just in local markets, but anywhere FMs influence the health, safety, productivity and well-being of people who utilize the built environment.
This year’s theme is “Building Resilience for the Future,” focusing on facility management’s role in keeping businesses operational through risk mitigation, continuity plans, sustainability and energy management. The goal is to elevate the facility manager’s ability to adapt and respond to shifts in business, politics, energy consumption, extreme weather and challenging economic conditions.
Planning your day:
This year the whole week of June 8 will be used to recognize World FM Day, adding more opportunities to formally celebrate the profession.
Be it a formal panel seminar, a staff office lunch, a social media chat or a client networking event, World FM Day provides a catalyst to engage hundreds of individuals, companies, associations and partners in celebrating their successes and showing the world the important contributions facility management brings to the built environment.
Promoting your activity:
Let us know what you intend to do for World FM Day and we will further promote it in our social media channels — serving as both information sharing and as an inspiration to others who are looking for great ways to get involved.
