Facilities management and awards
As I am exploring the asset management issues a bit further, and especially facility management, I saw that the British Institute of Facilities Management has annual awards. So far, I knew about other kinds of awards, like CEO or manager of the year, but there they reward the Facility Manager of the year.
Of course, the idea behind these kind of awards is that they reward people for innovative use of FM methodologies, how they create dynamic solutions and how they integrate FM into the organisation’s strategic influencing and decision-making process and senior corporate structure (BIFM, online).
Thus, it is of no wonder why the area of FM has such an importance for companies and the job of faility mnagers is of equal importance with that of other managers.
For more information see the website: http://www.bifm.org.uk/bifm/events/awards/Awards2012/FMofYear
That’s also the first time I hear about that.
To create business excellence, innovative and creative solutions are crucial. I’ve read a lot of articles on consulting and this is exactly what they are looking for, people with creative and innovative ideas to make successful and excellent organizations, in terms of property (FM managers), services or any other asset. They consider these skills as one of the most important ones to advice organizations. Of course, a good CEO/leader is important but the CEO can’t do everything by him/herself and a combination of skills is always beneficial.
Anyway, thanks for the info ☺
