At Dolphin Solutions, we understand the importance of the facilities management (FM) industry and the role it plays in enabling positive experiences in the workplace. Facilities Managers are often described as the unsung heroes of the built environment as they ensure the safe running of a business, dedicated to maintaining the efficiency and usability of our workplaces.
As we know, ensuring a clean and tidy workplace is vital to any business. The organisation and hygiene levels of a business directly affect its efficiency, productivity and morale of employees. Research from Jeffrey Campbell, PhD chair of FM programmes at Brigham Young University, reported that 88% of employees say that productivity, concentration and learning is hampered in dirty and dull workplaces.
Today, 17th of May, World FM Day celebrates the global facilities management (FM) community, looking at how facilities teams enable positive experiences around the globe.
To celebrate, we’ve looked at some of the ways we think facilities teams are unsung heroes and why they are the key to a successful business.
