WF2017: Challenging Conventions

It’s not surprising that most of us automatically think in terms of offices when we hear words like ‘work and ‘workplace’. So much of the shared experience, discussion, research and published knowledge in our sector is drawn from this type of environment.

But facilities management is just as crucial a function in museums, leisure sites, retail centres, healthcare, manufacturing, military installations, prisons – the list is virtually endless.

The common themes in all these environments – in all of FM - include operational efficiency and effectiveness, customer knowledge and service quality, corporate responsibility and sustainability, market positioning and brand development.

But there is so much to be gained from looking at how FM operates in unusual places. Workplace Futures 2017 challenged the prevailing ‘think office’ convention.
