In a recent survey carried out by FMJ in partnership with Informa, the organisers of the Facilities Show, the majority of respondents reported that staff were now returning to the workplace on a full or part time basis. The survey also found that nearly 70 per cent of FMs biggest priority is maintaining employee health and wellbeing.
With the COVID-19 pandemic causing one of the biggest shifts in workplace culture in our lifetime, it is essential that FMs, office managers and HR managers lead the way in creating office environments that prioritise staff safety and wellbeing – both physical and mental – upon their return.
FMJ has teamed up with Zip Water, creator of award-winning sustainable drinking water systems, to discuss the ways in which FMs can safeguard the provision of essential amenities within the workplace as we emerge into a new era of touch-free, socially distanced offices.
During the event, which will feature a panel of leading FMs and an FM services provider, we will discuss how FM professionals, office managers and HR managers can balance the need to manage shared spaces, such as staff kitchens, while maintaining a safe environment and meeting energy and waste reduction targets. This will include a look at some of the latest touch-free technologies; including apps to manage workflow and hands-free automation (e.g. automatic doors, taps etc).
Join us for an event which will address the ways FMs can meet their commitment to ensure the wellbeing of people as an integral part of their sustainability remit.
