As the UK continues to rebuild after the pandemic, we believe Webb’s will be a great addition to the group and further enhance our offer to customers, whilst enabling us to accelerate our commitments under the Reconomy Social Value programme.
2022 Facility Management Survey
Informa, the organizers of Facilities Show, in conjunction with FMJ magazine, have teamed up to launch a quiz that aims to offer a useful overview of where the facilities management industry is today and what the outlook is for the future.
For example, are you asking workers to start returning to the office with a home/office hybrid work schedule? Are you overhauling your premises to allow for more flexible ways of working and as such your workplace strategies, including sustainability, wellbeing and engagement, have had to be radically rethought?
Your anonymized responses will contribute to a report on the biggest challenges and opportunities facing facility managers; now, and expected within the next 12 months.
