The theme for 2016, is ‘Empowering people for a productive world’ with the days events being led by the global facility management association’s World FM Day task force.
Commenting on the theme, Duncan Waddell, chairman of Global FM, said:
“FM is all about enablement; as a sector we enable people to work, we enable the economy, we enable technology, we enable social interaction – the list is endless. At the crux of all of this is people – and for this year’s World FM Day we aim to highlight how we, as FM professionals, empower people to reach their full potential and in turn create a productive world.”
The annual celebration aims to recognise the work that FM professionals, and the FM sector, contributes to businesses worldwide whilst raising the profile of the FM profession across the globe.
Celebrations for World FM Day will take place across six continents. FM professionals are being encouraged to host events and undertake activities to celebrate and promote FM during the week 11 – 15 July 2016.
Winners in the Global FM Awards of Excellence will also be revealed on World FM Day.
