Facilities management and infrastructure services firm Bouygues Energies & Services (Bouygues) has become a BIFM Recognised Centre, capable of delivering the BIFM qualifications in facilities management (FM) in-house for its employees.
Bouygues, which has worked with BIFM for many years as one of the employers closely involved in the development of the qualifications in FM and the FM Professional Standards, now provides BIFM level 3 qualifications in facilities management (FM) as part of its academy, which has already sponsored over 100 people through levels 3-7 FM qualifications.
The professional development programme means that the organisation’s talent management and succession planning is fully in place; last year alone Bouygues Energies & Services were able to promote 1 in 20 staff members confident in their ability to step up to the next level.
David Carr, managing director of Bouygues Energies & Services, said:
“Bouygues Energies & Services is very proud of its committed and passionate team. Anticipating and responding to our colleagues’ training needs is, and has always been fundamental to creating this environment. In today’s world, it is more vital than ever to have an adaptable, well trained team. Becoming a BIFM Recognised Centre is a real achievement and an essential part of this journey.”
Linda Hausmanis, head of professional standards and education at BIFM, said:
“BIFM welcomes Bouygues Energies & Services to the growing number of employers who are committed to the development of its staff, which ultimately leads to the professionalisation of the facilities management industry.”
