Chair of Judges Steve Gladwin said: “The IWFM Awards recognise the quality and excellence which takes place in workplace and facilities management and I encourage individuals, teams, companies and collaborative partnerships to get involved. There really is no better showcase for all that is great about our industry.”
IWFM Chief Executive Linda Hausmanis added: “I’m thrilled to be launching the inaugural IWFM Awards which I know will build on the brilliance that has gone before. The value which comes from recognition by our industry peers is beyond measure – but you’ve got to be in it to win it, so if you’re sitting on a great achievement, don’t delay – dazzle.”
All entries will be considered as part of a robust judging process which will culminate in a black-tie awards ceremony on 14 October 2019.
Entries close at midnight on Monday 29 April. Judging will take place during May and June, with finalists being announced in July.
