The Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) has teamed up with IT services business Ricoh to help workplace and facilities professionals extract the value that effective workplaces can bring.
IWFM and Ricoh will be working together to help workplace and facilities professionals to understand the cultural, process and technology drivers which help to create people-centred workplaces.
IWFM and Ricoh are launching the partnership with a Creating Better Workplaces web hub which will be a one-stop source of workplace essentials, including insight, guidance and practical learning opportunities, plus an insider’s view from the world’s first Chief Workplace Officer.
Chris Moriarty, IWFM’s Director of Insight and Engagement said: “The growing recognition by organisations that their people’s performance is driven by physical environments marks our profession’s greatest opportunity. As the facilities profession pivots to become a central player in people and business performance, our insights work is laying down a rich bank of content and development opportunities to help professionals grow with this change.
“The partnership we’ve created with Ricoh is a strong launch pad for us to open the workplace debate and we are looking forward engaging with professionals, sharing guidance and insights on how to build better workplaces.”
Chas Moloney, Marketing Director from Ricoh added: “Ricoh recognises that change is driven by imaginative thinking, so partnering with IWFM on an initiative as important as helping to shape and support tomorrow’s workplace leaders is directly in line with our broader aim to help companies and individuals transform the way they work and harness their collective knowledge.”
