New head of move and change management at Crown Workspace

Crown Workspace has appointed a new Head of Move and Change Management to support business growth and strengthen its business proposition.

Jackie Furey has over 25 years management experience within workplace consultancy, change management, and relocation management having delivered some of the UK’s most notable projects.

Previously, Furey has held positions at the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management as Chair of Workspace SIG and Chair of Women in FM, as well as the Director of her own business, Where Workplace Works Ltd that offered a range of workplace consultancy services.

Over the last two years, Crown has seen a shift in the market with businesses having to adapt their workspace in order to support the current workforce, whilst considering the changing working patterns and enhanced flexibility expected post-pandemic.

In this new role, Furey will be focusing on helping with the emotional client process that can come with change as well as helping our clients to build a case for change and implement workspace solutions that work for their business and their teams.

Commenting on her appointment, Furey said: “I am very excited to be starting this new position at Crown Workspace and I can’t wait to implement my ideas. I am extremely passionate about showing clients how they can use a space, both physically and culturally especially with the changing needs of employees and employers in the new hybrid approach to working.”

Phil Oram, Regional Director at Crown Workspace UKI, said: “Welcoming Jackie to the Crown Workspace team will support the division’s continued growth as she brings with her extensive sector knowledge and experience. We are impressed by her ability to hold lasting relationships with previous clients and her status within the industry will help reinforce the trust we have built as an organisation. She will be key in helping us to implement our plans in driving change within the sector, which is crucial at a time when we are seeing a period of transformation as workspaces and the physical office are evolving.”

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey

With the current economic crisis resulting in higher prices and more of a squeeze on resources, FMs need to ensure that they have robust building and maintenance services in place to control costs and reduce the need for emergency repairs. When it comes to drainage and plumbing there are also the challenges of dealing with extreme weather, from droughts to flooding, the need to meet stringent regulations and to avoid causing environmental damage.

UK drainage specialist, Metro Rod, has launched a survey which explores the main areas of interest for FMs in maintaining drainage and plumbing, including how they currently assess their supply chains to ensure they’re working with partners that meet the highest possible standards and provide value for money.

The results will be published online so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, you will be entered into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
