Extensive new research launched into leadership in FM
A new research initiative, focusing on leadership has been launched by Workplace Law, the key findings of which will be presented at ThinkFM 2013, taking place on Monday 10 June at the Royal College of Physicians in London. The theme of the conference this year is ‘The Leadership Challenge: Raising our game, making our case, realising our value’, and Workplace Law’s survey aims to draw the opinions of facilities management clients and service providers across the UK. It covers a range of issues, including talent in FM, sustainability, leadership in health and safety, plus looking at how leadership and performance management in FM can really add value to an organisation.
This wide-ranging performance research programme will uncover best practices and develop benchmarks for use by FM organisations and their clients. The research follows the success of the programme of research Workplace Law, which specialises in employment law, health and safety, and environmental management, conducted for the 2012 conference.
David Sharp, Managing Director at Workplace Law, comments: “We were delighted so many FM professionals completed this major industry survey last year, giving a really clear picture of trends in facilities management. This year we’ve made the survey quicker and easier to complete, and everyone who does so will receive a free copy of the summary report. Whether you’re a client, a service provider or a consultant, your views really count.”
The survey is now open to complete – all participants will help contribute to one of the largest research programmes in FM this year, be provided with a copy of the summary report, and have the chance to win a Kindle Fire HD tablet.
The full report will be available to purchase after the ThinkFM conference.
