Have your say: complete the Importance of Data Survey

Earlier this year, we produced the ‘Harnessing the power of data’ guidance note in partnership with Planon. This sought to provide workplace and facilities management professionals with a better understanding of the value data can bring to their work and the practical things they need to consider when trying to make better use of data.

To build on this, we’d like to ask you a few questions. 

Please complete our short Importance of Data Survey and help us gain valuable insights into the importance of data within our industry, how organisations are benefiting from it, and the challenges we continue to face.



‘The Stoddart Review’ spoke at length of data being used for more than just financial and space analysis. A more recent IWFM report, ‘Bridging facilities management’s digital divide’, highlighted the lack of digital skills in the industry, recommending FMs build digital partnerships to fill the gap. So, whilst we are waking up to the power data has to inform and drive decision making at all levels within our organisations, our industry still has some way to go. This survey will help to inform that conversation.

The survey closes on Monday 6 August 2021. Your responses are anonymous and the little bit of time you devote to this short survey will make a big difference.

Thank you in advance for taking part; we really appreciate your support.
