From enabling the mass transition to homeworking to ensuring healthcare professionals can work in clean, safe environments, maintaining and securing buildings though empty of people, and more, workplace and facilities practitioners worldwide have played a key role in the response to this global crisis.
‘As we look with hope to the future, we can be proud of the crucial contribution our profession has made as we explore new possibilities beyond the pandemic. We look forward to celebrating our profession standing tall this World FM Day and beyond.’
