If you're a Corporate member of IWFM, you're invited to their last Corporate Members Event of 2018 and our first as the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM).
Earlier this year, Carillion’s failure and the resulting fall-out sharpened the focus on corporations’ social responsibilities and the social value they can and should deliver. FM, potentially, has a significant role to play in helping deliver social value. But first, through partnership with clients, it must arrive at a common definition of social value and devise standardised metrics that can demonstrate successful delivery. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been a mantra of the business world for many years.
To drive momentum in the ongoing social value debate, FM needs to take a leadership role, proposing solutions to clients rather than responding to queries. There is a clear role for IWFM in steering FM towards the creation of social value metrics and an industry-agreed definition of what social value should mean.
