Why Facilities Management Services are Important for your Employees
When you hear facility management services, you would assume their work revolves completely around the infrastructure of buildings and workplaces. What you may not realise is that facility management services go far beyond just the upkeep of the buildings you work in. In fact, facility management companies are also very responsible for the happiness and wellbeing of the employees who work in the building that they manage.
Great facility management companies develop strategies that cater to the needs of the building and it’s greatest assets. The most important assets of any building are its inhabitants. Although it may not seem obvious, the way facility management services are executed can directly affect staff morale.
Your facility management company should pay strict attention to the needs of your staff and ensure that their building and work environment needs are met. When employees can see that their management team cares for them then work productivity and morale is encouraged to remain high.
The facilities management team that runs your building should be consistently working to ensure that their working environment inspires, encourages and nurtures employees. A well-managed office transcends good temperature control and stocked up toilet paper.
Does the environment you work match the requirements of your staff? There are several audits you may perform to evaluate your facility management companies ability to connect with your team. Perhaps you would like to play music in your office or you require dead silence to accurately perform tasks, but there is a dance studio above your workspace. Perhaps the single plant that lived in your office has since died and the space your team spends hours every week is uninspiring and lacks homeliness.
A poorly maintained work environment not only discourages staff but also hurts potential new clients and business, thus harming the profitability of the businesses in the buildings, and in turn threatening the job of the facilities manager. A rundown workspace could easily signal to the staff they are unappreciated or cared for.
The appearance and functionality of your office or workspace are both equally important for boosting staff morale and retaining employees. No one wants to work an environment that looks unkempt or uncared for. There is a distinct correlation between a safe, happy, hygienic workspace and productive workers. By maintaining a good work environment, management is able to demonstrate to staff that they are valued, thus boosting staff morale.
