Today’s workplace is going beyond where people just earn a living or a building that enables people to do their work. It is an identity for the business, an ecosystem for corporate culture, a place for employee expression and an environment to nurture an organization’s vision.

The facilities management profession sits at the center of these– integrating the workplace with processes that ultimately improve people’s lives, productivity and profitability of the core business. A 2015 survey by Sodexo and RICS shows that FM is enhancing social interaction in the workplace up to 30%, improving tasks efficiency by 22% and employees’ health and well being by 22%. The report furthered that 66% of managers are also convinced that improving employee’s quality of life is a strategic priority for their institutions; and Facilities Management will play a very important role in that.

All these, in addition to the increasing digitization of the workplace, speak to the increasing relevance of the FM profession in the scheme of things that deliver values to businesses.

Despite the increasing importance of FM to people productivity and business profitability, recruiting and managing talents for the profession in Nigeria is still a challenge.

In the face of issues such as education, career growth and development path, job enhancement and drying talent pool, what is the outlook for FM talents in 2020?
