Today is World FM Day! Through this initiative by GlobalFM we celebrate our wonderfully diverse and challenging profession, and proudly acknowledge the pivotal role that FM has played, and continues to play, in facilitating business and economic continuity of societies, communities and organizations. During this past year, and perhaps more than ever before, we have seen the strategic relevance of FM in responding to global challenges in a multidisciplinary manner to safeguard our health and well-being, and ultimately, improve our quality of life through the services it manages and delivers (ISO/FIDIS 41001:2018).
EuroFM proudly supports this initiative, and through collaboration with FM associations, FM professionals and EuroFM Ambassadors worldwide, we would like to pay tribute to the theme of this World FM Day: STANDING TALL BEYOND THE PANDEMIC! To help us in celebrating this, we have asked our EuroFM Ambassadors, as well as our professional network to share with us from their various cultural and geographic perspectives, their thoughts on what FM is and the role that FM has played in these challenging times. Contributions from Austria, Botswana, Bulgaria, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Peru, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, UAE and the US reflets the global nature of FM. We invite you to watch these reflections through THIS link, or view the recording of the online event HERE.
On behalf of the EuroFM Board, I wish you a very happy World FM Day 2021!
