World FM Day celebration 8 May 2024 – Inspire, Integrate, Innovate: Ignite your career in FM

May 8, 2024

EuroFM would like to take the opportunity  to congratulate  all those involved in the FM Educational sector  lecturers, researchers and students on World FM Day 2024. It is thanks to your efforts that  the workplace of the future is in safe hands.

Facility Management is about those responsible for organizing and maintaining a safe, healthy and optimal working environment for employees, residents and visitors. In recent years, various topics have been discussed that have an immediate impact on the working environment. Themes such as financing and implementing sustainability and reducing shortages of energy sources, embracing inclusivity in the working environment, outflow of professionally mature pensionable employees, influx and reception of asylum seekers as a result of tensions in the world are not only contemporary, but require increasing attention. But meeting shortages in the labour market and the arrival of robots, the inability to avoid AI developments and the relationship between automation and the arrival of cybersecurity also require new knowledge. New hybrid working environments, specializing in workplace management, absorbing high workloads, new technologies and integrating inclusivity make facility management relevant and this field is developing rapidly.

As a European Facility Management Network, EuroFM is committed to connecting professionals, lecturers and researchers at an international level, sharing knowledge and exploring themes in depth. We do this in many ways such as , during our annual EuroFM Conference.  This year’s event takes place on June 10 and 11, 2024 in London.  We look forward  to welcoming you and engaging with you on a host of topics and discussions covering the latest developments and trends. The conference is being organised in conjunction with, IWFM and FMCE and is being hosted by the London Metropolitan University. Further details can be found on the following links  or .

We encourage all students in the facility management field to join us in London and to participate in the vlog competition.

In order for our FM profession to thrive & prosper students need to expand their knowledge and understanding of FM and challenge the norms of today. Training courses in the field of facility management can be found everywhere in Europe, allowing young students to take their first steps in this fascinating field.  This training will help lay the cornerstone for a bright, interesting and challenging career path. With this in mind EuroFM, hosted by Laurens Lamberts, recorded a podcast during World Workplace Europe in Rotterdam that clearly illustrates the importance of students and how they are able to build a successful career in facility management.

We invite you to listen to this podcast on World FM Day, leave a comment and put our students in the spotlight.

On behalf of the Board of EuroFM and all members of EuroFM we would like to thank you for your contribution in helping FM to deliver on it’s potential to influence the workplace. You are heroes and we wish you all the best today, tomorrow and into the future.
