How Facilities Management Companies In London Are Evolving The Workplace

09 November 2017

Take a look at your workplace. In the vast majority of cases, it looks very different to how it did 20 years ago. The rise of the internet and associated technology means that companies have adapted to fit their employees.

It's possible to get the absolute best from them, if you evolve to keep up with the times.

Facilities management companies in London are designed to help you do just that. If you call on their services, they can come and make the changes that your employees, and your business as a whole, needs. These can include:

Focusing on the worker

The workplace is no longer a place where the employee must adapt to fit in, in fact the workplace must evolve to suit them and their needs. This is especially true as your workforce is now a multi generational group, full of people all with different needs.

Facilities management companies in London know that to get the most out of your employees, you need to meet them halfway. That's why they'll look into using several different resources in order to help your employees get the most out of the working day.

Telecommuting

This is becoming more and more popular, and with good reason. 20 years ago it would have been essential for every employee to be present in the office, with no exceptions. Now, though, as long as you have an internet connection you can work from wherever you are.

A facilities manager can set up a telecommuting system, so if employees need to be away from the office they can still work. It's great for them, and you'll still get the level of commitment from them that you had before.

Creating space to work

If your office is just a room full of desks or cubicles, then it's going to be hard for your workers to really do their best. A facilities manager will understand that employees need a variety of spaces to really be able to work together.

If you hire a facilities management company in London, they'll suggest creating breakout spaces, private meeting rooms, networking spaces, and so on.

Creating these spaces helps employees work together more efficiently. It also helps them shake up their work and thinking, as they're not always working from the same desk.

Collecting data

Talk to any facilities management company in London, and they'll tell you that the most important thing you need to collect is data on your employees. Without this, you don't know what you're trying to achieve with them. Look into how they come to the office, what time? How do they get here? When do they leave? Where do they work in the office?

All these questions will give you an idea of how they work, and where things need to change. Your facilities manager can then put all these changes in place.

FMS can cater to all of your employee's needs, from telecommuting to creating restful break spaces in your building. Get in touch with us and we'll create a workplace that suits every worker.
