This award recognises exceptional benefit to society created and delivered by a facilities management team through excellent FM practice or as part of a social responsibility initiative. The judges will be seeking evidence of the positive impact made on the social fabric of a community or the well-being of individuals or families.
This impact should relate to the design of a service, the adoption of a policy, the implementation of a project, or some other initiative designed to benefit society. It should benefit the well-being of individuals, the economic health of communities, the quality of the local environment, or be assisting in the alleviation of a specific social problem.
from the Lead Judge, Julie Kortens
“This is a really important category because we know that great FM makes a big difference to the people it touches, but the FM sector doesn’t get enough credit for the benefit we bring to society and the economy.
My judging team will be seeking demonstrable evidence of exceptional benefit to society created and delivered by an FM team over a sustained period. The winner of this award will be celebrated as the leading exemplar of the exceptional work that dedicated FM teams are doing up and down the country.“
