On May 13th 2020 it was World FM Day, a day which recognises the vital work that the facilities management industry and its people contribute to business worldwide.
This year’s theme was ‘Celebrating our Environment’, which acknowledges the FM industry’s respect for the environment and continuing focus on sustainability. To mark the event, not only did we launch our Corporate Responsibility Report, we also decided to celebrate our great industry and great people. ISS UK & Ireland marked the day by launching an ‘FM Hero’ Campaign to recognise exceptional people across ISS and their impact on our lives.
World FM Day at ISS
These are unique times where our lives and roles are not as they normally are. All of us are experiencing a change in our daily lives. In ISS, we have many key workers who are continuing to provide critical services to support our clients across sectors such as retail, banking, restoration, transport and healthcare.
We are all immensely proud of these key workers – they are all FM heroes. Over the past two months we have seen and heard of some extraordinary stories about our ISS colleagues; from clients, from members of the public, from colleagues and Managers. It is very humbling to hear the steps and selfless actions that employees take on a daily basis.
FM Hero Campaign
As we couldn’t congratulate all our FM Heroes in person, e-cards were sent to employees, thanking them for the amazing acts of kindness; for going the extra mile for others or for just making a difference.
We say thank you each and every day, though World FM Day makes it doubly special. Happy world FM Day
