One of the biggest challenges facing facilities management companies today is their ability to demonstrate their own strategic importance. Acknowledgement, that well-structured facilities strategies can provide strategic advantages to an organisation is seldom recognised. Unlike many other professional service offerings there are no statutory requirements for types of training and skills, despite the size of budgets controlled and the enormity of the associated risk management obligations.
In India, the facilities profession has been evolving at a fast pace: from a janitorial, order-taking and administrative function; through to a controlling order-giving function; to a two-way dialogue about needs and responses; and, more recently, in some organisations to the role of catalyst to drive change and competitive advantage. The introduction of integrated facility management, along with the demand for services, such as energy management, QHSE compliances and property management strategies, is driving the market towards consolidation. Which is why, the role of the Facility Manager has become extremely crucial and pivotal in this ever-changing, volatile and dynamic environment. This evolution of FM is vital to meet the growing demands of organisations and individuals, whether its employees or clients. Yet, for all facilities management companies to remain relevant they need to understand the business of their offering: how they are defining their business; how are they structuring their operations; how are they communicating; and how they are supporting their customers’ needs.
The ideal facilities relationship model should be focused on establishing a structured, meaningful and collaborative approach to the alignment of the business and facilities strategies. This approach is critical in guiding facilities operatives into broader awareness and better understanding of the business language, parameters and needs. To truly succeed, we must embrace and embed the concept of innovation within our organization as competitive advantage will only be established through excellence in customer value and the ensuing relentless care and attention provided. While customer centricity is an important aspect of our business, equally important is the need to have highly motivated teams who drive and deliver the end experiences of customers. Only driven employees would put in the effort to find better methods to deliver quality output in the most efficient manner possible. To succeed in this fast-changing environment and achieve sustainable top-line growth, the time has come when this journey is clearly a strategic necessity, and all of us need to be clear about where we stand and what steps lay ahead of us.
