World FM Day 2015 has developed recognition from Facility Managers as a day to celebrate their profession since its inception in 2008. This year’s 7th annual World FM Day focuses on the role of Facility managers in building resilience, which encompasses a detailed list of tasks. All members of the FM community are encouraged to engage themselves within a promotional event. Either through a community service project, networking, online project or producing thought leadership piece, FM’s should find a way to get involved! The celebration will take place throughout the week of June 8th, but World FM Day has been set as June 10th.
The worldwide alliance of member-centered facility management organizations, GlobalFM, established World FM Day in an effort to bring awareness to the FM profession. FM professionals are influential in a company’s overall safety, productivity and well-being of people within the organization.
Delegates from Qube Global Software will volunteer their time for regional projects. This year Philadelphia-based delegates will participate with the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of IFMA community service event on June 24, 2015 at Bartram Gardens, a historical living garden based in Philadelphia, PA that engages learners and visitors of all ages. Garden founder and third generation Quaker, John Bartram, purchased 102 acres from Swedish Settlers and quickly began collecting plants from across North American plants. As Pennsylvania was still considered a colony, King George III appointed Bartram the “Royal Botanist”. Following his death – three generations after tended to the garden. Today the garden is owned by the City of Philadelphia and managed by the Association and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.
Facility managers will assist gardening projects. In previous years, the partnership of Qube Global Software along with the Greater Philadelphia chapter packaged food for well deserving families at Philabundance, rehabilitated apartment homes with ACHIEVEability, and cleaned up local schools and playgrounds with various organizations.
