Where industry meets and business is done: Workplace & Facilities Expo set for RDS in March
16 December 2019
The name Workplace & Facilities Expo (incorporating FM Ireland) reflects changing demands on businesses not only to provide functioning and effective facilities but ones that enhance the employee experience, improve wellbeing, increase staff loyalty and reduce staff turnover.
Managers have become more aware that it is not just the pay package that secures an employee’s productivity and loyalty, it the culture of the organisation.
One which recognises their needs, stresses and lifestyle can make the difference in attracting and keeping good, motivated and healthy employees.
In this new era, rather than operating standalone departmental silos, organisations will have to create cross functional teams involving senior management responsible for various functions such as FM, HR, and IT for them to come together to create and deliver the workplace and facilities needed.
Adopt different work practices
Facilitating this is the development in technology, which is allowing organisations to adopt different work practices that enhance the employee experience. Whether that is through the adoption of remote working or flexible working.
The green agenda and sustainability, whether in reducing the energy use through the adoption of more energy efficient products, smart buildings or energy management.
Alternatively, by reducing the amount of unnecessary travel through flexible working, increased use of conference calls and the ability to log into the company’s shared drives and facilitating remote working.
Employee wellbeing is high on the agenda … as work is becoming more stressful and hours longer the responsibility of and the benefits of well balanced staff, becomes more important.
Whether that be access to advice, in house health and mental health care or just a recognition of the needs and pressures on employees in the 21st century.
Thought Leadership Stage
Utilising a Thought Leadership Stage, Workplace and Facilities Expo will address topics including:
• The advantages of changing the corporate culture
• Valuing the employee
• What does well being look like and entail
• Adapting the working environment to accommodate Modern work practices
• Remote and flexible working – how do you monitor this – KPIs
• Smart and sustainable buildings
• Wellness and wellbeing
• Creating cross functional groups to deliver change
Workplace & Facilities Expo incorporates FM Ireland, so as well as the Thought Leadership Stage there will be a number of practical theatres that will expand on these whilst looking at issues including: facility management; health and safety; fire safety; security; energy efficiency; and building and property management.
Why not promote your products and services to an active audience of buyers
Last year this event delivered the largest dedicated audience of buyers and decision makers responsible for the facilities management aspect of large organisations across the country.
Workplace & Facilities Expo builds upon a history by opening up the event to those responsible for HR, IT and property management.
By attending, these decision makers have prequalified themselves as being both active in the market and seeking products services and solutions that can assist them to achieve their goals.
