Initiated in 2008 by Global FM, World FM Day aims to recognize the vital work that FM professionals contribute to business worldwide, and to raise the profile of the FM profession anywhere they influence the health, safety, productivity and well-being of people who utilize the built environment. Activities are encouraged the week of May 11-15. FM organizations on six continents celebrate World FM Day by holding public events such as staff luncheons, panel seminars and workshops, social media chats, client networking events and more. Winners of the 2020 World FM Awards are announced. Global FM will offer promotional materials for the event on its site.
IFMA marks the occasion in various ways and encourages activities the whole month. Let IFMA or Global FM know how you plan to celebrate World FM Day, and they will help spread the word via social media channels.
