Debunking Multi-Generational Mythology

OK Boomers, prepare yourselves. It turns out that much of the anecdotes about entitled Millennials and short-attention span Gen Z’ers are not backed up with evidence. In fact, workplace science is revealing quite a different picture than all those “Generations in the Workplace” experts painted. The evidence is pointing toward a far more significant trend where such broad-brush strokes could stifle innovation and negatively affect recruitment and retention. Join us for a panel discussion where we will separate the fact from fiction and learn a more fluid approach to generations in the workplace.

What are the top takeaways from the presentation:

  1. Learn a more refined approach to understand the wide range of ages and skill sets in the workplace than the traditional generational divides
  2. Learn how to foster innovation and connection among diverse age ranges
  3. Learn what can FMs do to support their organizations with these knowledge as well as their own FM teams

Workplace Design

Why do so many office environments look the same when all companies have differing cultures and work team needs? And when the spaces do vary, sure it’s seemingly not a cookie-cutter open office grid however that coolness on paper doesn’t always transfer to a space that employees use that way the design artfully hoped—it is design for its own sake not the needs of the user groups.   And those stakeholder needs will vary in the future, but does the design allow for flexible configuration to support a desired change in 12 months or in 12 hours!

Our panel will address how to create a space that reflects the needs of the employees (existing and future) who operate within the workplace and as well as those that must constantly reconfigure (and maintain) with leading edge FF&E and materials to support a changing workforce.

A Metric for Measuring Facility Management Quality

A Metric for Measuring Facility Management Quality

You may have an SLA (Service Level Agreement) that is full of KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators).  Companies you’re benchmarking against may already be using KPI’s. Some track how they are reducing FM costs stay within a “glide-path” to take down the costs 2% per year can be important for companies of any size.  Where do you fit in?

 

We what to leave you with three (3) takeaways on KPI’s:

  • What is a KPI?  Which ones are must tracks?
  • Measuring Hard Services such as classic’s like work-orders, Mechanical performance, etc. and Soft Services surrounding the café, mailroom delivery, reception, etc.. How we metric these successfully will be one larger takeaway.
  • Still standing?  Brace yourself, Space management or occupancy utilization…what are the metrics?  Too simple? We will delve into what some would call subjective yet it’s trending hot in today’s market; we will leave the audience understanding that regardless of side, department capabilities and with or without a service provider assisting, you can measure how well your workplace is improving relative to general attendance and use of prototype areas (yes, densification and the painful change management be damned!).
