There are currently more than 25 million FM professionals in the world, representing US$1.12 trillion annually. Their role is to connect people, place, process and technology so that the buildings in their care operate at optimal levels. For decades, FM professionals have been restrictively classified as tactical support due in large part to the lack of global uniformity in how the FM industry defined and measured itself. The new IFMA-RICS career map delivers unprecedented clarity and internationally recognized authority on the required skills, training and experience necessary for all professional stages and goals. It is one of many resources coming out of the collaboration designed to accelerate career development and build recognition for FM professionals as strategic leaders in the built environment. “By eliminating fragmentation, we are building a stronger, more impactful international FM community, unified by a common professional language, even when its constituents speak different languages.” “A unified FM industry, for example, means more opportunity to make sure smart buildings operate correctly, green technology actually works and innovative designs are useable,” said Sean Tompkins, RICS chief executive. “The career map sets a course for FM professionals to internationally align on objectives, critical metrics and best practices which ultimately deepens their expertise and value to the built environment.” The IFMA-RICS collaboration, launched in April this year, is making ground-breaking strides in driving professional recognition in the FM sector.
