Businesses are increasing their space as people return to in-person work, with leasing for Q1 this year up 19% over 2021. Whether to offices or other facilities, the “Great Return” is well underway.
For staff, it’s a shock to the system. The financial and time cost of commuting are taking their toll.
For managers, getting a barely-used facility operational is a daunting task, on top of maintaining morale.
Contracting a facility manager is now more crucial than ever. They lighten the load on business owners and improve morale by maintaining facilities to a standard worth commuting for.
What Does a Facility Manager Do?
Facility managers save you time and money and allow you to focus on your business. That’s because they take on board your facility’s daily maintenance operations.
Depending on the size and needs of a business, this varies from janitorial work to security services. Facility managers can even handle event design and crowd control when needed.
Benefits of a Facility Management Service
Having one vendor manage all your facility’s needs lowers overheads and improves your employees’ experience. Here are five specific ways a facility manager will benefit your business.
1. Streamlined Facility Management
Juggling multiple vendors is time-consuming. Small details can get missed by a gap in your maintenance contracts.
With a facility manager, businesses can have peace of mind that everything is taken care of. Plus, you have a single port of call if you’d like to address an issue.
2. Reduced Expenses and Cost Analysis Insights
Streamlined management means streamlined costs. Managing your budget and expenses is much easier with a single vendor.
Using a single management system also provides insights into your expenditure. Our total operational assessments show you exactly what your facility costs to run. That’s only possible because we manage every single aspect.
The records we keep help you spot and correct inefficiencies.
We also help you look to the future. Our lifecycle planning keeps costs manageable when equipment does need replacing.
3. Safe and Operational Facilities
Instead of addressing problems as they arise, facility managers work preventatively. Scheduled maintenance and repairs minimize the risk that equipment or facilities will ever be out of commission. This saves you money and keeps your facility running smoothly.
Our experienced managers also keep your site safe and compliant. Through cleaning, maintenance, or security, we keep you working either to legal standards or your own parameters.
4. Permanently Stocked Facilities
You may currently contract a cleaning company. Do they also make sure the toilet paper and paper towels are always fully stocked? Or does that become someone else’s responsibility?
With a facility management company, these small details are never overlooked.
5. More Time to Focus
Even if multiple vendors all work effectively, they take effort to manage. A facility management service buys you back time and energy to focus on the work that matters most.
