The world is constantly changing, and as the workforce becomes more diverse and technology evolves with it, employees are expecting much more from their employer and from the environment they are tasked with producing results in. Corporate real estate leaders recognise the value of accommodating these needs, and are starting to replace their traditional employment and workplace models with next generation design concepts; all of which play a pivotal role in recruiting, retaining, and enabling employees to succeed.

There is significant shift in attitude towards valuing people; their goals, priorities and the space that aligns to these needs. Corporate Real Estate experts have the ability to be a catalyst for change, encourage innovation, and improve employee morale with the right tools and real estate strategy.


With that in mind, Next Generation Workplaces 2017 has been developed to showcase cutting edge case studies on the topics of:

• Leveraging design to support an agile workforce
• Utilising technology to enhance the employee experience and foster collaboration
• Effective change management strategies to ensure that your staff realise the benefits of their new   environments
• Increasing space utilisation in an increasingly mobile and flexible workforce

Practitioners, corporate members and of course all other EuroFM members are invited to join this EuroFM Webinar on Thursday November 25th from 14:00 till 15:00 (CEST). 

Dr. ir. D.J.M. (Theo) van der Voordt (The Faculty of Architecture and The Built Environment at Delft University of Technology) will present how to manage and measure the value of Facility Management (FM) and Corporate Real Estate Management (CREM). 

Costs are an important driver for many of us. Van der Voordt will show us there are actually 12 parameters to define the value. These parameters can be influenced in different ways and the performance can measured in different ways. For example the parameter “health & safety” could be improved by better indoor air quality, acoustics and light. By measuring sick leave, number of accidents or percentage of dissatisfied employees, you gain insight in how well you perform on “health & safety”. To be able to compare your performance with other organizations, a standard method is required. The model Van der Voordt proposes could be a way to standardize measuring the value of FM.

During the presentation there will be enough time for questions and discussions. The webinar is recorded and made available on the EuroFM website. 

Watch here the webinar the belonging documents we sent to the participants, be there a next time!
