The Simplar Foundation is pleased to announce a free new interactive web series, “Ask the FM Doctor”, sponsored by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA). In this first-of-its-kind virtual discussion, facility experts provide practical advice in addressing today’s operations, maintenance, workplace management, and procurement challenges. Here’s how it works:
- Teaching Moment (15 minutes): the FM Doctor will kick things off with a brief presentation targeted at a specific topic
- FM Virtual Peer Group (30 minutes): next, we will split up into small groups and give attendees an opportunity to network with each other and have a discussion on a relevant topic. Learn More [links to the FM Virtual Peer group description]
- Ask the FM Doctor – Office Hours (15 minutes or until the questions run out!): we’ll come back together for an open Q&A session. Have a challenging contract renewal? Have a unique situation with O&M? Bring your questions and let’s get it figured out!
The November 21 session is on Saving Time, Money and Gray Hair in Hiring the Right Vendors. Hiring industry partners is one of the most common things that FM’s do… but how often do they not meet expectations? Nothing will make you work harder and longer than hiring the “wrong person”. We will show you three powerful tools that will make your next contractor selection a refreshing experience.
