IFMA and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), a global not-for-profit professional body representing the land, real estate, construction and infrastructure sectors, are collaborating to transform the US$1 trillion global facility management industry.
The IFMA-RICS collaboration represents the most significant evolution in the history of facility management, providing an unprecedented level of industry support to meet the growing demands of the 25 million FM practitioners around the world.
The two organizations are aligning standards and professional development for the industry, uniting the global FM community to increase consistency and unification of strategy across the life cycle of the built environment.
The collaboration offers a single suite of professional qualifications in facility management, providing global recognition for FMs of all educational backgrounds, skills, work experiences and career goals.
These efforts serve to raise the profile of FM, giving a greater voice and increased status to the profession to shape the future of the built environment and enable business success.
