Five reasons to love and appreciate your facilities manager this Valentine’s week

Facilities managers play a key role in shaping the corporate workplace, by managing and maintaining spaces that are functional, engaging, safe and even conducive to employee wellbeing.


In the spirit of Valentine’s Day earlier this week, we share five reasons to show your heartfelt appreciation to facilities managers.


1. Facilities managers ensure workplaces are spotlessly clean


According to research, over 70% of employees think that cleanliness and hygiene are important in the workplace. Facilities managers ensure the office environment is well presented and spotlessly clean to enhance the employee and guest experience.


Our facilities teams use smart technology and human precision to proactively maintain cleanliness and hygiene in the office, as well as address any ad hoc cleaning needs.


2. Facilities managers cultivate collaboration


In the era of hybrid work, the corporate office needs to be able to facilitate connections and collaborative work. In fact, research suggests that 55% of businesses want more collaboration space in their offices.


Facilities managers play a key part in supporting the connections in the workplace. They ensure the spaces where employees work are well-maintained, accessible, and fully equipped with the technology and resources to support their working day.


3. Facilities managers care for your plants and flowers


Greener office environments can lead to a remarkable 30% reduction in employee sickness days. As a result, businesses are incorporating plants, greenery, and even living walls in their workplaces as part of their design and development.


At Anabas, our facilities managers are now responsible for maintaining and caring for office greenery. They do this to support our clients’ employee wellbeing and engagement strategies and to create a positive and enjoyable workplace experience for all those who attend.


4. Facilities managers prioritise health and safety


Facilities managers ensure the safety and security of everyone in the workplace. They proactively maintain health and safety protocols, identifying and mitigating potential hazards before they escalate. From faulty fire alarms to leaky pipes, their vigilance creates a secure and safe working environment, allowing employees to focus on their work without anxieties and disruptions from potential safety risks.


5. Facilities managers strive to make employees feel cared for and special


The facilities manager’s role is to care for and support the needs of all those who work in and visit the office, to make their days as productive and engaging as possible. They readily set up rooms for important meetings or events, ensure optimal air quality and temperature adjustments using IoT technology, and can even ensure an employee’s favourite coffee is ordered to kick-start a busy day. This meticulous attention to detail fosters a sense of belonging and engagement for employees and highlights their dedication to creating a positive and enjoyable work environment.


It is the facilities manager’s laser focus on improving the workplace experience for everyone in the workplace that makes us love and appreciate them every day – not just on February 14th.

We would love to hear from you
