What is the Importance of Sourcing and Procurement for Facilities Management?
The facilities management industry was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to a dramatic shift in the operations, strategies, and functioning of facility managers within companies. As industries slowly attempts to enter the post-COVID world, there is an increasing need for change, novel strategies, and unique approaches to planning. Sourcing and procurement play a crucial and undebatable role in the transformation, recovery, and restart of the facilities management industry in the post-COVID era, as focus shifts toward increased hygiene-related policies, the rising need for safety and cleanliness at the workplace, and the development of a digitized work environment.
How Can Our Upcoming Webinar Help the Facilities Management Industry Prepare for the Post-COVID Era?
The rapidly transforming and advancing nature of digitization worldwide has impacted the facilities management industry significantly, particularly due to the development of remote work set-ups, and increasing need for IT and technological resources. Additionally, as companies attempt to restore in-office work environments, routinely maintaining cleanliness, social distancing, hygiene, and safety can be laborious and challenging if handled manually. However, implementing technology in adaptive and transformative ways can help companies minimize labor, and develop sustainable solutions for the long-term future.
Our upcoming webinar explores the important role of facilities management in the post-COVID era, and provides unparalleled insight into the crucial and undeniable impact of efficient sourcing and procurement for companies returning to in-office work. As companies divide employees between in-office and remote work, to assure hygiene, maintain equipment, and overcome potential risks, facilities managers will require a range of resources, services, and products continually available. These requirements will include suppliers for cleaning and hygiene supplies, advanced and safe technologies, and digital or IT needs in both spaces. With the guidance and insights provided in this webinar, companies can approach this transformative phase with clear expectations, choose the right suppliers, and meet their sourcing and procurement industry standards with ease, while maintaining efficiency and reduced costs.
The impact of efficient sourcing and procurement often goes unnoticed, and companies fail to acknowledge the wide range of benefits, including reduced costs, higher efficacy, improved business relationships, resiliency of the supply chain, and long-term strategic advantage. Learning to identify, evaluate, and leverage these and other significant benefits can help the company overcome upcoming industry risks, develop sustainable strategic business plans, gain a substantial competitive advantage, and minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their business. Attending our webinar can enable companies to attain these skills, and gain a more comprehensive perspective toward the role of facilities management.
