The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has commenced its transition to become the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM), with the full changeover to its new brand in effect from November 19th.
Staff have been working behind the scenes to make the transition to IWFM since members voted for the name change at the AGM in July.
The current BIFM website will be offline from Friday, November 16th while the switch is made to a new site, while more products and services will be online and a part of the IWFM brand in the following weeks.
BIFM says that transitioning to the IWFM is a defining strand of its ambition to reframe facilities management, emphasising its ability to make a real contribution to the performance of organisations – more value creator, less cost centre.
