Building Operating Management magazine created the FMXcellence Recognition Program to acknowledge in-house FM teams that apply best practices and innovation to meet their organization's priorities. If your department has added significant value to your organization by helping to achieve broader goals or by actions that have a broad impact across the organization, we want to hear from you.
Whether it's sustainability, cost cutting, or a construction or renovation project, the in-house FM function plays an important role in achieving results for the organization, whether it is a corporation, educational institution, health care provider, government entity, or another type of commercial or institutional organization. And in-house FM departments that achieve results deserve praise.
