Continuing with professional development is highly regarded and encouraged for all. Talking to others outside of McFT, exchanging views and challenging ideas is an excellent way to keep our people abreast of industry developments and inspire innovative thinking.
Opportunities range across the board and include industry specific events including FM conferences at home (eg ThinkFM, WorkPlace, BIFM) and abroad (eg IFMA, EuroFM), we look to the British Quality Foundation and Shingo for thinking around Quality, Lean and Customer Service. CIPD and IIP support our focus on people and health and safety updates provided from the likes of IOSH, BSC, RoSPA, Eversheds. We also interact with CIBSE, RICS, IMeche, CESA, IOR for advice on maintaining our professional training and competence.
These are open to a wide range of our team, not just senior managers.
We also facilitate membership of professional bodies from IOR to CFSP.
