What will be discussed?

Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is one of the most pertinent topics on the global business agenda today… and given the size and competitive nature of the Irish Labour market, more and more companies are recognising that by having a clear plan on D&I they can improve productivity, reduce down time, improve decision making, attract and retain employees whilst creating competitive advantage.

This Workplace & Facilities Expo Leadership Webinar addresses this issue from an Irish Perspective, by bringing together a group of industry leaders and professionals directly involved in addressing D&I in their organisations, as well as featuring a lively panel discussion, it will showcase actual actions they employed, as well as projects and initiatives to encourage a better engaged and more diverse workforce.

However, Diversity does not automatically bring Inclusion, the panel will discuss what Inclusion means for organisations and how it can be fostered for the benefit of the individual and the organisation.

The Panel features business leaders drawn from a range of Irish based Companies, Institutions, and Accademia to give attendees insights into the issues, benefits and practical steps they can take in their organisation and working environments.

CIM recently conducted a piece of research with Facility Managers from large Hi-tech Manufacturing plants in the UK. The research sought to understand if Industry, and the C-Suite,  is correctly focused to achieve sustainability and reduce energy costs, and what areas are driving energy usage in manufacturing.

Register today to hear our expert panellists discuss their thoughts on the key results and what energy cost rising means for the future of building operations. We’ll also share a copy of the Whitepaper presenting the research results in detail.

Learn more about:

    • According to Facilities Management, what is driving energy usage and where focus is needed?
    • Is industry and the C-Suite doing enough to tackle rising energy costs and discuss the impact this is having on operations?
    • What barriers to implementation of sustainability initiatives exist?
    • Do the FM teams feel supported or hindered by technology? Is it aligned to operational priorities?
    • How data can be used to unlock some of the building energy reduction initiatives to get control of energy costs while simultaneously improving profitability and competitiveness.

What will be discussed?

The importance of agile working and how this will influence the future of the workplace.

In 2020, Agile working was key to the future success of a huge number of organisations, how has agile working improved business opportunities?  What are the effects of the workforce and the leadership of these organisations? How has this impacted HR and our technology infrastructures?

Facilitated by IWFM (Head of R&I), with a panel made up of an expert from Ireland, with agile working expertise and workplace expertise (IWFM Workspace SIG) from the UK together with input from an HR perspective.

Questions to be addressed:

  1. What client organisational priorities are we starting to see now? Are they short or longer term in their perspective?
  2. How can we (and client organisations) keep our options open in an unfolding situation.
  3. What FM and workplace opportunities do we see and how are we reacting to them?
  4. On the other hand, what FM and workplace risks do we see and how are we reacting to them?
  5. What positive examples can we share which demonstrate the business value of FM and workplace right now?
  6. Are such examples new because of covid-19 (e.g. a new product or innovation) or accelerated/catalysed by covid-19 but actually old ideas? (e.g. implementing flexible working)

What will be discussed?

How has FM embraced the progress in workplace technology and how can we do more with the data produced from these technological advancements.

Technology has progressed so much in the last few years and continues to play an important part in the FM world, from Smart Buildings, IoT, AI and VR to name but a few, how can FM get on board to ensure best use of the systems available as well as the data collected.

Facilitated by IWFM, with a panel made up of a number of members with FM expertise, (including the IWFM technology SIG), Microsoft and expertise from the Ireland Region.

Questions to be addressed:

  1. Which emerging technologies (or those available now) are most likely to affect the FM profession and how?
  2. Is FM even aware of these technologies? Which of these are currently being utilised?
  3. What are the opportunities and challenges that these technologies have (are having) on the FM profession?
  4. Does FM have the right knowledge and skills to support these new technologies (ie digital literacy)?
  5. What does it mean to be digitally literate and what are the benefits of improving digital literacy in the FM profession?
  6. The FM and workplace professional has the knowledge and skill relating to FM, but how can they upskill to take on board these new technologies? Is there a need to upskill or are there  other opportunities to become more digitally literate?

What will be discussed?

The Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage are adding two new documents to the existing suite of guidance to further educate and assist in Fire Safety Management.

  • Code of Practice for Fire Safety Assessment of Premises & Buildings
  • Fire Safety Guide for Building Owners & Operators (Guide for persons with responsibilities under Section 18.2 of the Fire Services Acts 1981 & 2003).

New Building Control arrangements (BCAR), introduced in 2014, brought about a change of culture within the construction industry, improving design, inspection & certification standards.

The May 2018 Fire Safety Ireland – Task Force Report provides insights into government fire safety strategy from design, through construction and ultimately management for the life of a building.

This new guidance is designed to build on the progress made under BCAR and improve fire safety management standards in occupied buildings.

This panel discussion hosted by Workplace and Facilities Expo, supported by ASFPI & IFE, provides a platform to discuss this new guidance with experts available to answer questions.

More than 50% of European workers believe stress is common at work (European Institute for Construction Labour Research, 2019). And within the construction industry, psychosocial stress is becoming more prominent (Deutsche Sozialversicherung Europavertretung, 2019). During this session we will look at some of the drivers and outcomes of Stress and burnout at work within the Property and Construction Industry and look at how sustainable design can help improve these stresses.

What will be discussed?

The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

These vital climate talks are expected to bring together the largest gathering of heads of state ever hosted in the UK, alongside climate experts and campaigners, to agree coordinated action to tackle the climate emergency.

Boris Johnson has launched his commitment to tackling climate change by doubling the UK’s international climate finance to £11.6 billion over the period 2021-25.

We understand that COP26 is expected to tackle issues such as:

  • Creating a zero carbon economy
  • Committing to cutting carbon emissions by 2030
  • Helping people, economies and the environment adapt and prepare for the impacts of climate change
  • Safeguarding ecosystems, protecting natural habitats and keeping carbon out of the atmosphere
  • Clean road transport, accelerating the move to zero carbon road transport
  • Financing the shift to a zero carbon economy

The focus of this discussion will be answering some of the big questions, for example, what are we currently focusing on in the workplace and FM profession? What should COP26’s focus be?

Is workplace and FM taking this challenge seriously?  What progress has been made?  What progress should we be looking to achieve? Are we on track to support this within the built environment?  Do we have C-suite buy in and support? How is this being financed? What are the challenges and opportunities for the profession.
