May 17, 2024

Facility managers play a vital role in creating environments that support mental and physical wellbeing. This could include indoor comfort and cleanliness, accessibility and ergonomic workspaces, green and communal spaces, comprehensive security measures and more. During Mental Health Awareness Month in May 2024, ESFM leaders partnered with the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) to host a webinar discussing how FMs can support inclusive environments: optimizing systems, creating mindful spaces and communicating efforts that are good for people and planet.

The panel, moderated by ESFM Senior Vice President, Technology, Chris Lilly, included Senior Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Natacha Jacque, Senior Director of ESG & Brand Strategy Andrea Rossitter and Vice President of Technical Services & Energy Management Solutions John Ramsden.

The group discussed factors for considering inclusive environments, strategies for balancing occupant health and comfort with energy saving initiatives and how to communicate the valuable ways FMs are supporting the mental and physical wellbeing of occupants.
