To learn more about global FM Hospitality Group, CBRE and Sodexo organized the first Global FM Summit on May 21st in the sustainable QO Hotel in Amsterdam. 60 FM/RE leaders from a broad range of multinational companies were brought together to share their knowledge and experiences in the Global FM journey.

Global FM Journey

An increasing number of multinational companies are organizing their facility management and corporate real estate management at a global or regional level. As a result, collaboration between FM departments in different countries is becoming more relevant, global FM-departments emerge, FM providers are offering worldwide solutions and global contracts are gaining popularity.

What’s the best way to organize FM within a multinational company?

The Summit started with a great story from Martijn Roordink about Spaces and how they got global. Fridoline van Binsbergen and Maurice Verwer shared their insights about how they have organized FM & RE within Shell and PwC. Jesper Svensson from Tetrapak and Roel Stroeken & Guido Meijer from Philips took us along their considerations and choices in sourcing. After all, Xavier Perrin explained how Microsoft realized change based on measurements and data.

FM & RE can be of great importance in being distinctive and attractive as organization. Take the strategic role and change from service provider to business partner. It’s all about employee experience. In this way, does it make sense to organize FM/RE globally to add value?

It really is a journey how to organize, source and change! There isn’t just one solution. Make sure you align your FM organization and services to the ambitions and values of your organization. Give frameworks and guidelines, but also room for local flavors. Learn during your journey, keep improving and invest in the partnership. Develop the collaboration and explore how to win together! The use of data can help you justify choices.
