Almost every organization has offices, warehouses, manufacturing centres, data centres, or other facilities to support their business needs, whether in the private or public sector.

Facility managers and property managers are the stewards of the space their organizations occupy or the assets their organizations own. They get involved in issues ranging from technical to environmental to human resource to space and leasing and even real estate strategy to provide productive, safe, comfortable work environments for their organization’s employees.

People in the industry can have many different titles and roles, from specialists in leasing, engineering, energy, environment, ergonomics, finance, and more right up to head of the facility management (FM) department, with titles like Office Manager, Facility Manager, Asset Manager, Property Manager, Director of Facilities, and even Vice President of Facilities.
