Facility Management is everywhere around you
Facility management companies provide, amongst others, cleaning, maintenance, security, food service and energy management services to corporations and public organisations with large and/or many buildings or venues.
Facility management companies have huge workforces that are outsourced to their clients.
In the stadium of your favourite football team, for example, FM companies provide security teams, entrance tickets checkers, people working at the food stands, hostesses for the VIP areas or after-match cleaning teams.
In an airport, for instance, cleaners and luggage handlers are provided. And in a big office building, FM companies look after the maintenance of climate installations, take care of the catering in the central restauration, clean the premises at night or receive visitors at the reception desks, amongst others.
