IFMA Foundation Global Workforce Initiative – Rebuilding the Supply of Professional Facilities Managers

Join us for this Virtual Member Meeting where we will hear from Diane Levine, Executive Director of the IFMA Foudation on how we can all contribute to Rebuilding the Supply of FM's.

The IFMA Foundation encourages FM as a Career of Choice. Through the Global Workforce Initiative (GWI), the Foundation and our volunteers are encouraging students to consider a career path in Facility Management.

FM is facing a severe lack of trained professionals entering the workforce. In the next five to 15 years, more than 50 percent of the existing FM workforce will retire. The IFMA Foundation has accredited degrees in FM around the world with more than 4,000 FM students enrolled in these 30 degree programs. However, the annual demand for new FM’s entering the profession is far greater than this number – with some companies individually looking to hire more than a quarter of this number of students annually. Graduates of these accredited programs enjoy a nearly 100 percent placement rate, typically with multiple job offers and opportunities.

To help fill this growing workforce gap, the Foundation’s Global Workforce Initiative connects education, training, support services and credentials for FM while engaging national, regional and local employers to help meet their needs while strengthening their workforces and local economies. FM educational programs address high school, community college and higher education institutions.
