The Facilitate website is the online magazine for the IWFM and contains news and views from the wider workplace and facilities management sector. The IWFM website is a resource of institute-related news and knowledge.
No. The content from the most recent issues of the magazine and the most current news stories, plus the job advertisements, are freely available but the archive is only available to IWFM members, as part of their membership package, and Facilitate subscribers.
IWFM members and Facilitate subscribers can access the full magazine via the IWFM site. Non-subscribers and non-members can view a taster edition of the magazine online. But there is far more on the website than we can fit in the magazine: each day we write at least five articles about what's happening in the workplace and facilities management sector. There are also more jobs online than in the hard copy of the magazine.
We write news and features in-house and employ freelance journalists and experts in the field. If you have an idea for a feature, please send a synopsis of 100-200 words to us at [email protected] or call 020 7880 6229. It should outline very briefly what the main idea is and what might be included in the feature. There are also opportunities to write short viewpoint pieces, practical explainer articles and legal updates. We will look at your suggestion and let you know quickly whether we want to take it forward. We also welcome letters about articles in FM World or the wider world. Please email [email protected]
In addition to the magazine, Facilitate publishes a daily email news service - the Facilitate Daily - which includes all the latest essential news about the workplace and facilities management sector including new business wins, mergers and acquisitions, financial results, market research, legislative updates and event reports. News for the Facilitate Daily should be sent to the news editor Herpreet Grewal at [email protected] - or you can call her on 020 7880 8544.
No. Although Facilitate is the magazine of the IWFM, the bulk of the editorial is completely independent. The IWFM supplies the copy for the IWFM pages which contains information about regional or group events.
