A willingness to adapt, the ability to transform service and an enthusiasm for going beyond expectations for customers and the wider community are among the themes to emerge from entries received for the IWFM’s Covid-19 Response Award.
The award, set up to celebrate the extraordinary work of workplace and facilities professionals in combating Covid-19, has seen a total of 69 entries – a number beyond all expectations. The difficult task of selecting a shortlist to put to a IWFM members and peers, who will determine the eventual award winners, has begun.
“We asked for projects that encapsulate the spirit and professionalism of workplace and facilities management at its best,” said the Impact Awards Chair of Judges Julie Kortens, “and there’s no doubt that the stories we’ve seen in these entries do exactly that. The ingenuity and willingness of the sector to take on entirely new ways of working to help in an unprecedented situation does us proud. Selecting a shortlist, and then the eventual winning entries, are unenviable tasks - all deserve recognition in some form.”
Readers will be able to select from the finished shortlist once everything has been finalised by the Awards panel.
