The Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management and IT services business Ricoh have joined forces to help workplace and facilities professionals to extract the value that effective workplaces can bring.
IWFM and Ricoh will be working together to help industry professionals understand the cultural, process and technology drivers behind people-centred workplaces.
The launch sees a new 'Creating Better Workplaces' web hub, offering a one-stop source of workplace essentials such as insight, guidance and practical learning opportunities.
Chris Moriarty, director of insight and engagement at IWFM, said: "The growing recognition by organisations that their people's performance is driven by physical environments marks our profession's greatest opportunity. As the facilities profession pivots to become a central player in people and business performance, our insights work is laying down a rich bank of content and development opportunities to help professionals grow with this change.
"The partnership we've created with Ricoh is a strong launch pad for us to open the workplace debate and we are looking forward engaging with professionals, sharing guidance and insights on how to build better workplaces."
Chas Moloney, marketing director at Ricoh, said: "Ricoh recognises that change is driven by imaginative thinking, so partnering with IWFM on an initiative as important as helping to shape and support tomorrow's workplace leaders is directly in line with our broader aim to help companies and individuals transform the way they work and harness their collective knowledge."
The partnership is expected to generate further insights to help individuals and organisations understand the space, process, technology and cultural matters that combine to create people-centred workplaces and improved outcomes.Visit the hub at: www.iwfm.org.uk/better-workplaces
