World Facilities Management Day is observed annually on Wednesday of the second full week of May and this year, it falls on May 17. It’s to celebrate the contributions of individuals working in facilities management, ensuring the safety and comfort of an environment. Without their contributions, we can’t imagine what the conditions of offices or hospitals would be like. Thanks to them, the mechanical and electrical services are maintained, the cleaning is taken care of, and the security is on alert. The purpose of the day is to appreciate and recognize the people involved in facilities management.
