June Charities FM Group meeting looks at FM & Wellbeing
By Annette McGill

The Charities FM Group focussed on the topic of  "Facilities Management and Wellbeing" at its meeting on 7 June 2017.  

The main speaker was Rebecca Pearce, Head of Sustainability at international property consultants CBRE.  Pearce discussed the organisational benefits of considering wellbeing in property design and refurbishment. 

Charities FM Group members then discussed different elements of wellbeing, including agile working spaces and what steps the members of the Charities FM Group were taking to promote wellbeing.

The meeting was hosted by and organised by Sean Bridge of Friends of the Earth, and the meeting concluded with a tour of FoE’s offices in South London.

Sean Bridge commented: “I, and others, found this morning very useful, not only the wellbeing elements, but being able to network with other facilities (charity) people as a few felt quite isolated in their day-to-day work.”
