Facilities Matters : November 2019

A new decade, a new dawn for FM?

As the nights start to draw in and autumn gets well underway, many of us will start to reflect on the past year and look forward to the 12 months ahead.

But as 2019 draws to a close, there also comes the added excitement and speculation that accompanies the start of a new decade.

What will define this new decade and how will it be remembered? In the previous century, ‘the Roaring Twenties’ were characterised by new freedoms in social, economic and cultural aspects of life. That decade was fundamentally shaped by the aftermath of the First World War, and so what events and issues will shape the 2020s? And how will this filter down to the FM industry?

For Facilities Matters, 2019 has obviously been a significant year, having launched the magazine in March. Since then the response has been fantastic, so many thanks for your support. This is our last issue of 2019, but we look forward to bringing you plenty more.
