What Do We Do with All This Space?
May 22, 2024 | 12 PM ET-US

The purpose of the office has dramatically changed, resulting in a much different outlook on the future of real estate. Change like this has never happened before, and it’s left a huge path of chaos in its wake. Now we are faced with a heated debate over the need for traditional office space in today’s “work from anywhere” culture – with employees ecstatic about the flexibility and freedom of hybrid, and employers fearful of loss of control, productivity, and the impact on the bottom line. Join Darlene Pope and Eddy Wagoner as they discuss this current state of return to office (RTO), the fear of the unknown, and the short and long term impact on commercial and corporate real estate.

Preventative & Deferred Maintenance Reality Check: Fine-Tune Your Equipment Inventory Knowledge

In this presentation, we shed light on the fact that while buildings are constantly changing, maintenance teams chase a moving target in knowing where equipment is in the field. A challenge associated with preventive maintenance for buildings is locating and taking inventory of all the equipment needing attention, all while buildings are constantly changing due to renovations, construction, labor shortages and retirements. Teams often rely on memory of legacy staff, but when long-time employees retire, facility knowledge goes away too. Full IFMA members can access the video for free, April 1- June 30, 2024.
