Facilities management (FM) is the organizational function of integrating people, place and process within a built environment in order to improve people's quality of life and the efficiency of the core business. It is all about looking after the buildings and people working therein. Many disciplines and services, from building maintenance, human resource management, vendor relations to safety and security fall under the umbrella of FM. Its employees operate in a variety of settings, including offices, hotels and hospitals as well as sports and recreational arenas, logistical centers, care homes and educational institutions.
