FM is a 24×7 and 365 day job. It is a every challenging job. In one word it is a “Chowkidaar” job said one of the FM professionals. FMs are enablers, they are go getters, they are all rounders said some participants. We are faceless professionals.
We do a thankless job added a FM. But it is now becoming more and more professional, he added. FMs plays a mom and dad role to the employees at their work place informed another member of TFMC.
Facilities Management is critical to the competitiveness, efficiency, and profitability of an organization, a role that was largely overlooked in the past when Facility Management was seen overwhelmingly as a mere support function.
The hospitality implies warmth, respect and protection. It is about receiving guests in a spirit of goodwill—especially strangers from other lands. Hospitality in the recent past expanded its defined roles expanded to other segments such as restaurants, hotels, hostels, guest houses, entertainment, sporting event, cruises and what not. So there is a lot of synergy between Tourism & Hospitality, Hotel Management and Facilities Management. Hence this MoU commented Chinnam Reddy and Satyanarayana.
