Boutique FM company, Q3, has appointed Mark Hazelwood as Managing Director of the company’s new Integrated Facilities Management (IFM) business.
Since its inception four years ago, Q3 has taken a radically different approach to the provision of IFM services. Recognising that each client’s needs are unique, the company has created a bespoke services model for each new client, built from the ground up and tailored to meet their specific requirements. Hazelwood has been instrumental in translating this original IFM vision and strategy into reality, working with existing clients to successfully prove the model’s viability and value.
Q3 says with the business mobilising another new IFM contract in September, the time is now right for Hazelwood to spearhead the future development of this important element of Q3’s service proposition.
Q3 believes that client organisations wishing to focus on their own growth and development would “benefit enormously” from the Q3 model, because it “frees resource and removes the distraction created when clients try to manage the non-core, but nevertheless important, activities”.
Commenting on his appointment, Hazelwood said: “I am excited about this latest development at Q3. With my background in both FM Operations and IT, I feel well placed to blend the essential ingredients that make this unique type of IFM contract succeed – compliance, value, CSR and technology. Technology is the key element that will transform Integrated FM into Intelligent FM, making our service personalised and demand driven, not off-the-shelf.”
Creating a positive visitor experience in a Hybrid world of work
While some personnel are finally returning to the office – the great majority of organisations (up to 83 per cent) anticipate a hybrid mix of on-premises and working from home to continue for the foreseeable future.
This means that when it comes to providing access to the workplace, where once it was simply enough to maintain a welcoming reception for visitors, organisations today must also keep a close eye on access permissions in real-time to keep buildings safe and secure while ensuring they comply with compliance.
Pitney Bowes Smart Access Management in association with FMJ has produced a new White Paper which explains how to create a welcoming, actively managed environment for authorised people.
It explains how new Smart Access Management™ (SAM) delivers a complete, real-time and data-driven view of all your people, visitors and contractors, to help give you greater control and visibility.
