Ten facility managers from Cofely Besix Facility Management receive official accreditation from the Middle East Facilities Management Association (MEFMA). The team has become the first official MEFMA Associate facility managers in the region, having completed five days of extensive training in operations and management, project management, finance and business essentials, sustainability in facilities management and leadership and strategy. “The key for customers is in knowing that they get an accredited standard of knowledge and knowhow in the manager. This allows the customer to have confidence that their assets are in the best hands going forward allowing the process of outsourcing will have the greatest benefits,” said Ian Harfield, General Manager of Cofely Besix Facility Management.
“It is always rewarding as a manager to see staff developing and even more so when through MEFMA when we have been able progress their learning on a structured and accredited course, which goes with our ethos of Cofely Besix Facility Management adding value to our staff,” he added. Supported by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency (RERA) as a non-profit association, MEFMA provides a dedicated platform for facility management professionals, wider construction industry stakeholders and owner associations. “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Cofely Besix on their most auspicious certificates ceremony, and congratulate them overall for their effort and success rate,” said Ahmed Hussain, member of the MEFMA Board of Directors.
“This marks the vision of Cofely Besix to educate their staff highlighting their determination to improve their overall performance with a competent, educated workforce. Being one of the MEFMA Board of Directors I am very proud to see the growth of MEFMA and its contribution to the region’s FM industry.”
