About this session:

If you have been in the industry long enough, you have likely heard numerous doozies like: “the Facilities Department is not a profit center”, “facilities is a necessary evil”, and “you are just overhead.” While the facilities department does not necessarily manufacture the widgets or process the transactions of our respective organizations, it does impact how well and how fast revenue generating functions occur.

Management and even facility staff typically label the department as a cost center and not an enabler of profit, however this session aims to identify steps for quantifying, tracking, and communicating the facility department’s positive impact to revenue generation.

1. Discuss the relative impact facility operations has on the bottom line.
2. Identify metrics and benchmarks regarding facility effect on productivity.
3. Review means for tracking and reporting productivity impact.
4. Address tips for documenting, communicating, and selling the “revenue” facility operations drives to the bottom line.
