WHEN FM PROVIDERS AND ORGANISATIONS JOIN FORCES: 7 STEPS TO THE PERFECT PARTNERSHIP

Our time at Facilities Show 2019 got us thinking; no matter how much trends change, or the sector is challenged, there will always be a need for robust relationships between facilities management (FM) providers and their clients. So, how do you go about creating the perfect partnership? With seven important steps. That’s how…

FACILITIES MANAGEMENT: SHOUT LOUD, THINK SMART AND ADD VALUE

In a recent blog, we spoke about our time at Facilities Show 2019 and some of the challenges, trends and predictions that caught our attention. Fast forward a few weeks and the 300 North team have put together this second blog to discuss our take on some of the key messages from this year’s Show. Join us as we delve into themes shaping Facilities Management (FM) and touch on key considerations influencing the sector.

CHARITY UPDATE - CALLUM HALL JULY 19

300 North are proud to sponsor Paralympic athlete Callum Hall. Our last update from Callum was in May, so we thought we'd check in with him to see how his training has been going over the past couple of months.

Callum begins "So the last few months have been slightly strange for me in terms of training. I made the decision to move back to road racing rather than pursuing track racing. I was struggling to enjoy training for the track and my concentration was lacking. I’ve always had a love hate relationship with track racing; putting in many hours of training to push in races that last 50 seconds to 4 minutes is perhaps not for me but slogging it out for 1 hour and a half is! I’m glad I've come to realise that now, bring on more endurance distances!

This leads to my next block of training, now trying to increase the miles and length of effort again to suit 26.2 mile races rather than 400m".

FACILITIES SHOW 2019: CHALLENGES, TRENDS AND PREDICTIONS

We love working as a team from our offices in Leeds & Newcastle but it’s also important to us that we spend time away from our working environment, keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in the Facilities Management (FM) industry.

This allows us to understand any challenges, trends or predictions that might impact our business, our clients and our candidates. It’s also the reason we schedule one particular annual event into our diaries - the world's largest dedicated FM event that attracts thousands of people from all over the world - AKA Facilities Show.

MINDFUL EMPLOYER LEEDS GUEST BLOG FOR 300 NORTH

Let’s keep the mental health and wellbeing conversation going in our workplaces!

Everyone has mental health, in the same way that we all have physical health. At times we can struggle to maintain good physical health due to different reasons, such as being too busy and tired to fit in a trip to the gym, or to cook dinner so we order a takeaway. Similarly, we have to work at maintaining good mental health where certain factors might make this a challenge. The workplace can often be an environment of high pressure and stress with impending deadlines and the expectations of exceeding targets. This atmosphere can be challenging for people experiencing mental health difficulties and create barriers to accessing the right support from their employers. 

HAPPY WORLD FM DAY

It’s Wednesday 15th May and that means only one thing for the global facilities management (FM) community - World FM Day!

This annual celebration highlights the significant contribution FM makes to the global economy and recognises the essential work of FM professionals. The theme for 2019 is ‘celebrating global ISO FM Standards’, which is a nod to the welcome standardisation of FM practices internationally.

CHARITY UPDATE - CALLUM HALL

It's a while since we provided an update on Paralympic Athlete Callum Hall (who we are delighted to be sponsoring); So we've asked him to bring everyone up to speed on what he's been up to since the end of 2018.

Callum explains "In January I competed in my first marathon of the year in Dubai where I finished 7th. Unfortunately I had food poisoning the week before, which drained my energy levels and affected my lead up into the race, however I still pushed 1 minute outside my PB, a good sign that training has been working!
