Facilities Management what is the best form of hiring for your company?

Christian Mina • 2/24/2023

With the main purpose of promoting improvements in people's quality of life and their productivity, the function of Facilities Management is the integration of various services and activities necessary for the proper functioning of an office or logistics warehouse.

From the proper planning and management of services such as cleaning, office supplies, internal logistics and storage, reception, security, motoboys, mail delivery, among others, this activity improves the main support processes of a corporation.

This set of services that Facilities Management encompasses can be contracted in two ways:

Managing agent
Contracts are signed between the applicant and service providers, but the manager can mediate the search for suppliers, qualification, determination of scope, SLAs and still be responsible for managing services after contracting

The applicant signs a contract with the manager and from then on the contracts are signed between the manager and service providers, so that all processes described above are the full responsibility of the manager.

Both models aim to add value to the corporation. The main point to be evaluated is which option will best meet the needs of the company, within each reality, including optimization and costs.

Technology, organization and integration
When the option chosen is direct contracting, the manager needs to have full attention in managing supplier contracting, bureaucratic processes, monitoring and the smooth running of this ecosystem.

However, when the company chooses to have its Facilities Management managed by a consultancy specialized in real estate services, such contracts are optimized and integrated.

This type of hiring can be done in two ways: when contracts are signed between the company and suppliers, with the consultancy as an intermediary for management, or when the company signs a direct contract with the manager, who becomes responsible for all processes .
Some of the main advantages of relying on Cushman & Wakefield's Facilities Management services are:

• Integration of outsourced services, generating savings in the financial aspect
• Security of contracts with companies legally and legally able to perform the functions
• Investment planning, meeting the company's demands and costs
• Rendering of accounts on services delivered

All of these benefits are part of a wide range of services needed by companies that, when they have the expertise of a consultancy in the field, can count on complete monitoring of deliveries. Another advantage - in addition to making the process less complex - is savings, both in costs and administrative time.
