The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) recently released a white paper on factors impacting retention and advancement of women in the facility management industry.

The report, Factors Impacting Retention and Advancement of Women in Facility Management, brings to light the underrepresentation of women in senior facility management roles and emphasizes the need to address the high turnover rate among women in the industry. According to a press release, by addressing such challenges, IFMA aims to assist in the recruitment and retention of women through targeted strategies such as mentorship.

“Our industry is being revitalized by a more diverse and inclusive workforce, adding unique viewpoints and new approaches to corporate culture, health and safety, smart and responsible workplaces, and meaningful and rewarding work,” said Don Gilpin, IFMA president and CEO.

The complete report can be downloaded from IFMA’s knowledge library.
