Three New Year’s resolutions for building managers
2022 is right on our doorstep. And when the clock inevitably strikes midnight and takes us into the new year, you may begin to think about how you want the next year to look in your career. If you work in building management, we’ve put together just a few New Year’s resolutions to help you put your best foot forward in 2022.
Update your databases
It can sometimes be easy to let our databases get away from us. When we’re on the go we don’t always put information in as efficiently or diligently as we could. Whether it’s a contractor or tenant database, taking the time to collate and update information is the perfect way to set the tone for 2022. Start by removing any contacts that are no longer needed, then double checking what information is up-to-date and what isn’t. It may take a while but it is completely worth it.
Improve your buildings overall performance
Improving your buildings overall performance is a key goal to set for the new year. One of the biggest ways to increase performance is consistent and proactive reporting and reviewing. Implementing the use of charts and reports allows you to identify where key areas can be improved and exactly how you can go about it. Ultimately this will lead to a more streamlined process – meaning you will be more efficient and productive.
Integrate the use of management software
Speaking of streamlining, nothing helps increase your workflow more than integrating a solid management software system. The great thing about technology is its ability to automate the mundane. Whether it’s calendar booking from tenants, contractor databases, or organising preventative maintenance – facility management software allows you to create a workflow that reduces friction.
