Employee Engagement Representatives
The Facilities Management Diversity, Inclusion, and Respect Committee has started a department-wide initiative to have Employee Engagement Representatives from all areas of Facilities Management. These representatives support the committee’s goals to create an engaging environment that celebrates employees, improve supervisor-employee relationships and provide employee support. Representatives are employee volunteers who make their colleagues aware of ongoing programs and opportunities. Representatives also receive feedback from employees about ways to improve employee engagement and inclusion and report back to the DIR Committee for discussion and consideration.
