The facilities services industry celebrates International Women’s Day.

The final installment of our International Women’s Day series is about the opportunity for women in the facilities field. It’s an industry for problem-solvers and people who enjoy working closely with others. And it’s an industry full of opportunity. Of the 3.55 million people employed in key roles in the facilities services industry, an estimated 1.05 million are nearing retirement age in the U.S. alone.

Women give advice on how to excel in the facilities management industry.

C&W encourages women to pursue a career in the facilities management industry.

Building a better workplace.
