More than half of facilities managers are expected to retire in the next 5-10 years. Decades of experience, building systems knowledge, and organizational problem solvers will soon be walking out the door. Now more than ever, it’s critical to partner with integrated facilities services partners you trust to nurture the next generation of facilities operations and management talent.
Stars on the Rise
What is it about some workers that make them outshine everyone else in their field? What ignites their passion and gives them a spark to achieve? In a company known for exceeding customer expectations, ESCFederal is proud to attract and nurture the next generation of facilities services rock stars who tirelessly and passionately go above and beyond, every day, and who are hungry to learn the facilities operations business through:
Nurturing the Next Generation Through Technology
Millennials are a generation born into technology and innovation. They already comprise roughly half the workforce, and by 2025 are expected to account for 75% of the global workforce. Having grown up with smartphones and Google, this next generation of facilities industry leaders are finding new ways to integrate technology and asset management software into building operations.
At ESCFederal, we believe that effective facilities services solutions are data-driven. That’s why we love mentoring this new generation of facilities professionals. Together, we combine innovation and technology with training, sustainability, and rigorous quality measurements to keep facilities safely operating at their best and extend the life of capital investments.
When it comes to training the next generation, there simply is no equal to hands-on knowledge. More than 100 employees have been with ESCFederal for 10 years or more, with many having served 20, 30, or 40+ years! These veteran facilities leaders possess a tremendous wealth of knowledge about industry best practices, and the specific maintenance histories and operational procedures of the buildings they serve. They also understand how important it is for our mentoring programs and systems to accelerate learning for those younger employees who are just beginning their careers in the facilities industry.
Staff loyalty and longevity have directly contributed to our company’s success over the last six decades. During these last two years of the pandemic, their performance has been nothing short of heroic. Our regional managers play a key role in nurturing the next generation of industry talent. More than 40% of our regional managers were promoted from within, with many having started in entry level positions. These regional managers know the ins and outs of every facet of their facilities and are one of the reasons ESCFederal has one of the highest client retention rates and lowest employee turnover in the industry.
Our people. Our passion. Our performance. Our integrated facilities services team is here to exceed your expectations for the next 10 years and beyond. Contact us today for a customized quote.
