They ensure that an organisation has the most suitable working environment for its employees and their activities.
Responsibilities & Duties for Facilities Manager Roles

Facilities managers generally focus on using best business practice to improve efficiency, by reducing operating costs while increasing productivity. This is a wide field with a diverse range of responsibilities, which are dependant on the structure and size of the organisation.
