In its first year, the multi-year agreement will provide training for 1,220 JLL professionals, in support of JLL’s vision for the workplace of the future. Following the Americas implementation, JLL will offer the FMP program to its facilities management employees in other regions around the world.

“Today’s FMs are essential to driving employee engagement, on-site experience, and creating spaces that are cost effective and engaging,” said Sanjay Rishi, Americas CEO, Work Dynamics, JLL. “The FMP designation recognizes those individuals who are equipped with the advanced facilities management expertise and soft skills to deliver exceptional value to organizations.”
