Team of the Year Finalists

Do you work in or lead a high-performance team? Do you think your team deserves to be recognised as the best there is the workplace and facilities management sector?

The Team of the Year Award focuses on the contribution your team makes to your employer, your client (if you’re a service provider), and to other stakeholders. The winning entry will showcase your achievements and demonstrate that the success you’ve achieved is the result of a structured approach to team-working.

The judges will be looking for evidence of what makes a high-performance team tick: a vision and purpose that is aligned with corporate objectives; clearly defined team roles; mutual trust and values; effective communication both within the team and with internal and external stakeholders; a focus on collaboration and building team culture; development of individuals within the team as well as the team itself; strong leadership; and successful performance outcomes.

The award recognises the team of workplace and facilities management professionals who can demonstrate all the hallmarks of a high-performance team and who are an inspiration to our sector.
