Organizations looking to attract top talent should look to become more inclusive by providing a safe space and work environment for their employees, especially those with disabilities.

And no one knows more about building a safe environment for disabled employees than Cushman & Wakefield’s facilities and engineering arm, C&W Services.

Speaking to HRM Asia, Natalie Craig, Managing Director, C&W Services Singapore, discussed why the facilities management industry is pivotal to the lives of disabled people.

“The facilities management (FM) industry first and foremost, serves the built environment. The role of FM is to integrate people, places, and processes within that built environment, with the goal of enhancing productivity within the space and supporting the well-being of its occupants,” she said. As people of all abilities occupy and use the built environment, FM has an important role to ensure accessibility and adaptability and safety and risk management.
