Energy and Facility Management Training Tips

Organizational profits and revenues are dependent on proper energy and facility management. As companies continue to grow, this naturally increases the need to improve energy and facility management training programs, outcomes and capabilities.

Energy and Facility Management Training Tips

Most companies will benefit from utilizing external experts and by following the suggestions below.

Benchmark Current Performance

Facility managers should conduct comprehensive assessments of current training programs. This should include reviews of attendance, curricula content, organizational support and real-world benefits. These assessments may reveal that initial training and new orientation is strong, but staff support and development for existing supervisors is weak. The results may question the effectiveness of training content that does not use optimal delivery methods, competency-based models and standard teaching techniques. Sometimes, these assessments will only identify new opportunities for improving sustainability, maintenance and cost savings.

Define Program Goals

The next step is to define the current and future objectives by collaboration between managers and senior leaders. This will help to determine energy goals, enhance maintenance protocols and improvement communication between management and staff. Common goals focus on cross-training and leadership development. For example, facility management training that involves new IT systems and solutions need the input of seasoned managers who are extremely familiar with the property, equipment and buildings. District and regional managers need cross-training to understand each other’s operational updates, new capabilities and best practices.

Track Progress

The final step is to monitor the progress of training activities through status meetings, data analytics and performance metrics. For example, energy, facility, inventory and maintenance information systems should be used to compile insightful reports on needs and progress.  Many large companies find it’s easier to employ the services of a third-party asset optimization company because this helps with capital planning, project development, risk management and engineering projects. Either way, companies should focus on long-term optimization solutions that offer strategic direction, budget predictability and comprehensive support.

A company with multiple location doesn’t necessarily have to set up separate training programs. Instead, they may select the most successful program that can be shared, customized and standardized. Companies that better manage their energy consumption and facility maintenance will minimize problems, remain competitive and more compliant with government regulations.
