Facilities Maintenance Teams

The Facilities Maintenance (FM) Department has strategic advisory teams that are tasked to explore, suggest, and assist in implementing positive changes within our organization. As is deemed necessary, teams are created and dissolved as new challenges confront the organization. At present, we have five active teams:

  1. Equipment Acquisition and Preventative Maintenance Team
  2. Hiring Team
  3. Leadership Team
  4. Quality Improvement/Chemical Team
  5. Training Team.

All teams have four or more members and an assigned FM Manager as Coach. The Coach provides a charge for the team as well as guidance and direction as the team examines and explores ways of improving service to our customers and keeping Facilities Maintenance updated with industry innovations. Membership on each team is by invitation of that team's Coach and consists of personnel from within the Facilities Maintenance organization and, in some instances, staff that have a stake in topics addressed by the team. Each team has, in addition to the Coach, a Chairperson, a Scribe, and, in some cases, a co-Chairperson.

The Equipment Acquisition and Preventative Maintenance Team provides a process whereby all FM powered equipment is acquired, inspected, and cleaned on a predetermined schedule, as well as a process for recording compliance with the equipment maintenance schedule.

The Hiring Team provides and participates in a process through which the highest quality applicants can be selected and hired, based on the FM mission, vision, and values.

The Leadership (or Coordinator) Team provides support for the FM mission, vision, and values, encourages consistency in processes, and encourages greater personal productivity throughout the organization.

The Quality Improvement/Chemical Team provides an ongoing, systematic process of product evaluation that will offer the best opportunity for the selection, control, and utilization of cost effective materials.

The Training Team provides training opportunities that will serve as a foundation upon which all preparation for upward mobility can be built.
