ABOUT THE REVIEWThe Stoddart Review continues the work of an industry giant: Chris Stoddart, MCIOB, FBIFM.
Formed by the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) and founding partners privileged to have worked with Chris, it aims to raise awareness among business leaders of the importance of the workplace and real estate as a key performance driver. It is independent and cross-industry.
Much has been said in the media about the productivity gap, but little connection has been made to the vital role that the workplace can play. The Review unequivocally makes the case and shares best practice, leading opinion and data.
The Review seeks to encourage business leadership teams to ask deeper and more probing questions about how well their workplaces are contributing to the success of their organisations.
The Stoddart Review is a not-for-profit initiative. The founding partners of The Crown Estate, Cushman & Wakfield, Joanna Lloyd-Davies and Polly Plunket-Checkemian, with BIFM acting as host organisation, have volunteered their time. So too have supporting organisations, business leaders, industry experts and our research partners, namely Leesman Index and Sheffield Hallam University, to highlight the workplace as a key lever to increasing UK productivity.
The Review poses many questions and seeks to provide both evidential and experiential-based answers, but it is the business leaders and workplace professionals who are encouraged through this report to take this conversation forward.
