The changes that are taking place in the various sectors
Vincent Schenkels, owner of The Enablers, got us thinking from the perspective of business services. “Perhaps 40% of facility services in business services will become redundant. He says that FM should take much more responsibility to ensure a healthy climate in the broad sense of the word. Healthy employees ensure a healthy return. The so-called Business Nomad puts the interests of the collective first and is very involved. How to facilitate this employee? FM has this knowledge and could make more use of the strategic position they occupy within an organization.
Gwan Kwee – psychotherapist with a long track record, took us into the world of GGZ Care and told us about the market forces within healthcare and how this affects the quality of GGZ care in a worrying way. The power of health insurers seems to have become much too great. They determine what is good and what is not based on general (financial) figures.
Piet Bakker – many years advisor on education for young children with “the wind against the wind”, shared his vision about what is going on in education. “We now know quite well what is needed for this group of children, but what is stopping us from actually doing that?” Education is also affected by the culture of accountability. In addition, the high workload caused in part by the accountability culture based on a lack of trust in professionals plays a major role.
Michel Tobé, head of Facility Services at the municipality of Capelle aan den IJssel, spoke from this government sector about the changed relationships between government and citizens. People seem to be looking for new connections and he gave appealing examples from his congregation.
Jan van de Venis, owner of JustLaw, among others, addressed the enormous challenge facing the industry from his position as an international expert in the field of sustainability and climate change: CO2 reduction and the energy transition.
Kees Veling, director of the Derkshoes elderly care in Drenthe, made us think about the way in which care for the elderly is currently being implemented. Can it also be done in another way? Or are the problems only due to shortages of personnel and budget. Is more of the same the solution or should other more sensible factors be considered?
