Emerging Workplace Leaders (EWL) are a collective group of professionals within the workplace and facilities management sector. Our unifying mission is to create a community and platform that enables emerging workplace leaders to connect and accelerate their personal & professional growth. This is achieved through events, award recognition and sector collaboration.
Our Core Values
Emerging Workplace Leaders has a history which dates back to 2004 when the Young Managers Forum (YMF) was formed in affiliation with the Facilities Management Association.
After only 3 years, the YMF was a recognised industry forum and in 2007, we partnered with the PFM Awards to launch the ‘Young Leader of the Year Award’. Find more information the YLOTY page on this website.
2012 saw us join forces with The Building Futures Group and after another 4 years of success, the YMF became its own self-funded entity.
The EWL has come only 3 years after this in an attempt to re-invigorate the forum, and the industry. We believe that whilst focusing on three key elements of Membership, Inspiration and Giving Back, with the foundations of our new core values; we can truly shape the industry and provide a community and platform to enable emerging workplace leaders to connect and accelerate their personal & professional growth. This will be achieved through events, award recognition and sector collaboration.
