A Mobius officer working in a hybrid security/FM role is a fully engaged, fully utilised resource. Boredom and complacency (the perennial enemies of high quality security) are eliminated and the officer becomes fully integrated with the host organisation.
Security – far from being compromised – is improved by the addition of related responsibilities.
The officer comes to know and appreciate the importance of every aspect of estate operation and management. They become familiar with and form close relationships with end-users, tenants, subcontractors and their senior FM team. They develop a more rounded understanding of how they fit in the pattern of the operation; they deliver better service.
Their FM colleagues are released from the task lists that are delegated to the Mobius team. This time is now available to be redeployed to the advantage of the host organisation.
Suppliers and subcontractors are properly supervised in their activities – their performance may improve as a result.
Simple fixes are learned and can be added to the Mobius responsibilities. A practical (and real) example; a building has a complex air conditioning system which is prone to regular service interruptions due to a minor electrical fault which cannot be traced. The fix is to reboot the system by following a particular sequence that requires no engineering expertise and which poses no risk to the individual performing the task. The specialist contractor charges £125 call-out plus £85 per hour on site – £210 each visit. Mobius learns the fix and applies it on an as-needed basis – at no additional cost.
Engaging with Mobius on a hybrid security/FM role is easy, it just requires a small investment of time in designing the role. The rewards can be significant, and they evolve as your organisation does.
