About the Company
The core business of EFM KW is the management and delivery of integrated facilities management services, either in partnership with our sister construction company, Bouygues on PFI / PPP deals, ETDE in Europe & Middle East or in our own right on outsourcing contracts for both the public and private sectors.
For each contract we aim to manage and deliver our contracted services by the direct employment of all operational, management and support staff. However, we recognise the need for specialist inputs in specific areas and the fact that in some cases it is more economic to employ subcontracted specialists for certain operations. In such cases we would expect to retain full management responsibility for the satisfactory delivery of the subcontracted service.
With our principal policy of directly employing staff wherever possible, we maintain excellent flexibility to deploy and re-deploy staff as necessary between sites to supplement the permanent site contingents. Maximising our directly employed staff also allows us to smooth out peaks and troughs in activity, and provide for contingency planning in the event of emergencies or absenteeism.
