A Matt Osborne Podcast interview with EFS Facilities Services Group CEO, Tariq Chauhan – A World Leader in Facilities Management.
EFS Facilities Services Group CEO Tariq Chauhan had the pleasure to join Matt Osborne’s podcast “The Building Manager” and discussed everything from the Global FM industry to how the market is evolving despite all the challenges. The podcast interview was from stem to stem a brilliant explanatory piece from the start.
The Group CEO Tariq Chauhan enlightened the podcast and walked us through his Economics and financial background as an economics graduate, a Harvard Business School Master Degree holder and his Banking and Technology experience to the CEO and Co-founder of EFS Facilities Services Group.
The Group CEO recalled how EFS evolved and the accomplishments made from a company existing in 3 countries and managing 17 to 20 clients to a Group of companies that extends in 21+ countries and deals with more than 520 clients worldwide.
For Tariq Chauhan EFS Group CEO, EFS is a people-first company with a shared vision that mobilizes its exceptionally well-qualified workforce from diverse nationalities. The passion he has for people and its blue-collar workforce is a radically different perspective from the industry, which qualifies them as the main force driver in the industry in his eyes. Their health, safety, and welfare are top priorities for Group CEO Tariq Chauhan.
ORGANISATION & STRUCTURE
This enriching exchange brought out vital discussion about the people-first organisation, its strong workforce trained in the state-of-the-art systems and beneficiate training through an integrated L&D, Transparency via system technology, business strategy, supply chain and most importantly, alignment to the economic dynamic. Diversity, inclusion, and a blue-collar workforce were also discussed and crucial for the EFS Group CEO as a people-first organisation.
Lastly, some challenges include the need for educational institutions to upgrade their curriculum to match FM demands as the current one is outdated. The industry growth and Job training cost constitute online training, coaching and direct job training to perfectly fit with job positions.
