      IFM is all about people , so having the correct resources is always the challenge in an emerging market. Therefore sourcing the correct caliber candidates who have the right qualifications and attitude is paramount to the success of the business. We then run various programmes where we train these people and inculcate the JLL culture – the industry is evolving and in the end its all about knowledge sharing, which is why access to international best practice and continuous improvement is so important. Happy to share your views?
