Darlene Frantz, CFM, LEED AP is Executive Director of Corporate Real Estate & Facilities Management and Janel Abbass-O'Neill is a Senior Facilities Manager at ManTech in Washington, DC. Mike Petrusky asks Darlene and Janel to discuss some of the unique challenges and opportunities they have encountered while working for a major government services firm specializing in both federal and civilian defense and intelligence agencies. Living in today’s fast changing world of FM and CRE requires a team effort when executing successful strategies for site selection, lease negotiations, construction planning, and FM operations. Mike, Darlene, and Janel discuss the shifting expectations of employees and the type of space they want to see as the war for talent drives a people-first approach. Topics include government contracting versus the private sector, coworking as an option, SCIFs, and leveraging technology to deliver attractive workspaces. With two guests on this episode, we also get a double-dose of “podcast karaoke” that will get everyone up and dancing!
