IPM Global Survey
PARTICIPATING IN THE GLOBAL SURVEY
• What is the place management industry like in your country?
• What are place managers’ skills gaps?
• Is their remuneration in line with the challenges of their role?
• Exactly what tasks are they responsible for?
•How do these answers compare with other place management practitioners across the globe?
For place management membership organisations or government departments/agencies, the answers to these questions are essential for understanding key trends within the industry. Whether you support town centre managers, neighbourhoods, shopping centres or the managers of sporting venues or other places, such knowledge is necessary for effectively helping your members, or your region or country, to make their places better.
IPM has launched the Global Survey in collaboration with organisations involved in any type of place management, anywhere in the World, who are keen to know more about the people who are making our places better - for example, to date IPM has conducted the Global Survey in partnership with place management organisations in the UK, Sweden and Australia. IPM provides all the online technology allowing place managers to submit their responses quickly and easily, we collate the information and even produce the customised reports. All participating organisations have to do is ask their place management contacts to take part. IPM even offer the survey in any language.
Your organisation could benefit from gaining a clear, thorough and confidential insight into your place management industry through a report which reveals valuable details concerning; what place managers do, what support they require and how this relates to other place managers. Your organisation will gain insights into information such as:
• Characteristics of place management initiatives
• Staff development
• Training provisions
• Professional backgrounds of individuals
• Skills and knowledge gaps
• Salary structure
As well as being able to utilise this valuable information; as part of the process, you will join a wider research community with place management initiatives across the world contributing to an increasingly comprehensive aggregate databank of the global industry. Whilst Individual survey data is kept confidential within the IPM and shared only with the partner organisation, aggregate anonymous data is shared. This means that by joining the IPM Global Survey, you will contribute to, and benefit from, global data on place management, allowing you to understand how the industry is developing, sub-sector by sub-sector, region by region, country by country.
With minimum effort your organisation can become part of a wider research community.
