The ‘Fit-Out Futures’ group is a new network being launched by FIS to encourage and empower change by capturing and enhancing the thoughts, ideas and energy of the rising stars and those from diverse backgrounds within the sector. The Group will operate as a dynamic network that connects those from diverse backgrounds and younger people working in the community to share experience and add their insight into the work of FIS.

The group will be a platform for action; looking to harness ideas to help us evolve and ensure that we project a sector that is modern, responsive, inclusive and attractive to work in. Ultimately the programme will be determined by the group, but initially FIS Team will organise a number of meetings and events (physical and online) throughout the year.  Anyone wishing to join the Fit-Out Futures group should contact Michelle Armstrong

How the network will work:

How will we get things going

To kick things off we will host an initial round table meeting, drawing together key individuals from across the supply chain.  The aim of this meeting will be to introduce the concept of the Working Group and give those joining an opportunity to raise your ideas for shaping the future with like-minded people intent on making a difference.

Group Objectives:

  • Create a network that connect those from diverse backgrounds and help individuals improve their networks
  • To help promote and amplify positive initiatives and get the weight of FIS behind them
  • Ensure all voices in our community are heard and FIS activity reflects their needs
  • To be custodians of the FIS Respect Policy and ensure FIS events are designed to support all in the community
  • Tap into new perspectives to confront challenges and drive change
  • Harness ideas to support sector recruitment, school and college engagement etc
