International Workplace announced as finalist at i-FM technology in FM awards

International Workplace is thrilled to have been shortlisted for 2018’s i-FM Technology in FM Awards, for its design, development and implementation of a new set of technologies to transform learning in the FM sector.

The annual i-FM Technology in FM Awards recognise companies and organisations in the facilities sector that are utilising new technologies to achieve exemplary improvements in business processes and performance in the world of the connected workplace.

Since 2014, International Workplace’s strategy has been to become the leading learning and development provider of workplace management knowledge for national and multinational employers, utilising new technology to create effective eLearning. With the creation of a brand new learning platform, and an innovative new health and safety course to showcase its functions, this goal is being realised.

International Workplace’s Managing Director, David Sharp, says:

“It is fantastic to have been shortlisted for this award, because there’s such a story behind it. Almost exactly three years ago to this day, I stood at our Executive Centre in London and announced not only that we were changing our name from Workplace Law to International Workplace, but that it also heralded a shift from being a publisher and training provider to a technology business. What little we understood of the challenges that lay ahead!

“Since then, we’ve assembled a team of talented in-house developers, designers and educational specialists, and through their focus and determination we have built an all-new learning platform – SELMA 3.0 – that can interact seamlessly with any organisation’s learning management system.

“Our new IOSH Managing Safely v.5.0 eLearning course, delivered via the SELMA 3.0 platform, has already been shortlisted at the Learning Technologies Awards this year. We’re delighted that SELMA 3.0 has now been recognised for its technological innovation in the FM sector.”

The Technology in FM Awards are open to entrants from across the facilities management industry and its many associated sectors.

The finalists include:

  • ENGIE – DC Clarity LC: Data centre BIM platform
  • FSI – Concept Advantage: Suite of single-purpose user-focused apps
  • International Workplace – Selma 3.0: Online learning management system
  • UHUB: Online training software for cleaning staff
  • Yodiwo: Enterprise Internet of Things application enablement platform.


The winners of the awards will be announced at Workplace Futures, the annual conference held at London’s docklands in February 2018.
