Happy New Year 2019!

2018 was a year of advancement—from Leadership meeting with our Board to discuss current and future projects to the implementation of BOMI's new Learning Portal as an upgraded eLearning platform for learners. BOMI International continues to improve its practices and systems to better officiate your needs and career development.

 

LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

Learning & Development has been working to modernize and advance BOMI’s learning experiences and programs.

In May of 2018, BOMI unveiled our newest learning experiences: Online Self-Paced and Live Virtual Learning. Online Self-Paced (OSP) is an independent learning experience enhancing our current Self-Study delivery method by allowing learners the use of BOMI's Learning Portal. We’ve debuted five initial courses and are working on adding three more to the mix by Fall 2019!

In Fall 2018, we began an 11-part Live Virtual Learning (LVL) Pilot Series with Cushman & Wakefield. This program allowed Cushman & Wakefield employees, who work at various locations across the country, to receive live instruction and materials to follow along during each session, as well as, resources to review on their own time.

Another exciting advancement is our upgraded BOMI Learning Portal that launched in October of 2018! This virtual learning ecosystem enables learners to access program content and monitor progress real-time while joining a larger community of peers and instructors.


In addition to these new learning options, we're working to make your lifelong learning with BOMI even easier by upgrading our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) achievement recognition to eCertificates. This enhancement allows learners to receive confirmation of CPD achievement immediately via e-mail once requirements are met!

MARKETING UPDATE

To begin 2018, Marketing launched the BOMI Brief eNewsletter. A weekly roundup of topics, including latest announcements, featured courses, and upcoming events, helping you stay up to date on property and facility management industry news. Subscribe Today!

Marketing continued to bring learners industry-related content by debuting a real estate-oriented video showcasing a learner journey with BOMI from an unsatisfied employee to an accomplished property manager.

We also collaborated with like-minded organizations to unveil Careers Building Communities. A platform that highlights the diverse career paths within commercial real estate in an effort to fill the talent pipeline.

Lastly, we collaborated with America’s Commercial Real Estate Show to feature Board Executive Committee member David Pogue on the podcast, “Utilizing Sustainability and Wellness to Improve Profitability.” Listen to their discussion on the financial impact of high-performance buildings and how to add value with sustainability.
