Two-minute Tip to Success — Elevate your Career: Win an Award, Achieve Certification

Further your professional development by winning a Field of the Year award or achieving the CSFM designation or the Environmental Facility Certification — or all three!
Attaining recognition is a very visible way you show your value to your employer. And, that value can enhance your employer’s brand internally and externally. It can provide a platform for you to improve your compensation and gain support from senior level colleagues. Winning an award or achieving certification provides validation of how you measure up in the marketplace.
Even applying for an award or the certification program helps you in worthwhile ways: it allows you to reflect on your skills and career progress, creates an opportunity for you to receive useful feedback about your work, and alerts you about any gaps in expertise. It also provides you with a skill you can continue to build on: how to identify and promote your value.
