More Facilities, More Problems? Nonprofit Workplace Facility Strategies in Our New Era

Tuesday, May 17 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am • Organized By Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership
Online Event


The pandemic dust has settled or may be settling for nonprofits, and nonprofit leaders are focusing on workplace facility costs, perhaps more than ever before. Questions that are being asked include, are these investments continuing to help us carry out (and even extend) our mission, or are they a barrier now that the hybrid working model seems to be the new norm? Is this really a new norm or is this just a moment? Do we fully commit to our current operational model and therefore commit long-term to a workplace facility strategy? Are solutions to our problems unique or common? What do we stand to gain and lose?

Before we let chaos reign, let’s take an hour to share and discuss common and unique situations and strategies. We’ll also begin to identify the benefits and costs that can come with these strategies, thus gaining (more) perspective on solving our workplace needs.

This will be an interactive session. Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences and expertise in ways that benefit the group, project examples will be shared, and we’ll discuss recommendations to fortify your org with internal and external teams to oversee and guide the process of making and carrying out a real-world workplace facility strategy.

This session will be led by Jeana Van Sickle and Josh Best, both with JVS Consulting.
