Event Details

Are you considering...

Reconfiguring your space? 

Moving to a new building or assessing the use of multiple locations?

Building a new facility or renovating an existing one?

Wondering how to feel better and be more productive in your space, even if you rent?

Without a focus on or metrics to understand how built environments affect worker and organizational experience, health, and productivity, many organizations are unaware of how to create an effective facilities strategy. Nonprofits operate on tight budgets with limited dollars for “overhead” expenses, often foregoing improvements to work environments and facilities, and as a result become particularly vulnerable to inefficiencies. This tendency to put physical infrastructure last creates a loss of potential nonprofit wealth that could otherwise support mission-critical needs.

In order to achieve our missions, nonprofit must take into consideration the triple bottom line of financial, social, and environmental impacts: ongoing operational and maintenance costs and efficiency; employee engagement, productivity, and health; and the visitor, client, and volunteer experience.

Join us at this peer discussion session to hear from organizations that manage healthier, higher-performing workspaces that help them realize organizational cost savings and productivity through a variety of approaches.  These leaders will give you the real talk on costs, considerations, and tips for creating physical spaces that are true organizational assets.

Topics: 

Space utilization and furniture layout
Efficient utility usage
Healthier indoor spaces
Building acquisition and divestment
Asking the right questions
Best practices and benchmarking
