Today, businesses of all types are remaking themselves to spur innovation, productivity, staff and volunteer attraction, and retention. Nonprofits are not exempt. Many nonprofits are in physical spaces that are not ideal due to budget constraints or the need to be in a specific location. In this panel discussion featuring Bill Connor, Sara Anderson, and Patrick Kelley of Avison Young, participants will be introduced to the concept of Workplace Strategy and will learn the process of evaluating their current space – taking into consideration functions, needs, current deficiencies and efficiencies, work-flow, organizational culture, and more. Panelists will help define how participants can customize the character of a space to attract and retain staff and volunteers, reflect your organization’s brand/mission, increase productivity and satisfaction, all while respecting a defined budget. Nonprofits can benefit from a space that works for them. Join us to learn how and why!
