Economic and lifestyle changes are driving many consultants and nonprofits to rethink the design of their workplace arrangement. Work-at-home professionals and consultants in small shops are finding co-working an attractive style of work that addresses the problem of isolation and loss of human interaction by providing a shared working environment. Nonprofits who are looking to decrease their overhead costs and improve efficiency are finding shared space offers a solution as well as opportunities to collaborate with organizations with complementary mission objectives. Still others find long-term lease and facility purchase best meet their needs. Join us for presentations about the advantages and challenges of these options and possible strategies you can use to address them.
