Adapting to the Environment: How One Organization Maximized Opportunity
Trends change. Keeping an eye on changes in the business environment can help community-based organizations (CBOs) identify ways to expand their businesses, modify their practices or meet new and enhanced outcomes for the people they serve.
In 2017, Community Options Enterprises, a subsidiary of Community Options, a national non-profit organization, conducted an environmental scan that included a review of labor statistics and other corporate and business trends. They found that of the days they worked, 38% of people in management, business, financial and other professional occupations did some or all their work from home. The trend for more businesses and industries to utilize remote workers inspired Community Options Enterprises to develop a business model that meets the needs of changing corporate practices while fulfilling their organizational mission to develop and operate entrepreneurial businesses that successfully integrate people with disabilities into the workforce.
Join us on Friday, September 28, 2018 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET as Dina Casalaspro, Managing Director of Community Options Enterprises, Inc. describes the research that lead their organization to develop a creative and self-sustaining business model with a hybrid payer structure, where customer purchased services and office rentals support the cost of operations. Please note that this month’s webinar is taking place on a Friday, rather than our traditionally scheduled Wednesday webinars.
