Nonprofit organizations have suffered greatly because of the pandemic. Two pandemic related developments in particular—the greater reliance on a remote workforce and a significant reduction in the required workspace—will dramatically change how nonprofits operate in the future.    

Obviously, moving forward you’ll need to determine how much physical space you’ll require given that some of your employees and volunteers will be onsite while others will work remotely.  Your decisions will raise new questions concerning needed new technologies and information sharing techniques, employee and volunteer management issues, related regulatory compliance issues, new recruiting strategies, improving and changing leadership and management styles, new communications strategies for staff, volunteers, donors, board members and your community, changing insurance needs, etc. Every department in your organization will be impacted by your decisions to these operations related questions.   

Your organization’s budgeting procedures will also be affected. The annual budget and planning cycle will always be important, but because of the long-term costs and time required to fully implement many of the necessary operations changes, a 3–5-year budgeting horizon should become an important companion to your annual budget.

Are your managers ready for the challenges which await them? Perhaps the best way to make sure they are, is by providing them with the operations related training they’ll need. But who has time for training, particularly in an environment where time is at a premium?
