HPM Talks Webinar: Planning for Post COVID-19 Facilities in Business, Education & Communities

July 22, 2020

July 30 | 11 a.m. CDT

With so much in our world changing at a rapid pace, there is no better time than now to incorporate innovative ideas and effective planning into your standard operating procedure and facilities planning. 

Though it may seem daunting to plan for facilities while so much is changing, the truth is that good planning is vital whether your business is in a period of growth or decline.

If you’re not sure where to start, join Tracy Richter, Vice President of Planning Services, and Greg Ellis, Vice President of Program Development, later this month for our next HPM Talks webinar, Planning for Post COVID-19 Facilities in Business, Education & Communities.

Tracy and Greg will discuss the major components needed to comprehensively analyze your facility needs, and explore examples of successful planning in the growth, decline, and maintenance stages.
