Impacts to F&A Bottom Line Given Remote Work
Wednesday, November 29 | 4p – 5p | Session #7
Session hosted by Chris Menzies and Vince Ludden, Attain Partners
Remote work is redefining the way we approach Facilities & Administrative costs in higher education. This advanced session delves into high-level analyses of the challenges, opportunities, and adaptations required. Engage in scenario analyses and spirited discussions. Decode the mystery and discover the future of remote work in F&A.
Remote work has in many ways changed the way higher education institutions operate, particularly in the research and administration realms, creating new challenges and opportunities related to F&A costs. Our presentation will be aimed at helping individuals at higher education institutions identify these challenges and opportunities.
The discussion will first uncover the areas at higher education institutions that have been impacted the most by remote work. From there, we will discuss ways to analyze the impact of remote work on F&A costs and the important, institution-specific factors to consider when preparing these analyses.
