Storm Warnings: Avoiding Office Closure 

Register Now

This course is approved for 1.5 Professional Development Hours towards the Candidate for CO-OP® and CO-OP® Credentials.

About the Webinar

Join this conversation on what an Ombuds Program can do to minimize the risk of an Ombuds Program being terminated. We’ll explore warning signals indicating the Ombuds Program might be at risk, how to “sell” and influence decision-makers on the continuing value of an Ombuds Program and how you can ultimately be the most prepared to navigate through the unexpected storms that your Ombuds Program might encounter.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to strategically place your program so that it is viewed as an important value-added to your organization
  • Be proactive in advocating and preventing office closure
  • Be mindful of "warning flags"
  • Be prepared for the worst-case scenario
