Facility Solutions: A sound headquarters strategy

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Housing staff in high performance headquarters facilities is more critical today than ever. High performance is now defined in two ways: a work environment that motivates staff to perform at their highest level and truly live the credit union’s brand, and a real estate strategy that provides the lowest operating cost over the long term.The key to accomplishing these goals is to create a sound and creative real estate and occupancy strategy with these seven critical components:1. Consider the long term.Short-term branching strategies often favor leasing, which typically costs less than owning for the first seven years of a 10-year program. However, 20-year projections should be used for scenario development, as it provides a rational timeframe of occupancy use.Most financial institutions occupy the same headquarters for more than 10 years. Even when the credit union owns the building, short-term thinking can be dangerous. For example, a 10-year projection may show the need for a 50,000-square-foot building at a cost of $9 million. This looks realistic in terms of current assets. But what happens at the end of 10 years? Should the CU sell the building and relocate? Or, would it be better to have purchased sufficient land to accommodate future expansion (and sell it if it’s not needed), or construct a building to meet 20-year needs (and lease to others in the meantime). The financial significance will be illustrated later in this article. continue reading »last_img read more

After we got married, on a whim, we bought club loge seats to the Angels vs Mariners game and celebrated together in her wedding dress and my suit above third base. I wore my late father’s Pioneer League Championship ring the he won when he played in Idaho Falls for the Angels minor league system in 1970. The staff at Angels stadium was so kind when we arrived and found out that we were just married that they gave us a gift basket full of giveaways that we still have. The fellow fans that sat around us bought us drinks and one bought us a cheesecake yogurt to celebrate like a wedding cake. The Angels won that game 5-1 over the Mariners. It was such a wonderful experience. And we both truly believe that my father was there celebrating with us in spirit. Looking forward to another great season! Go Angels!!
