Prajna is available to design, coordinate, facilitate, lead, or participate in staff or board retreats and to perform big picture organizational development and analysis for businesses and non-profits.
We work with each client to identify retreat objectives and to develop an agenda to meet those aims. Our work on organizational retreats builds on our knowledge and experience creating or re-evaluating mission statements, developing short- or long-term strategic plans, and strengthening staff dynamics through team building and conflict resolution. We team with our clients to construct organizational cultures that promote working together to achieve a common purpose.
We also partner with businesses to identify ways they might connect with and contribute to their surrounding or greater communities. Prajna matches each client company with an appropriate community-based organization or cause that reflects the company mission or its employees’ values. Through our extensive non-profit connections, we are able facilitate the process of setting up this relationship, involving a range of activities from direct financial support to paid release time for staff to volunteer. Corporate philanthropy retreats, such as this, provide opportunities both to launch new programs or to evaluate existing relationships.
More and more, businesses are implementing service programs in their companies designed to meet goals and objectives that were previously met in more traditional ways. Companies are seeing the benefits of service in terms of employee loyalty, moral, and team building. Through connecting businesses with appropriate organizations, we eliminate the challenge of finding service placements for employees that work logistically and fill a real community need.
