About This Resource

This was our Spring 2024 CE Focus Session

Session Description

As leaders of Employment Social Enterprises (ESEs), many of you are often thinking about the balance between the business of your enterprise and the social impact that you generate. Do you sometimes wish you could understand how financially healthy each of these parts of your organization are? Double Bottom Line (DBL) financial analysis is a great skill to understand the financial sustainability of your business and employee programs within your ESE.

We invite you to dive into what a DBL analysis is, what information it surfaces, and how your ESE can utilize this information to strengthen both sides of your enterprise. Throughout this workshop, we will feature real world examples from your ESE peers to help illustrate just how impactful this tool can be!
