2018 Nonprofit Recruitment and Retention Best PracticesDate: Thursday, April 26, 2018, 10:00 am – 11:00 am PST
Are your nonprofit’s recruitment or retention efforts becoming a much more critical factor for maintaining organizational sustainability and executing mission-driven initiatives?
With the national unemployment rate steadily declining, and a substantial increase in expectations for competitive benefits and salaries, nonprofits are definitely feeling the squeeze—especially when competing against for-profit organizations for key staff members. How can we overcome these challenges when funding support is steady at best, and often decreasing?
Join Mary Hughes, Senior Consultant at the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, for a webinar that will help you develop a framework for effective recruitment and retention strategies in the current workforce environment.
You will learn how to:
- Attract stronger candidates and enhance their loyalty to your nonprofit
- Establish a path to compensation growth for valued front-line staff members
- Gain board support for increased compensation and investment in employee development
