Hire and Keep the Right Staff
It has always been difficult to attract and retain high performing staff when your resources limit your ability to provide attractive salary and benefits packages. The cost of losing a valuable employee is high, both in terms of lost productivity and money spent on hiring and training that employee, as well as doing the same for a replacement.
It takes well-planned strategies and approaches to appeal to the talented people needed to serve your mission and this webinar will help you identify ways to work within your nonprofit budget by understanding what employees care about so that they’ll want to stay.
Surveys consistently show that money is not the primary motivator for employees and that job satisfaction is linked more to other conditions, including the opportunity to use skills and abilities, management/employee communication and supervisor relationships. Having a positive brand and reputation, being employee-focused with strong employee engagement, as well as flexible working arrangements and approaches to roles and tasks, embracing diversity, valuing professional development, and formally demonstrating a positive culture that breaks down barriers to effectiveness, can all have a huge positive impact on attracting and keeping the A-game players. When you’re competing for talent against for-profit employers paying higher salaries, it’s the total package that needs to resonate with prospective employees.
If you’re ready to get serious about hiring and keeping top performers, this webinar can help you understand what people want and how you can attract and keep them.
