Nonprofit leaders wear a lot of hats, including serving as Directors of Human Resources. In this highly competitive talent climate, how can your organization attract, retain, and develop top talent without breaking the bank? In this two-day boot camp, we will discuss some of the challenges facing nonprofits in the current talent landscape and steps that your organization can take to ensure you hire great people, keep them longer, and continue to grow them into future leaders of your organization while ensuring that your organization remains legally compliant.

Day One of the workshop will cover:

– The ED’s role in HR and talent development.

– Knowledge of the current talent climate in the nonprofit sector.

– Key talent priorities to focus on for various sized organizations.

– Strategies and best practices for more effective hiring, talent retention, and leadership development.

Day Two of the workshop will cover:

  • the basic function of HR within an organization.
  • basic HR processes, policies, and procedures.
  • federal and state employment laws that govern your organization to ensure compliance.

This event is a good fit for: Non-HR staff such as operations managers and executive directors that perform HR functions at their organization and HR staff who are just starting out in the nonprofit sector.
