With scarce statistical information available on nonprofit human resources practices and trends, the collection of staffing, recruitment and retention data is an important step in identifying issues, concerns and opportunities for nonprofit organizations, funders, researchers, capacity builders and others to systematically address the current and emerging human resources needs of the sector.
