Workplace Learning

The best nonprofits are constantly learning.

The most impactful nonprofits actively drive toward being learning organizations. Our work with hundreds of nonprofit organizations over the years has afforded us with a rich repository of best practices and compliance strategies that we believe can help you as you manage and lead your organization’s people function or augment your nonprofit’s existing training program. Whether you want to explore new ways to hone your leadership style or learn critical skills for giving and receiving feedback, we have a learning opportunity for you.

Whether in-house or online, Nonprofit HR offers a diverse range of on-demand or customized training sessions for your entire organization. From harassment prevention to leadership development, we’ve delivered it all.
