Upcoming events

Talent Management Roundtable – Retention Matters @ Nonprofit HR
Jun 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Nonprofit leaders know that hiring the right talent for their mission is just the beginning of the employee engagement and retention journey. But, how are they putting this knowledge into action? More than three-fourths (81%) of nonprofits do not have a formal retention strategy and most do not take advantage of one of the most effective tool available to them – the stay interview. Regardless of your mission type or the size of your HR department, there are several proven retention strategies available to you. Join Nonprofit HR for more insights on the current retention practices of nonprofits in North America and get tips on how to start putting effective retention practices into action.

Featured Insight: Habits of Highly Effective Nonprofit Leaders

What sets the effective nonprofit leaders apart from the rest? We have the answers.

We connected with high-performing nonprofit leaders from organizations like the National 4-H Council and the YWCA and asked them what makes them tick. Each leader had unique insights into key habits that help them lead effectively, which we synergized into four key themes.

The most effective leaders:

  1. Place a high value on education
  2. Empower others
  3. Embrace Change
  4. Leverage their networks

These are habits you can cultivate in yourself and in your most promising nonprofit employees.
