Dec 6 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Unpredictable external forces (changing governmental regulations, shifting funding streams and tight talent markets) can cause uncertainty for organizational leaders and staff. External forces are not always within your control. How do you focus on what you can control, including organizational culture and employee engagement and retention, to ensure mission sustainability? In this workshop, Nonprofit HR’s Director of Project Consulting Lisa Wright Ponce will guide you through diagnosing your organization’s culture and understanding how to impact engagement directly, resulting in higher employee retention and renewed commitment and passion.
