The traditional practice of working at the office from 9-to-5 has been permanently upended as more employees now split their time between working in the office and working remotely. The rise of the hybrid workforce has left both employers and employees striving to define what work-life balance looks like in this new reality. 

Work-life integration is important for every employee at any time. When people are able to create work life integration, they tend to perform better and experience higher levels of engagement, employee satisfaction and well-being. In contrast, a lack of work/life integration increases their risk of burnout and underperformance. Studies show employees are working longer hours and experiencing higher levels of fatigue; however, employers are in a position to support their employees by ensuring they have access to the tools and resources they need.

Access this informative session and understand how to:

  • Watch for signs of burnout

  • And more!

Your organization’s people look to your leadership for guidance and direction. One area where you have an opportunity to communicate with transparency is decision making about topics that impact the employee experience, financials and strategic plan. A second area is how the external environment, such as the pandemic, war and ongoing calls for social justice, is impacting the need to revisit the organization’s mission and ability to effectively meet it. Because trust is a foundational element of an inclusive culture, it is essential for leaders to communicate the impacts of external events and how it impacts the internal DEIJ strategy in order to sustain employee and organizational commitment.

The world has significantly changed over the past two years, including a massive shift to flexible schedules and working remotely. Therefore, how we evaluate performance and support professional development must shift as well. When managers provide consistent feedback, research shows that employees are three times more likely to be engaged. Beyond using feedback for employee surveys, sharing challenges or documenting annual performance reviews, leaders can implement a continuous feedback process that uses that information to discover needs in real time and where to invest more. If put in a proper framework in any organization, continuous feedback will lead to optimized performance and more engaged employees, building a culture of high performance. Tune in now and learn how to support your leaders in becoming more effective when delivering and receiving feedback to support their people in an ever-evolving work environment.

  • Strengthen your leaders’ ability to give and receive feedback through effective training

An intentional strategic approach for recognizing and developing talent can help organizations engage and retain their best and brightest people versus losing them to outside growth opportunities. Over half of organizations surveyed in Nonprofit HR’s 2021 Talent Management Priorities Survey want to prioritize employee engagement, but only a quarter had a formal talent management plan in place. In this conversation, we’ll explore why this discrepancy occurs throughout mission-driven organizations and how to communicate the imperative of investing in talent to your leadership team.

The need to shift to working from home came without notice for many organizations. This unpredictable turn led many employers to pivot to a virtual workforce at the start of the pandemic, and most that shifted are still managing a virtual or hybrid workforce. From higher productivity to increased work-life integration, some organizations have reaped positive outcomes in spite of this unplanned shift. However, others are struggling with issues such as inadequate technology solutions, lower staff engagement and morale as well as the impacts of social isolation and distractions at home. In this panel discussion, leaders will be given solutions that have worked for other organizations that have championed this shift to a virtual environment.

Hear considerations as well as positives for organizations deciding whether or not to go 100% permanently virtual:

  • Develop effective plans and engagement for virtual operations long term while enhancing the virtual working experience
  • Create a virtual workforce that offers far-reaching and positive effects on operations, talent attraction and employee morale
  • Prepare your leaders to operate their organizations during a shift to a virtual and develop strategies to re-integrate remote workers when there may be a shift back to workspace

Welcoming a new C-suite executive into your organization can be both an exciting and daunting task. Set your new executive up for success by preparing strategies at every stage of the pre-boarding and onboarding process to ensure a successful integration and a positive early experience. A recent global study found that when grading onboarding experiences on a scale of 1 to 100, executives in the U.S. rate their experience as mediocre, with an average score of 59. While many organizations are working to improve the onboarding experience, the survey findings point to a gap in new executives’ expectations and subsequent experiences. Fostering trust among leaders, staff and board members through work-culture acclimatization, reiterating priorities early on and adapting to new virtual considerations will be key in helping the executive start off on the right foot. This discussion will highlight the essential considerations before day one, in the first 30 days, throughout the leader’s first quarter and beyond.

  • Best practices to ensure a high-touch approach during the orientation stage

The past few years required HR professionals to quickly adapt to an ever-changing landscape, but the unprecedented events of the last year prompted an even more rapid shift away from traditional HR practices. From compensation and benefits to HR technology, traditional approaches to total rewards have been expanded to include more flexible, equitable and efficient people-focused solutions.

The rise of remote work now requires that compensation practices are flexible enough to accommodate increasingly mobile workforces while remaining compliant to the unique restrictions mandated by different jurisdictions. Benefits practices are being shaped by new COVID-19 legislation, rules and guidelines and a wider effort to improve the employee experience through low-cost perks and equitable policies. From an equity standpoint, these changes are meant to accommodate differences in individuals and family structures. HR technology is propelling organizations to enhance the service-oriented nature of HR while increasing efficiencies and ensuring equitable practices. Taken together, these trends have resulted in total rewards practices that are people focused and service oriented. But, these changes are merely the tip of the iceberg!

The social enterprise ecosystem is a vibrant example of how impactful missions can be when the investment in people is prioritized.

Call it a Performance Management Revolution or the end to annual reviews, organizations are transforming their performance management programs to allow for increased opportunities for feedback. Feedback-driven models (often referred to as continuous feedback) encourage people managers and their teams to participate in ongoing conversations about both performance and growth opportunities. However, a continuous feedback model falls short without establishing and intentionally building a culture of trust.

Over half (63%) of 675 respondents in Nonprofit HR’s 2021 Nonprofit Diversity Practices Survey indicated that their organizations have made adjustments to prioritize/reprioritize diversity objectives, programs and/or initiatives. While compensation equity remains a focal point for employers, turning to employee health benefits as a tool to tackle health equity also came to the forefront.

Leadership & Culture in Nonprofits

Are your leaders truly ready to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce? Closely examining how your leaders manage your workplace culture can have a critical impact on your success. The 2019 Nonprofit Talent Retention Practices Survey revealed that 21% of respondents prematurely left organizations due to dissatisfaction/disengagement with current leadership.

Employee Engagement & Belonging Practices in Nonprofits

How high on the scale would your employees rank their sense of belonging in your organization? It is not enough to assume that your employees feel connected and like they belong at work. The third-highest driver for voluntary turnover in organizations, 26.2%, was dissatisfaction and disengagement with current organizational culture according to Nonprofit HR’s 2019 Retention Practices Survey. Belonging is linked to increased job performance and can strengthen employee engagement. Understanding the extent to which your diverse staff feels a part of the culture is critical to your DEI efforts.

Equity in Total Rewards Practices in Nonprofits 

When was your organization’s last compensation review, and was it reactionary or strategically developed to create a more equitable workforce? The 2019 Diversity Practices Survey revealed that only 16% of respondents track pay gaps through the lenses of equity and diversity. Additionally, only 9% said their organizations changed their total rewards practices to realize greater diversity. Today’s digitally-savvy, vocally-empowered employees have many tools at their disposal to publicly share their career experiences and to benchmark how they are compensated and rewarded.

The 2020 Nonprofit Talent Management Priorities Survey revealed that 45% of respondents are prioritizing “attracting and hiring diverse talent” this year, across all demographics including race. But what will social-impact organizations need to look like to the “woke” jobseeker?
