Management and Human Resources
The strength of any nonprofit relies primarily on the strength of its people. These are the folks who carry out your mission day in and day out. In most cases, they need to be motivated by a lot more than money (because let’s face it, you probably don’t have a lot). But how do you find people who are as passionate about your work as you are?
The question is actually more complicated than it might seem. First, you need to get very specific about what you mean by “people.” Federal and state laws have a lot to say about whether an employee is exempt from overtime laws or not, and what makes a consultant a consultant. On top of that, there’s a lot to know about recruiting, managing and being liable for volunteers. This is all very serious stuff.
Here, we provide an overview of how to define, recruit, manage and compensate various types of personnel. We’ll take a look at some of the tough disciplinary questions, along with strategies for finding candidates who are the best match for your organization. This will help to jumpstart your process; but remember that laws vary drastically from one state to another, so you’ll need to be fully up to speed on what’s required where you’re operating.
