Strategic Hiring and OnBoarding

A nonprofit can't accomplish its mission without a highly effective team of employees. There is more to hiring than just advertising a job opening. It pays to be intentional when developing the job description, attracting the right candidates, and interviewing with processes specific to the job. The new hire process doesn’t end with the offer, and many nonprofits underestimate the benefits of a solid onboarding process.

A nonprofit can't accomplish its mission without a highly effective team of employees. There is more to hiring than just advertising a job opening. It pays to be intentional when developing the job description, attracting the right candidates, and interviewing with processes specific to the job. The new hire process doesn’t end with the offer, and many nonprofits underestimate the benefits of a solid onboarding process. Having an effective onboarding process increases retention rates and speeds up the time that new employees can begin adding value to your organization.

This workshop is for director-level or executive-level staff, anyone interested in pursuing a supervisory leadership position, or any professional seeking to hone his or her HR skills.

Learning Objectives Include:

  • Develop desired criteria for preferred candidate
  • Craft meaningful and efficient job ads/postings based on the required talents, skills and experience
  • Create a specific recruitment strategy
  • Build an effective interview team to improve the quality of the interview
  • Develop the ability to empirically evaluate job candidates
  • Design a powerful new employee onboarding process to ensure your new hires get up to speed quickly
