Nonprofit Leaders to Explore Latest Workforce Trends
“Evolving Nonprofit HR Trends: Insights for Navigating a Changing New World” will be presented virtually on October 5, 12-1:30pm
Princeton, N.J., September 21, 2021-The pandemic has brought new challenges for nonprofit employers just like their corporate counterparts. Employees who have tasted the benefits of working from home may be expecting to extend that opportunity. Staff who are fearful to return to work and in-person interactions, given the continuing COVID threat, may be unwilling to return to work.
For nonprofit managers, the already difficult challenges of hiring staff seem to be multiplying as employees push for increased wages and new flexibility. At the same time, would be and current employees are exerting a new level of pressure on nonprofits to authentically address diversity, equity and inclusion.
Nonprofit board and staff leaders have the chance to learn more about managing this new age of work and life rather than work vs. life at an upcoming program, “Evolving Nonprofit HR Trends: Insights for Navigating a Changing New World.” Consultants Alexandria Taylor and Tamika S. Hood of NonProfit HR bring their expertise and perspective working with a range of nonprofits across the nation. They will share where they see trends heading and offer insights as to how to effectively address the new employee mindset.
“To be prepared for the next phase of the pandemic including recovery, nonprofit leaders need to be strategic and understand the full marketplace where they are competing for employees,” commented Allison Howe, executive director of NonProfitConnect.
