Event Description


Being responsible for your nonprofit’s human resources practices can be a daunting task. In the course of a single week you might hire a new employee, ensure your nonprofit is compliant with key legislation, and carry out a termination. Do you have the tools and knowledge to understand why HR activities like policies and employee training apply to your organization too? Doing it wrong can be damaging to your organization, whether it be from losing a valuable employee or costly compliance violation fines.

So, what is human resources all about, and how can you ensure it’s being done properly? This workshop will look at the basics of human resource management and provide you with foundational knowledge in key areas to explore the ways HR can help your nonprofit reach its potential.
