HR Tools for Fundraising Professionals: Hiring and Managing for Success

Making a transition to manager is a significant step for any fundraising professional. Indeed, growing into a leadership role takes a baseline set of skills that starts with having the right talent on your team. Yet managers are not always equipped with the required HR-related training. This gap becomes all the more urgent when it comes to hiring and evaluating employees, particularly in today’s environment where employee turnover continues to be a challenge.

Join us for a breakfast workshop that will provide you with the tools and tips you need to thrive when hiring and evaluating employees. Whether you are currently managing a team or looking to secure a management role, this workshop will cultivate HR skills essential to identifying and stewarding the next generation of leaders in your organization.

  • Hiring for success: What skills, qualities and values should you look for in a new employee? What differentiates high performers from high potentials?
  • Fine-tuning your interviewing skills, including the most effective questions to ask, elements to look for in a potential hire, and identifying the right “fit” for your organization’s culture
  • Managing your new hire’s performance: providing feedback in a constructive way and delivering effective performance evaluations
