Treat your employees like the valuable assets they are
Abstract: When asked to list their organization’s assets, nonprofit leaders are likely to leave personnel off the list. But without a knowledgeable and committed staff, there’s little chance of delivering program services or raising enough money to fund them. This article discusses how to find and keep good staff. This starts with smart hiring, but staffers also need to buy in to the nonprofit’s mission and support its programs. A sidebar lists nonmonetary ways to let staffers know they’re valued.
