“The secret of my success is that we have gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people in the world.” – Steve Jobs
Recruit the right people
Your organization’s mission is important, so it deserves the very best chance at success. Having the right people in the right roles is the only way to get there. While training and developing talent is absolutely vital, no amount of training will help if your employees’ vision and ideals don’t align with your institution’s. This is why recruitment and selection is at the heart of any nonprofit’s hiring process. If starting off on the right foot is your goal, George & Associates can help you conduct an assessment of your staffing needs, create position profiles, and secure the very best employees for your organization.
Strategic talent acquisition
In order to keep your institution running smoothly, George & Associates offers consulting services based on assessing and predicting your staffing needs, not only in the immediate present, but into the future as well. With a strategic talent acquisition plan, discovering vulnerabilities in your faculty and staff matrix becomes a manageable part of regular operations, allowing you to locate and fix problems even before they present themselves. Our consultants can identify troublesome retention rates at specific positions, and even calculate when to begin hiring for a position before you have a vacancy. It’s no secret that having all the best tools at your disposal will provide you with greater control over the staffing and retention process. George & Associates has those tools.
Maintaining your workforce
According to the 2017 Nonprofit Employment Practices Survey, 81% of nonprofit organizations lack an employee retention plan. Since the majority also operate without a talent acquisition strategy, and may not be recruiting the right people in the first place, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they aren’t keeping the employees they do have. Nonprofits that neglect long-term planning, performance metrics, and analytics will have a much harder time maintaining a fully staffed workforce. Don’t lose your best people to an institution with a better eye for what employees want. Providing a competitive benefits package, value-based mission objectives, and an organizational culture that employees want to be involved in are key elements of retention that George & Associates can help define and improve.
