Attracting and Retaining Talent
Great leaders get things done through others. Your success as a CEO depends upon your ability to hire the right people. But securing great talent is only part of the task. Keeping them engaged, challenged, and happy is really what counts. In nonprofit organizations, where budgets are often extremely tight, an effective executive needs to find meaningful ways to both attract and retain the best people for the job, some of which are not always financial. This includes increasing opportunities for growth and development, helping to promote people from within, providing meaningful feedback and more.
In my consulting work I have helped executives incorporate best practices regarding workplace happiness along with essential HR practices that lead to more satisfied and productive employees. My efforts, coupled with the participation of an organization’s senior management, have enabled institutions to achieve the status of “a great place to work,” even when budgets were strained.
