This section includes both Human Resources & Volunteer Management.
The ability of an organization to make effective use of the energy, time, and talents of its employees and volunteers is essential to accomplishing the organization’s mission.
Nonprofit organizations should place a high priority on exercising fair and equitable practices that attract and retain qualified volunteers and employees. Like for-profits, nonprofits have an obligation to adhere to all applicable employment laws and to provide a safe and productive work environment.
Each nonprofit organization should establish specific policies and practices that promote cooperation and open communication among employees, volunteers and other constituents so that they can effectively work together to advance the organization’s mission.
