Cette activité a été annulée. Les renseignements sont affichés à des fins d'archives seulement.

Engaging StaffVolunteerism does not happen in a vacuum. Volunteer success depends on effort and commitment from everyone in an organization. Senior leadership need to endorse volunteerism as a key success factor; paid staff need to embrace the opportunity to collaborate with unpaid staff; volunteers need to feel excited by the chance to contribute to your organizational mission. Planning for effective staff engagement will set the foundation for success.

Learning Objectives

After completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand volunteer motivation, and identify motivators which would be best for their organizational context
  • Identify what volunteers, specifically, contribute to their organization
  • Apply principles of job design, the 10 steps of screening, performance management, and recognition to recruiting and retaining the right volunteers for the organizational need
  • Understand the role of policy and boundaries in volunteer success

Who should attend?

  • Volunteer Coordinators
  • Senior managers
  • Fundraising personnel
