Human Resources: Preventing Expensive Mistakes and
Restructuring Your System

Don’t overlook these common Human Resources issues that can lead to an expensive mistake.

Human Resources (HR) has a bad reputation, and I get it. In the wrong hands, HR can become an illogical, tangled mess of bureaucracy and policies, resulting in the professional equivalent of getting called into the principal’s office. Basic HR functions can appear on the surface as unimportant: employee handbooks can go years (or decades) without being updated; hiring happens through networking or casual interviews; or performance reviews are not prioritized.

If you have wondered about the importance of updated policies, what your performance review and compensation philosophy is, or if you struggle to find your latest handbook, these are warning signs that you need to take action. These mistakes are all avoidable and can cost your association money, time, stress, and reputation.

Navigating a New Landscape for Nonprofits since the Great Resignation

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about unprecedented challenges, reshaping the world of work in profound ways. As the global economy recovers, a new phenomenon has emerged known as the “Great Resignation.” Individuals are reconsidering their priorities and reevaluating their careers, resulting in a surge of resignations across various industries. Nonprofits are finding this has become their greatest challenge.
