Description

Product Description

The nonprofit workplace has a culture of its own, shaped largely by the organization''s mission and the staff attracted to the mission, which can include large numbers of volunteers. And with many of today''s nonprofits operating on a slim budget, chances are you''re fulfilling more than one role in the organization and can use some focused guidance!

Geared to this unique culture, The Nonprofit''s Guide to Human Resources provides legal and "good practice" information for anyone in charge of HR at small to medium sized organizations. Whatever your title and experience level, you''ll learn how to identify, face and resolve daily legal issues related to:

  • hiring, including screening, testing, background checks and interviewing
  • salaries and benefits, including FMLA and comp time
  • firings, layoffs and time reductions
  • determining suitable volunteer positions and recruiting and training for them
  • employee communications and other administrative tasks
  • managing a multi-racial, multicultural and multi-generational workforce
  • handling an organization in crisis

    The Nonprofit''s Guide to Human Resources offers the sound legal information found in Nolo''s other books for employers while addressing specific nonprofit issues you''re likely to encounter, such as the board of directors'' role in HR, and managing volunteers.

    Throughout the book you''ll find helpful tips and lessons learned (the hard way!) from expert advisers in various areas of HR management, from hiring to unions.

    Makes human resources easier to understand. However, I think that there could be more information included such as policies required by the State of California. Overall practical book.

    Most nonprofits pay too little attention to human resources management policies and processes. This book represents valuable HRM guidance from one of the field''s leaders. Useful for both the general manager and the human resources professional.
