Hiring and training talented staff takes a lot of time and resources for every organization, but when you work in advancement, with staff that spend much of their time with our constituents, we need to be even more careful about hiring well.
The great reshuffle we’re experiencing now, with record highs of job openings and workers quitting, makes keeping top talent even more challenging. And our competition is also hiring!
Couple this with clarity issues on what advancement and development is, the professional and confidential nature of our work, and the challenges in our current economic climate, finding fundraising team members has never seemed more challenging.
In this webinar, we will focus on the aspects you can control within your advancement staff and organization to hire, retain and continually inspire your team. Whether you’re looking for someone now, or you need to prepare for hiring new staff, this webinar will share ideas on how to keep your team from continually losing top talent which can be such a brain drain for your institution.
Topics we will cover include:
- Creating a culture that keeps talent
- Things to consider in the hiring process
- The importance of leadership in retaining staff
- Developing annual work plans
- Effective evaluations and consistent feedback
- Recognizing and cultivating future leaders
The fee for this webinar is $295 per institution, which allows your entire team the opportunity to participate in this professional development at the same time no matter where you are located. If you are a current client of Gonser Gerber Advancement Consulting, that fee is just $145. You will also receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar with your registration.
