Your organization may already have a specific vacancy you’re looking to fill. Or, you might recruit a consultant to help identify staffing inefficiencies and learn how you can create roles for needed talent.
Regardless of where you start out, not all nonprofits have the same staffing needs, and there are many ways that your consultant might approach your organization’s unique situation.
As you begin working with your consultant, they’ll sit down with your board, high-level staff members, general staff members and other important individuals with a stake in your nonprofit’s success.
By conducting a series of interviews, your consultant can gain insight into how well your team is meshing internally. Using the information they collect, your consultant can help paint a clearer picture of the shortcomings and strengths of your current staffing strategy.
During their assessment, your consultant will:
- Define key roles at your organization.
- Determine unaddressed needs of your current personnel.
- Identify turnover risk of occupied positions.
- And more!
Over the course of this preliminary phase, your consultant will collect the key facts of where your team stands in terms of staffing.
As they plan how to address your nonprofit’s staffing needs, they’ll leverage this information into smarter strategy so your organization can find the personnel you really need.
