Easily Engaging Staff Who Seem “Unengageable” as a HR of ONE

2020 Annual Conference & Exposition
Explore strategies and best practices for recruitment, retention, and employee engagement as a small organization with a limited budget.

With so many small businesses and smaller nonprofit teams being managed by an HR of One who is, no doubt, pulled in multiple directions, how do you put energy and time into employee engagement? How do you engage staff who seem impossible to keep connected? This session focuses on smaller organizations with smaller annual budgets of less than $10 million dollars who primarily staff those in social services or industries where some credentialing or a degree may be required, but the pay doesn’t always support their financial needs. Forcing many staff to work multiple jobs or simply remain overworked and underpaid. We also will focus on how to engage your employees before they start working, keeping them engaged once they’ve started, and retaining your top talent when burnout seems inevitable, all on a shoestring budget.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to recruit the right staff for your smaller, limited budget organization.
  • Learn how to start the employee engagement process before candidates start working.
  • How to motivate employees with additional skills and resources that are under-utilized.
  • Train your middle management to appreciate the whole employee instead of draining motivation to simply get the work done.
