It’s a fact of nonprofit life that money is almost always limited, so community organizations need to make the wisest possible use of their resources. Nowhere is that more important than with human resources, which can be one of the highest costs of doing business.
In this interactive workshop we'll look at how to improve interview skills, so that you can find and hire the best – those candidates that have the skills needed, the passion for your mission, and the fit for your particular culture. You'll spend time developing targeted interview questions to get you the information you need, and you’ll also talk about how to interpret the answers you get to those questions in order to make a good hiring decision. And finally, we'll spend just a bit of time ensuring that you don’t ask questions that might lead to a charge of discrimination.
