Nonprofit HR and GuideStar Need Your Insight on Nonprofit Employment Practices

Nonprofit HR and GuideStar Need Your Insight on Nonprofit Employment PracticesAt Nonprofit HR, we help nonprofit organizations strengthen their most important asset -- their employees -- through human resources consulting, talent acquisition, executive search, and education.

For the last 10 years, Nonprofit HR has conducted the industry-leading Nonprofit Employment Practices Survey, which studies employment trends, growth and changes in nonprofit employment. The survey includes information on participants’ staff size and projected growth, recruitment strategies and budgeting, staffing challenges and talent resource management, and is frequently cited in media outlets like The Huffington Post and The New York Times.

This year, for the first time ever, Nonprofit HR has teamed up with GuideStar to produce the annual Nonprofit Employment Trends survey and help it reach more nonprofits than ever before. We need your participation to make this year’s survey the most comprehensive one yet.

We’d like to invite you to participate and share insights about your organization’s current employment, recruitment, retention, and budgeting practices. The survey findings will provide an informative tool for benchmarking your own organization's HR practices and help fellow nonprofit professionals see how their organizations stack up.

The results of this year’s survey will be revealed in tandem with GuideStar at the Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit on Monday, April 18th in Washington DC. The Summit is the only nonprofit-focused talent and culture conference in the world, providing attendees with the necessary tools and actionable ideas to cultivate, engage and sustain the talent that will empower their organizations to achieve their missions.

Some of the highlights of this year’s event include:

  • Four keynote sessions presented by leaders of organizations like American Express Foundation and Urban Prep Academies
  • Four educational tracks to choose from to customize your learning experience: Culture & Retention, Executive/CEO, Talent Acquisition, and Talent Development
  • Valuable networking opportunities with nonprofit leaders from across the country
  • A breakfast keynote session where leaders from Nonprofit HR and GuideStar will discuss emerging trends in nonprofit employment

All survey participants receive $50 off registration to the event. Early bird registration runs through December 4th, with prices increasing by $200 thereafter. Take the survey now to make your point of view heard and claim your discount.
