Embrace the Fear and Risk Blossoming

When confronted with leaving behind her home, car, possessions, and friends and to travel in a motor coach for 136 days, Deborah Bateman was apprehensive and afraid. She couldn’t imagine how she could thrive without all the things that she acquired and had molded her into the person she had become (or so she thought). By leaving behind her material possession, and stepping out into the unknown, she flourished and gained a multitude of “Lessons Learned.”

Only 38% of the next generation are working in nonprofit and membeNonprofits in the War for Talentrship organizations. In the next ten years, expect 36% of veteran nonprofit employees to retire.

The workforce is evolving to include more generations than ever before. As the workforce shrinks and diversifies, all companies, including nonprofits and associations, will be hunting for top talent.

However there is good news!

Nonprofits and associations are uniquely positioned to meet the desires of the new workforce. Your organization is already poised for success, come and learn how to fulfill its potential.

  • Learn how your organization is ready to recruit and retain top talent through highlighting the benefits you didn’t realize you had.
  • Learn how your organization is able to grab the top talent it needs to march through the workforce crisis.
