Episode 17: Smart HR in Small Nonprofits

In this episode, Nancy and Sarah welcome Human Resources expert Skye Mercer to talk about what nonprofit people– particularly “accidental HR managers” — should be thinking about as we start 2021. Skye tells us why it is worth our time to get HR right, even if we are an all volunteer organization with no staff. We talk about how to boost morale when so many people are working from home. Skye shares her wish for all nonprofits when it comes to HR.

Questions to reflect on before you listen:

How does the Human Resource function happen now in your nonprofit?

Discussion questions:

  1. What resonated with you about this conversation? What would you like to take back to your organization?
  2. So many people are working remotely, either fully or partially. How are you maintaining a strong morale for your team? What might you do differently to strengthen morale?
  3. Think about an HR value that you hold for your organization. Where does it show up in your budget?

Words of the Week:  Values
What does this word mean to you and your organization? How do you connect “values” to what you “value”?
