We know that the turnover in nonprofits is high – especially among the fundraising/development departments. We also know that the number one reason people leave a job is because of their direct supervisor. Remember, first impressions aren’t just for first dates – your relationship with the people you supervise starts immediately when they are hired. How you onboard, supervise, and evaluate your employees can make all the difference in the amount of turnover you experience.

After taking all that time to carefully interview and select a new employee, it’s equally as important to be thoughtful in getting them oriented to your organization, the agency mission and goals, and your department. Instead of going with the “sink or swim,” “hit the ground running,” or “they’ll figure it out” approach, a few small steps can make all the difference in your new hire feeling supported as they step into their new position. Please join Rachelle Nesta-Goff as she sets the stage for better supervisory relationships within your nonprofit and provides tools to get new staff up to speed, making it easy to transition into a consistent supervision schedule with them. All this work will make evaluations easier for you and predictable for them – a win-win!

  • How to set up a thorough onboarding schedule
  • Ideas for what documents to include in your orientation
  • Steps you can take to give your new employee some small wins right away
