Hiring your first employee is a big step in your organization’s life cycle. Perhaps your Board is looking for relief from long volunteer hours before they burn out. Perhaps your stakeholders are having trouble connecting with your organization because as committed as your volunteers are, they have jobs and lives outside of their commitment to your mission. When is the time to hire paid staff? What is the role you need that staff person to play? How will the role of the Board change? How do you ensure hiring a staff member supports the success you’ve always had as a grassroots organization? This session will help you identify processes to answer these questions and succeed in hiring and supporting your organization’s first employee.
