In addition, as employment laws and regulations are ever-changing, there is an ongoing need to review policies and procedures to ensure compliance. This topic will provide practical guidance on how key HR requirements can be developed, implemented, and maintained in alignment with your organizational culture and in support of the overall mission. This material will feature case examples and provide applicable recommendations related to HR activities and the employee life cycle, including workforce planning, benefits administration and compensation, performance management, professional development, policies/procedures, payroll, and compliance. This information will also provide recommendations for timely and cost-effective options to support nonprofits with limited HR resources.
