A to Z of Human Resources: HR Best Practices

Thursday, October 1, 2020
9:00 am11:00 am
NDANO Partnership Webinar

Presenter: Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN)
Cost: $35 NDANO Members with code and $55 Nonmembers (Login to Members Only Portal for code)

Small and medium-sized nonprofits typically don’t have the resources to create a human resources department with an experienced HR professional. The job of HR may be done by the executive director, the chief financial officer, a manager or administrative staff – wherever there is a little capacity or a little interest. So how do you know you’re really doing the right things, complying with the laws, and adhering to best practices?

In this session, MCN will conduct an audit of your HR practices from employee entrance to exit to ensure you’re on track. Examples of what they’ll cover include practical approaches and solutions to:

  • Hiring practices
  • Orientation and onboarding
  • Performance management
  • HR administration and personnel files
  • Employee handbooks
  • Corrective action and termination
  • What to outsource and what to DIY
