Hiring and Developing Talent


Discounts available for Santa Clara County nonprofits. (Details Below)




The process of hiring new employees often takes a significant investment of time and energy. It can be tempting to cut corners… but in the long run, hiring the wrong employee is not only disruptive to your team, it also ends up being even more time consuming and expensive. On the other hand, hiring the right employee - and setting them up for success - can help propel your mission forward.  In this workshop, we will explore strategies to identify the talent you want on your team. Participants will also learn interview techniques to better assess candidates upfront, as well as what it take to help them excel in this new position, starting from day one.

Intended Audience: Nonprofit staff managers, Executive Directors


  • Use your mission and values to determine your hiring goals
  • Learn how to develop questions to identify the behaviors and competencies you want in your next employee
  • Create a plan for success with a proper orientation and expectation setting
