staff meetingStaff Development & Evaluation

Recruiting, hiring, training and evaluating employees is one of the most rewarding opportunities that Directors have the opportunity to do. Do it well and your organization will grow and flourish. Do it improperly and you will waste valuable resources on conflict management, disciplinary measures, and even litigation.  The good news is that it is possible to practice good staff development and evaluation even without a human resources department. In this module we will explore the basic steps in drafting an organizational plan for overall staffing needs. From there we guide you through developing a job description. Then it is on to recruiting, interviewing and hiring the person that will be the best fit for your organization. Once the employee is in place adequate orientation and training are critical to get the employee off to the best start. Finally we will close the module on critical components of evaluation. This module is appropriate for board members, executive directors and any organizational members that play a role in the hiring, training and evaluation of employees.
