In our last post, we revealed why an Employee Value Proposition, or EVP, should be a vital component in shaping your organisation’s HR policies.
In case you missed it, an EVP is the unique characteristics and benefits your organisation provides to staff in exchange for their skills, time and expertise.
It’s fair to say that most people working in the NFP sector aren’t primarily motivated by money. So what do staff get out of working at your organisation? Enter the Employee Value Proposition, or EVP – recognised as an effective way to answer this question.
What does your NFP’s usual recruitment process look like? Is it a haphazard, unruly beast, or a well-oiled machine? If your organisation either doesn’t recruit regularly, or if your HR person or team doesn’t give you much help, then you probably need to take a good, hard look at the process you use for recruiting new staff – from start to finish. Here’s how to put together a winning recruitment process for your organisation.

Have you considered that almost every potential employee who considers applying for a job with your organisation will read through your website, and use it to decide whether to apply for the job or not? When EthicalJobs.com.au surveyed our community of ethical job-seekers in 2014, they told us that checking out a potential employer’s website was by far the most popular way to assess them.
In recruitment, the easiest thing to do is the same thing you’ve always done. But it’s always worth double-checking your selection process to consider what you could be doing better.
In this post, we look at extensive research which provides some excellent, and at times surprising, insights into what the most effective selection tools and recruitment processes are.
If you’ve hired the wrong person for a job, can you train and develop them to become the right person?
