Nonprofit Recruiting Challenges
Recruiterie’s approach towards nonprofit search is made different by addressing the unique recruiting challenges for these specialized organizations.
The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic caused many nonprofit organizations to delay hiring for leadership positions for 12 months or more. Once society and operations became a bit more functional, nonprofits soon realized they needed strong leadership to support their mission and drive their organizations more than ever. This has created additional competition, in what is already, a very competitive employment marketplace.
Employers are also discovering the frustration with how the hiring temperature has changed. Candidates have become much more demanding in terms of salary expectations, benefits, and most importantly, working from home. Employers are finding they are having to make adjustments in their total compensation package to attract the right types of individuals in order to secure talented nonprofit professionals.
Additional common challenges to talent acquisition include:
- A limited budget – Compared to for-profit organizations, a nonprofit tends to have a smaller budget, limiting the organization’s internal recruiting efforts.
- Finding the perfect candidate – A nonprofit needs to hire someone passionate about the organization’s mission. Overall, a top priority of a nonprofit’s talent search is finding skilled candidates who align with the organization’s culture.
- No formal staffing procedure – While 51% of nonprofits expect an increase in their staff, most organizations lack a formal structure for recruiting new talent.
- High staff turnover – The average tenure for nonprofit employees is only 3.6 years.
- Lack of succession planning – Because of high staff turnover and the continuous hiring process, nonprofits often lack succession planning for important roles within their organization.
- Wide skills gap – The skills gap is prevalent in the nonprofit sector because the industry is constantly changing and nonprofits often lack the resources to provide proper training for their employees.
- Diversity hiring – Nonprofits are struggling to find and retain a diverse workforce. To effectively address these challenges, nonprofits need to look for a staffing partner that specializes in recruiting within the sector.
Recruiterie is your partner to surmount all these challenges. We have a long history of supporting nonprofits with their staffing needs and have a team of specialists dedicated to the sector. We understand your unique position and can provide support tailored to your organizational requirements — from succession planning to entry-level recruiting and everything in between.
