Many nonprofit organizations are in need of additional employees to meet the increasing demands of their constituents as federal, state and local governments are continuing to cut social programs to reduce spending. However, this additional need for employees comes at a time when many organizations don’t have the funds to hire additional employees. What options do these organizations have?
- Ask current employees to do more.
- Engage your volunteers.
Most organizations are already very lean on staff. Asking your current employees to do even more will lead them to eventually burn out and leave. Additionally, asking current employees to perform tasks that may not align with their skill strengths could result in frustration and a lower quality of work.
