Introducing Greater Sum's 2018 Nonprofit Cohort!
When The Greater Sum's review team assessed applications last fall, they were looking for nonprofits with an innovative approach to a significant issue. The organizations selected for the 2018 cohort are doing exciting work in environment, education, and community building. Click here to learn about them!
Building Strong Foundations
The Greater Sum supports nonprofit innovators through a series of free webinars on topics that fuel your success. Please share the opportunity with any nonprofits in your network!
Our first webinar topic will be HR Fundamentals for Non-Profits. Many of our 2017 applicants indicated plans to expand their teams this year, and hiring new staff can trigger lots of rapid learning (and paperwork) for an early-stage nonprofit leader. HR compliance can be a significant source of risk for nonprofits as our organizations grow in size or enter new markets, so it's important to identify those potential risks and take steps to avoid them.
Guest speaker Megan Richardson SHRM-SCP is the VP of Consulting Services with Dynamic Corporate Solutions, Inc. Megan has spent more than ten years providing HR guidance to numerous organizations. She's a seasoned presenter, and brings great energy to this important topic. This HR Fundamentals webinar will walk you through the laws governing employment as well as best practices that will contribute to your team's success.
Note: if the time of the webinar isn't convenient, feel free to register and watch a recording at your convenience!
