Evaluate Your Most Important Resources- Part III

What is an organization’s most valuable resource?

The people make up the heart and soul of any organization.  Employees at non-profits are often underpaid and overworked. Take the time to evaluate the functions of each staff member and see how much responsibility each position carries. Is there some shifting that can be done to more evenly distribute job responsibilities? Are there some tasks that can be eliminated? Or do tasks need to be added? Can some projects be outsourced to free up time for staff to spend on programs or services?

Thank your staff.  In all cases, take the time to reward a job well-done and appreciate the staff you have. It’s the people who make an organization successful.

When you need assistance with business development, consider outsourcing to a marketing company that specializes in working with non-profits.
