Taking the High Road: A Guide to Effective and Legal Employment Practices for Nonprofits
This book is only available as an eBook (PDF).
"Employees are our most valuable asset," is an organizational cliche. An equally true statement is that employees can be a nonprofit's liability, both by their specific actions and by not sharing the vision of the organization's leadership. Managing an organization well requires being mindful of both sides of this conundrum: assets and liabilities. The nonprofit sector can claim no exception to this advice. In fact, when the higher moral purpose that typically distinguishes the nonprofit sector is taken into account, it's even more important for managers of nonprofit organizations to be attentive to taking the high road.
This resource offers the help you need to effectively manage employment risk. Taking the High Road: A Guide to Effective and Legal Employment Practices for Nonprofits contains valuable information on developing sound, defensible employment practices that are practical as well as fair and compassionate.
