Flexible Human Resources Support

Project Details

What We Need
  • Ongoing HR support for 10-15 hours over the course of 4 weeks
  • Support may include: hiring, compensation & benefits, HR policy & procedure, performance management, and/or workplace culture
  • Note: We devised this project to connect nonprofits and volunteers for more flexible, more immediate impact. We strongly suggest you start with 4 weeks and decide from there if you'd like to continue working. For this project, we also recommend working with a volunteer who is knowledgeable about the Organization's state policies
Additional Details

- KAN-WIN a small nonprofit organization that doesn't have a dedicated Human Resources department/person. As a result, there isn't a robust structure to monitor employee morale & engagement, workplace safety, and potential legal liabilities. There is great teamwork and communication among coworkers, but we are hoping to work with an HR consultant who can help us set up a strong foundation for sound HR practices moving forward.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an employee handbook and some HR policies and guidelines, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a full-time staff who has been acting as the go-to HR person, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $1,955 , allowing us to preserve our unrestricted/flexible funding for truly emergency needs (food, childcare, transportation, housing, etc. for clients)

Our small team of 14 staff (mix of full-time and part-time) are dedicated to providing services to victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Due to our limited resources and funding, we are not able to dedicate a significant portion of our budget to overhead administrative costs like HR. However, burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma, among others, are extremely common among professionals in this field and we want to take care of our employees.

Project Plan

Prep: Information Sharing & Goal Setting
  • Volunteer Manager provides an outline of current state of Human Resource knowledge at the organization
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of ongoing HR needs they have over the next 2-4 weeks
  • Volunteer and Volunteer Manager align on the scope of ongoing support that the Volunteer will provide to address this need
Step 1: Ongoing Support
  • Volunteer delivers ongoing support according to determined outline
  • Weekly check-ins to ensure support is being offered as agreed upon by both parties
Step 2: Training & Offboarding
  • Volunteer provides any relevant training to the Volunteer Manager to help them continue work or answer their own questions, where appropriate, after 4 weeks
