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

We are seeking to roll out a new retirement benefit option for our team of 50 staff by May 2022, idealing something that will integrate as smoothly as possible with our current (and future) payroll software. We are seeking support with the creation of an RFP, as well as the review of proposals that we receive from vendors. This will be our first time selecting a retirement plan and so we are seeking a volunteer with expertise in this benefit area. Thank you!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a budget and basic understand of what we want to offer, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have potential vendors interested in working with us, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $1,955 , allowing us to instead provide security deposit support to families moving from our family shelter into an apartment.

Our organization is growing rapidly and retaining our valuable staff requires us to improve our benefits package. Our HR team is small but mighty, and we don't feel sufficiently experienced, or have sufficient time to make the best decision(s) on our own.

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
