Are you disengaged at your job? Why are so many employees fed up at their current organizations?
For nonprofits, who are often working with limited resources and smaller budgets, learning how to identify and combat factors that are driving their employees out the door is key to organizational survival.
Last year, the Unemployment Services Trust (UST) surveyed more than 1,300 nonprofit executives, supervisors and staff in order to uncover just how engaged nonprofit employees really are, and why.
The 2015 UST Nonprofit Employee Engagement & Retention Report reveals that nonprofit employees identify culture or office environment as a top factor that influences their general happiness in the workplace. And with 1/3 of these nonprofit employees saying they were “Somewhat” to “Extremely” likely to leave their jobs within the next year, it’s imperative that nonprofit organizations educate themselves on the latest engagement and retention strategies.
To foster a more positive workplace culture at your nonprofit, you can define your organization’s core values, communicate them regularly, establish rewards for demonstrating them, and ensure they are part of an employee’s experience from the interview all the way through their career.
