Event Details

On average, employee-related costs can account for upwards of 70% of organizational expenses. The relationship you have with your workforce is both your most significant risk and your greatest opportunity and, within the non-profit sector, there is a growing awareness that underinvestment in your people is counterproductive.

Career management – even for the smallest non-profits – offers a strategic lever for stronger performance. Indeed, career management affects more than just employee satisfaction and loyalty. It drives better client service, faster identification of ways to deliver on your mission and increased opportunity for growth – for staff as well as for your organization.

Join workforce expert owner Lisa Taylor, author of a groundbreaking new CERIC-published book, Retain and Gain: Career Management for Non-Profits and Charities, to identify low-cost tips, activities and actions that Managers and Leaders in Non-Profit sector can take right now (some in only 10 minutes a day) to attract, engage and retain your staff.

Join to learn more on:

  • Research, facts and statistics that shed new light on Canada’s non-profit workforce
  • Practical career management tools to use with employees in ways that advance thriving careers and build the capacity of the non-profit sector
  • New graduates, the aging workforce and precarious employment

In this dynamic breakfast presentation, Lisa will connect the dots on how career management can help you address your most critical employee challenges with concrete activities, tips, and actions to foster your employee’s development in your organization. She will also debunk common misconceptions such as small non-profits and charities with flat organizational structures and limited resources can’t establish good career practices. You will learn how to make the link between bold organizational results and career-focused staff to realize the full potential of your workforce.


This breakfast meeting is also a great opportunity for you to share your successes and challenges and connect with other nonprofit leaders working to motivate and engage staff across the sector.
