Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Great nonprofits are driven by great talent. Getting great talent depends on attracting, choosing and supporting great people. The Nonprofit’s Guide to Human Resources offers a systematic method for recruiting and retaining the right talent to fuel a nonprofit to achieve its all-important mission."   Nora Silver, Director, Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership
Library Journal
Employees of nonprofit organizations (and librarians) are not always aware of their workplace's singular human resources (HR) needs. For example, the involvement of stipend volunteers and interns raises special questions about minimum wage laws. And consider that while all employers must follow nondiscrimination laws regarding people with disabilities, some nonprofits may have mission-related reasons to discriminate favorably toward hiring people with disabilities. Masaoka (editor in chief, Blue Avocado) helps nonprofit HR employees understand the legal particulars and create policies around these and many other issues, including salaries and benefits, supervision and team leadership, terminations and layoffs, and workplace safety. Each chapter has been reviewed by an adviser working in nonprofit HR and features real-life examples and exposes common myths. Readers will occasionally encounter sample forms, letters, and policies. VERDICT The major reference works for nonprofit organizations cover some of these topics but not to the extent discussed in this important work. Recommended.—Heidi Senior, Univ. of Portland Lib., OR
