Is It Time to Recruit New Talent?
by: F. Duke Haddad
I was on a Zoom call the other day with an experienced senior human resource consultant. This outstanding individual was hired to find a new nonprofit executive for a major organization. The job description was perfect and incredibly detailed. It seemed like the right candidate would need to have tremendous experience and credentials. Since this was a highly visible new executive position, the search would probably need to be nationwide.
The consultant and I discussed the upcoming complex recruiting process, leaving no stone unturned. If you have ever been charged with leading a search for nonprofit executive, you quickly realized how long and hard the road might be to finding the ideal fit for your organization. If it is time to recruit new talent, and you are new to this daunting task, do you understand this process?
