Integrating Paid and Volunteer Staff - A Recipe for Success

Volunteers have long been the backbone of not-for-profit organizations all across the country. From ambulance services, fire departments, youth and community groups to national agencies like the American Red Cross, recruiting and retaining motivated volunteers is a topic of paramount importance.

Many organizations, both for-profit and not-for-profit, struggle from time to time with managing both paid and volunteer staffs. The trick is to appreciate that it is not a question of right or wrong or us and them. The focus needs to be on the ability of your organization to fulfill its mission and provide outstanding service to your clients.

  • Do you simply wish they would stop whining and get back to work?
