Event Details


Do you have a 5-star approach to attracting and keeping volunteers?

Just like major companies strive to be an employer of choice, so too should volunteer-involving organisations.

That’s because effective recruitment and retention of staff and volunteers makes people and organisations more productive, stable, and happier. It also helps reduces workforce conflict, staff/volunteer turnover, and keeps costs down.

Regular evaluation of your organisation’s volunteer strategy and practices – including benchmarking them against similar organisations – is an essential part of effective volunteer management.

Refresh and review your recruitment practices explore the concepts of engagement.

  • Are you ready to recruit?
  • How/where do you find a perfect match?
  • Policies and Procedures to support your efforts
  • Tips, tools & techniques for interview & selection
  • Support, rewards and motivation
  • Volunteer engagement
  • National Standards supporting your work.

Please note that on the day of the workshop you must arrive for registration at 9:15am for a 9:30am sharp start.
