Crew Resource Management: Employment Trends and Challenges


The world of employment risk is an evolving landscape. Gone are the days when nonprofit human resource professionals—or staff wearing HR hats—could simply update handbooks to reflect recently passed state and federal employment laws and classify employees with minimal worry about the consequences.

The risk is very real and nonprofits aren’t exempt. Even the noblest mission-driven charities can face employment challenges, and knowledge is the best tool to protect both your nonprofit’s reputation and its bank account.
