Employee Retention
cohesive values in the non-profit organization.
April 04 ∙ 1:00PM – 4:00PM ∙ Stratford
$35 per participant

Working in a non-profit organization is a ‘calling’. It isn’t for everyone and finding the right people to engage in your mission with any longevity, may be difficult. Join me for a 3-hour workshop on a new philosophy of hiring not just a warm body for the position, but hiring an individual that authentically has the same values as your organization. With common values, employee engagement leads to fulfillment and employee retention.  Taking a unique position with the hiring process by matching individual values with organizational values provides a sustainable opportunity to make a hiring decision that has positive long-term results for the new employee and the organization.

Whether you know a little or a lot about social media – there are stills stumbling blocks on each platform that we just can’t wrap our minds around.  The first half of the workshop moves through the most useful platforms, the best uses for non-profits and the demographics of our area and how the platforms have changed and updated over the past few years.   The second half of the workshop is based in strategy, planning, analytics and tracking.  An additional discussion will relate to creating and controlling online conversations.

  • Instagram, You tube, Twitter and Facebook as it relates to non-profits
  • Live streaming
  • Analytics and tracking.
  • Social media strategy, purpose, planning and reporting
  • Creating and controlling social media conversation

Susan demonstrated a broad and comprehensive grasp of social media platforms, information and skills.  Pacing of the workshop was very good – it allowed the participants to absorb and to ask questions.  Susan also included lots of practical examples and demonstrations.  I highly recommend both Susan and the workshop to anyone seeking to promote an organization or business through advanced social media skills!

Susan was a patient and informative teacher.  She was purposeful as she led our group through what initially felt like murky waters, leaving us enriched with a much better understanding of the social media landscape following our time together.  We are lucky to have such an informed resource in our community.
