In today’s rapidly evolving landscape, staying ahead of the curve is paramount for Not-for-Profit (NFP) leaders to effectively navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by the shifting dynamics of the workforce.

Join us for our half-day June Workshop as we delve into the intricacies of “Rethinking the Currency of Employment in the For-Purpose Sector,” where we will explore:

THE GLOBAL TRENDS Gain valuable insights into the common themes emerging globally that are reshaping the face of the workforce. Explore how these trends will impact your organisation and identify which ones are poised to have the most significant effects in both the short and long term. Stay informed and proactive in your strategic planning to ensure your organisation remains agile and responsive to emerging trends.

THE NEW CURRENCY OF EMPLOYMENT Discover the latest trends in recruitment and talent management that are revolutionising the way NFPs attract and retain top talent. Understand the innovative strategies for identifying and engaging with high-caliber candidates and learn what they are looking for – and valuing – in their roles and employer. Don’t let valuable talent slip through the cracks – equip yourself with the tools and knowledge to be an attractive employer of choice and to keep your team engaged and motivated.

THE CULTURAL IMPLICATIONS Learn how to leverage emerging trends in organisational culture to drive performance and success. Uncover the keys to elevating culture and breaking down silos within your organisation, fostering collaboration, and boosting engagement among your team members. By embracing change and adapting your culture to align with evolving workforce norms, you can position your NFP for sustainable growth and impact.

PANEL & NETWORKING DISCUSSION WITH INDUSTRY LEADERS Our panel of seasoned industry leaders will share their experiences and insights into navigating the challenges of workforce management in the For-Purpose Sector. Gain practical knowledge from real-world case studies, and learn from the successes and failures of others in the field. Discover what changes NFPs are making to the ‘currency’ they offer, and gain valuable insights into workforce engagement across different skill sets and demographics.

PRACTICAL SHARING OF IDEAS We will invite our NPA Members and participating guests to share practical ideas and insights into what’s working and what’s not within their NFP organisations.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable knowledge, insights, and strategies for rethinking the currency of employment in the For-Purpose Sector. Secure your spot today and join us as we explore the future of workforce management in NFPs.
