NPA September Roundtable – The War for Talent: There is movement in the sector.. and the word is getting ‘round!​ ​

Rountable

Is there a war for talent in the Australian NFP job market and should we be concerned?​​

A recent Gallup analysis found that 48% of America’s working population are actively job searching or watching for opportunities – and businesses, across industries, are facing staggeringly high resignation rates, whilst struggling to find talent to fill roles. ​​

So, what’s happening here in Australia? ​​

We’ve asked three experts in their field to join us to share their observations of the Australian job market; and what key factors they believe determine employee engagement.​​

How has the landscape changed for not-for-profit employers? ​

  • Are we all searching for the same talent eg. Digital and fundraising? Or are there broader issues at play?​
  • What are our employees looking for? How can we ensure they find it in their current roles? ​
  • Why would talent choose us over another organisation?​
  • When we find the right person, how do we effectively onboard them to ensure attachment – and avoid detachment in the longer term? ​​

Our three Roundtable Guests will each bring a different perspective from their area of specialty.. with clear alignment on the importance of culture and purpose to the engagement equation.​​

Our Roundtable Guests:​

  • Nina Mapson Bone – MD, Beaumont People ​
  • Hiam Sakakini – Founder, The Culture Equation​
  • Anthony Sork – MD, Sork HC Pty Ltd; shcBOND​​
