As I am working to wrap things up here at Aspiration before I move to San Diego, I am taking steps to prepare for my replacement. Unfortunately, staff turnover is quite common in nonprofit organizations. Even though no one really wants employee turnover, I think as managers we need to create processes and be prepared when turnover occurs so things can continue to run smoothly in the organization.
If you are in the Bay Area, please join me for the last Nonprofit Operations Brown bag lunch to discuss, "Preparing for Employee Transition," on August 8, 2007.
We'll be discussing taking steps to prepare for this transition including, but not limited to:
1. Updating the operations manual
2. Changing passwords, accounts, and list ownership
3. HR practices for an employees last day
4. Procedures and steps for training new hires
This Brown Bag lunch discussion will take place on Wednesday, August 8, 2007 from 12-1 PM at the San Francisco Nonprofit Technology Center, 1370 Mission St., 4th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103. Questions: 415-839-6456.
Notes from this discussion can be found on the Nonprofit Operations Wiki.
Hope to see you there!
