As a non-profit organization, you strive to make a positive change in your community. Whether that be through medical care, leisure, filling skills gaps, education, or welfare, you set out to create a better community for your fellow Canadians.
What plays a big part in effectuating that change? People.
You hire staff and coordinate with volunteers to work with people around your community to make a social, environmental, or economic change.
Every staff member and volunteer are part of your organization’s people management success. But, are you effectively finding ways to pay, develop, and manage your people to drive that change?
It’s no easy task when it comes to managing a nonprofit’s Payroll & HR. You must provide accurate information to donors, boards, or funders, and demonstrate that you are fulfilling your mission and goals with the funds received.
You are tasked with tracking employees and volunteer hours and must coordinate the schedules of all staff and volunteers. As a result, there’s a lot of complexity when it comes to scheduling, nonprofit payroll management and reporting requirements.
All of which can make it difficult to spot any discrepancies in payroll and accounting. As a non-profit organization, payroll related expenses can be as much as 75% of your total operating budget.
But what can you do to reduce this number, and start to easily collect and report on the data needed to back up all the good that you do?
