Getting Staff Buy-In for 

Volunteer Engagement

Speaker: Kim Beasley, Director of Volunteer Services & Community Engagement at A.G. Rhodes Health and Rehab

Often one of the biggest challenges to a new model of volunteer engagement is the resistance of paid staff. Often attitudes and fears of our co-workers prevent us from expanding the work that volunteers do. How do you ensure that staff utilizes volunteers without feeling resentful or threatened? In this meeting we'll explore:

  • How to assess the feelings and attitudes of paid staff around working with volunteers
  • What does paid staff need to know about working with volunteers
  • How to talk to paid staff about and train them on working with volunteers
