Our ability to offer training has been significantly impacted by COVID-19. We are working on innovative ways to bring you training going forward. In the meantime, we can organise small group training on the following topics:
A budget is an empowering financial tool that can take control of your money and financial future. Watch this budgeting video from Westpac’s financial education experts, the Davidson Institute to discover the step-by-step process to successful budgeting. Plus, you’ll hear some great saving tips!
The Executive Series is a diverse range of vlogs presented by experts. We’ll launch a new vlog each month that will help you to build capacity in your organisation or community.
Part 1: Employee and Volunteer Engagement
Presented by James Fulford-Talbot, Co-founder of Vexamen
Clear position descriptions
Be clear on the role you want the volunteer to undertake and what success looks like.
Ensure your volunteers know what is expected of them & what to do when they’re not sure.
The volunteer should be fully inducted into the organisation so they understand how it operates.
Regularly prepare work
Don’t assume they know what to do and be prepared with work for them each day.
Thank your volunteers
Always stop what you’re doing and face the volunteer to thank them for their work.
Have a clear strategy of how you will reward volunteers and keep them motivated for their hard work.
Don’t surprise volunteers with change. Keep them informed and be open to suggestions & ideas.
Promote a “no question is a bad question” culture, one that they feel comfortable in asking questions.
Check in on progress
Don’t just leave a volunteer alone; check they are going ok and allow them to raise any issues they might be having.
Ask for feedback
Volunteers have tremendous backgrounds and experience, and can be an asset to advance your event, program or work place.
Get in touch so we can support your personal and organisational development and help you reach your social change goals.
