Without the resources for a dedicated HR staff, the directors
and managers of many nonprofits, charities, and libraries take on HR tasks
themselves — there is simply no one else to do it. Even so, working outside their
skill set and interests in such a complex field as HR can become time-consuming
and frustrating. In fact, this is a common reason for burnout.
Although basics like issuing paychecks can be handled through a payroll service,
when it comes to benefits, compensation, and compliance, only a professional with
up-to-date knowledge can be trusted for advice.
And if a nonprofit lacks funding
and resources for HR functions, then policy manuals and forms, performance
reviews, and regular training can all become desperately out of date or be nonexistent.
When crisis situations require fast action, personality clashes get out of
control, or disgruntled staff threaten lawsuits, that could be the last straw
for someone who never wanted to be in charge of HR in the first place.
Considering this particular need of many nonprofits,
TechSoup has partnered with an on-demand human resources service — HR Solutions Partners.
This new discount program allows TechSoup member organizations to directly communicate
with an HR expert by requesting two- or four-hour consultation packages. These
consultation hours can be divided up and used across multiple sessions, with
each session having a fifteen-minute minimum.
Eligible organizations can choose from the following:
Request the additional-hours discounts as many times as
you need. The program has no limit on the number of these requests.
Receive answers to your questions and ensure compliance. You
can reach the human resources experts at HR Solutions Partners by
phone or email. Note, however, that these support hours must be used within six
months of your TechSoup request.
Use this service for any of the following reasons:
You'll also gain access to a library of forms
and letter templates for a wide variety of circumstances such as new hire
processing, performance management, job descriptions, leaves of absence, employee
termination, and other situations.
HR Solutions Partners even offers organizations additional discounts on employee handbooks, HR
compliance assessments, harassment prevention training, contract services, and
