Event: Hire Them, Keep Them: Attracting and Retaining Advancement Talent in a Competitive Market
February 21-23, 2019: Anaheim, CA at the CASE District VII Connect West Conference
Exact date and time of session TBA.
High turnover rates of advancement leaders are becoming the norm in higher education. The supply of talented fundraisers is limited, and team members routinely receive outside offers for career growth and higher salary. The result: a talent shortage that forces managers to hire from a pool of underqualified candidates. How can your team combat this growing issue?
This session will explore strategies to recruit, assess, and retain top performers, including professionals with no development experience but a wealth of transferable skills. Attendees will explore groundbreaking research on this subject and hear insights from an advancement leader and an executive recruiter.
