365 IDEAS for Recruiting, Retaining, Motivating and Rewarding Your Volunteersby Sunny Fader According to one reviewer, “This is a delicately crafted book that will produce results from the moment you read the first chapter… It’s not a book that you’ll read once and forget about, but a tool you’ll reference on a consistent basis as you guide staff, develop new programs and interact with colleagues. This book leaves no stone unturned when it comes to looking for the best solutions in maximizing volunteers.” Brian Brandt, Summit Solutions Group I have known the author, Sunny Fader, for years. She has worked with many non-profit organizations so I am confident she exudes expertise in this area. If you think it’s hard to “motivate” people who work for an income, try retaining people who work for free! I’ll bet there are ideas here we can ALL learn from.
