Recruiting volunteers means asking people to work in your organization without pay. You can recruit them formally (asking them to fill out application forms, offering them a job title, etc.) or informally (by asking your sister to help design a membership brochure, for instance), or anything in between.

Although volunteers work without pay, they do it to receive something – no one does things for no reason.  We make sure that your organization gets the most out of this important manpower resource by determining what motivates each individual and by engaging them accordingly.

Recruitment, as the military will be the first to explain, is a sales job. Unlike military recruiting, however, volunteer recruiting offers no guarantee that someone will stick as a volunteer just because he or she’s signed up.  Your sales job has to accurately point out the advantages of volunteering with your organization, so that people will not only be eager when they begin, but will stay enthusiastic and continue to volunteer for a long time.

HMI will create a comprehensive plan for attracting, screening, training, and motivating volunteer candidates for your organization.  By simplifying this critical process for your nonprofit, we ensure the long-term sustainability and engagement of your most prized resource...Your committee volunteers.
