Master today’s best practices for managing people in mission-driven and values-driven organizations. Today, many HR professionals manage people in mission-driven organizations that define success in terms of fulfilling goals that are not profit centered. Whether these organizations call themselves non-profit, charitable, religious, cultural, humanitarian, public sector, or non-governmental, HR professionals must often adjust their objectives, processes, and approaches to help them succeed. Human Resource Management in Mission-Driven Organizations summarizes research about how these organizations are and aren’t different from profit-driven firms, and guides HR leaders and practitioners in managing their people more successfully. Using many real-world examples and vignettes, the authors explain where private sector HRM techniques work well in mission- and values-driven organizations, and show where they may need to be modified. The authors present specific coverage of international and intergovernmental organizations; volunteer organizations and charities; religious and cultural organizations; and the public sector. You’ll find example-rich coverage of institutional objectives, structures, policies, practices, and challenges; and expert coverage of the entire employee lifecycle: recruitment, selection, training/development, engagement, retention, diversity, and leadership development. The authors also present a full chapter on B-Corporations, green companies, and social entrepreneurship: balancing profit-driven and socially-driven performance goals in the same organization. For all senior managers and HR management professionals in mission-driven and values-driven organizations, and for a growing number of HRM faculty and researchers interested in organizations beyond the traditional private sector.
