Finding – and keeping – the right people
Facilitated by Michel Ballieu, Executive Director of Biomed Alliance - Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe
Recruitment of staff members is key to the success and sustainability of our associations, but this important task requires not only experience, but also time, a lot of time, and rare are the associations benefiting from a dedicated HR specialist. Conducting the search for the best candidate can easily become a discouragingly heavy workload.
How can our associations make sure that this workload doesn’t affect our capacity to identify the quality among the quantity of applications?
It is all about a process, starting with framing the need into a clear and precise job description, through the advertisement of the open position, to the selection of the right professional.
This 2017 UIA Round Table workshop is dedicated to the important questions raised by the recruitment process and by the best way to retain right staff: Michel Ballieu, Association Adviser, will discuss this process with the workshop participants, based on his many years’ experience in hiring and managing associations staff such as operational specialists, team managers, and top executive positions.
Facilitated by Marleen Denef and Sarah Verschaeve, Partners at Curia
