New report on Volunteer Management trends

Do you lead, manage or coordinate volunteers? Ever wonder how others in your position are faring when it comes to volunteer management practices, challenges and needs? 

Researchers at Volunteer Pro, via their distribution partners The Centre for Volunteering in NSW, have been wondering the same thing so they conducted a survey to find out. The result is the 2018 Volunteer Management Progress Report and it is now available to read. This is the third year the global survey has been taken and it now covers over 1500 leaders in 18 countries, including Australia. It covers all kinds of organisations and causes including non-profits, government agencies, congregations and businesses that involve volunteers in communities.

This annual 'state of the industry' report covers the top challenges for volunteer administrators, how supported they felt by their co-workers, looked at how well diversity and inclusion are fostered, the establishment of retention benchmarks, volunteer numbers across industries, plus information on manager salaries and work satisfaction.
