Curated List of HR Resources and Tools Tailored for Nonprofits and Small Businesses

Are you thinking about improvements you can make to your recruiting process this year? We've curated a list of HR resources and tools tailored for your nonprofit’s/small business’s unique needs. Let's dive in!

1️⃣ Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS): For a small organization not in need of a comprehensive HRIS just yet (see #2), consider platforms like SmartRecruiters or BambooHR. These ATS solutions streamline your recruitment pipeline—from posting jobs to screening candidates—making your process more organized and efficient.

2️⃣ Comprehensive HR Software Suites: For growing organizations (generally 20+ employees), take it a step further and explore options like Gusto or JazzHR. These all-in-one solutions are affordable yet manage everything from onboarding to benefits administration, simplifying HR tasks for small to mid-size teams. Side note: if you need help assessing and selecting from ATS/HRIS options, we can help!

3️⃣ Niche Job Boards: Platforms such as Idealist for non-profits or Dice for tech roles can amplify your reach. Targeting specialized job boards ensures your vacancies resonate with the right talent pool, as they are often emailed directly to job seekers in the industry as well.

4️⃣ Video Interviewing Platforms: Leverage tools like Zoom or HireVue. Conducting virtual interviews not only saves time but also facilitates seamless scheduling and evaluation of candidates across geographies.

5️⃣ Skills Assessment Tools: Consider utilizing DISC assessments or PXTSelect or other tools that are skill-specific. These assessments ensure you're making data-driven hiring decisions aligned with your organization's needs. Message us if you’d like a connection to our trusted assessment facilitators!

6️⃣ Employee Referral Programs: Create incentives using platforms like EmployeeReferrals. Encourage your current team to refer qualified candidates, tapping into their networks and enhancing employee engagement.

7️⃣ Social Media Recruiting: Maximize platforms like LinkedIn or Facebook. Don’t just post a job - share to your company and personal pages, engage with potential candidates in the comments, showcase your employer brand, and tag connections in the industry to reach a vast audience without breaking the bank.

8️⃣ Diversity and Inclusion Tools: Consider tools like Textio or Gender Decoder. These platforms help mitigate biases in job descriptions and assessments, fostering a more inclusive recruitment process. Make sure to also utilize the EEO tool in your HRIS/ATS system, if you have one (see #1 and #2).

9️⃣ Background Check Services: Partner with trusted providers like GoodHire or Checkr. Your ATS/HRIS may also offer integrated background check providers, or we can connect you to our trusted expert.

🔟 HR Training and Development Platforms: Invest in platforms like LinkedIn Learning or Udemy for Business. Empower your team with professional development resources, fostering growth, and enhancing retention.
