Laura Otten, the Executive Director of La Salle University’s Nonprofit Center, was the opening speaker at the first “National Nonprofit Human Resources Conference: Putting People at the Center,” sponsored by Action Without Borders, in Philadelphia, PA, USA, on June 12-14, 2003. This is an article based on her presentation, in which she offers a number of creative and low- or no-cost ways to offer employees meaningful benefits and professional development.

What is striking about her remarks beyond the important points she makes about ways to support paid staff even with limited funds is how often these ways have a volunteering connection. See what you think.
