How can NGOs ensure that their employees live, support and promote their values, throughout the employee lifecycle, from on-boarding to off-boarding?

cinfo Switzerland has conducted a survey of 17 partner organisations, collected examples of good practices and developed a self-assessment tool for organisations that are active in international cooperation. The study is the first of its kind and provides NGOs with a great learning tool to continuously improve their processes of on-boarding, on-board keeping and off-boarding.

During the webinar, (organised jointly between cinfo and the CHS Alliance), the speaker Sandra Rothboeck will discuss the findings from the study and lead a discussion on good practice across the sector.
