Recruiting, Training and Motivating Volunteer Workers.
Pell, Arthur R.
Some persons seek volunteer work actively and participate enthusiastically. Others have to be recruited and motivated to make them successful as volunteer workers. The purpose of this book is to guide the professional staffs and the volunteer leaders of the groups that provide opportunities for volunteers in the best techniques in the selection and utilization of this vast source of man/woman power. The author discussed where to find volunteers, how to attract them to volunteer work, how to interview, select and reject prospective workers, and how to place them within the organization. A formal training program and techniques for motivation and supervision of volunteers are described. Finally, the author looks at ways to adapt the modern techniques of behavioral science to the volunteer situation so that the leadership of organizations can get the same benefits from dealing with their volunteers that businesses obtain by using similar approaches with their staffs.
