Making a bad hiring decision happens. It may not be that the employee is a poor worker, but rather the company and the employee turned out not to be a good fit.
The same thing can be said for a volunteer and a nonprofit—sometimes they just don’t mesh. This is something that you don’t want happening on a consistent basis, so as a manager you need a process on how to determine whether or not the two are a good match.
Consider trial periods and regular check-ins to make sure that you are getting the most out of your volunteers and that they are getting enough out of your nonprofit.
