What DRi offers in HR Searches

Holistic understanding of Human Resources in the non-profit world

As an executive search firm that works exclusively with non-profit organizations, DRi has an unparalleled understanding of human resources in the non-profit sector.

We know our clients compete with the best organizations in the world for talent, but we also know that talent isn’t enough; our clients need sustained passion. Non-profit HR departments must design compensation and benefits packages that secure the best of both; they must develop staff policies that live up to the letter of the law and the spirit of their own values; they must design staff structures that foster organization-wide partnerships; and they must creatively engage staff as members of a movement—for in the non-profit sector, everyone is a potential ambassador to stakeholders and donors. Developing an HR department that achieves this range of goals requires a blend of legal knowledge, organizational psychology, interpersonal skills, and more.

An experienced guide to reach your goal

Using our own experience in key HR functions—including recruitment, organizational design, staff assessments, and training—we design HR searches that do not just yield great hires; they improve the engagement, effectiveness, and efficiency of all the other hires that you make.

Our Results

Utilizing the DRi approach, we have identified executives who have built in-house recruiting systems for major national organizations; created professional development programs to support more than 2,000 staff members; and have built new HR systems for international organizations with offices around the globe.
