Are You Losing Your CSR Talent to Social Enterprise?
In my 10 years of working in talent recruiting and development in the nonprofit and social enterprise sectors, I often find myself in conversations with private sector professionals looking for a change. The scenario is fairly predictable at this point: a successful business person comes home every night feeling that he or she is missing out on the opportunity to make a difference. These professionals usually are quite successful, but unhappy because they feel completely disconnected from some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
Interestingly, I recently realized that it might take much less than a dramatic change to an entirely new sector to bridge this disconnect.
