Expanding Our Reach: Staff Sign-Up Contest

As The Federation strives to meet the needs of our members (and to respond to the complexity inherent in the social care sector), the content, services, and supports we are creating and sharing with members are increasingly valuable and relevant to staff other than just an organization’s Executive Director.

Our recent outreach regarding the Employer Health Tax saw us talking with Finance Directors and Human Resources Directors. Articles from our Research to Practice Network and our monthly Research Bulletins are developed with an even more diverse audience in mind—as are our Leadership 2020 newsletters and the News Clippings.

And as we began working on some of the actions that came out of our 2018 Social Policy Forum, we realized that The Federation needs an even wider reach in order for these activities to be as successful as we want them to be. This is why we are asking all of our member organizations to encourage their staff to subscribe to our communication channels! As an extra incentive, we are offering some of the books from the Reconciliation Book Club’s reading list as a prize for the first member organization to sign up 10 new subscribers!

To be clear, The Federation remains very focused on supporting the leadership needs of the sector, but we also want to be intentional about supporting leadership, engagement, and learning regardless of staff position.

So forward this note to your staff and colleagues and encourage them to sign up. If you have any questions about these efforts or The Federation’s different communication channels, don’t hesitate to contact us. (And you can see the list of books up for grabs on the Reconciliation Book Club webpage.)
