Chris Brewster
is Professor of International Human Resource Management at the Henley Business School, University of Reading, UK. In addition to his teaching role and consultancy assignments for many private sector organizations, Prof. Brewster has worked with the United Nations, many of the UN organizations and agencies, the European Commission, the IFC and the AfDB, NGOs and other international organizations on various aspects of their own human resource management.

This workshop explores the crucial subject of people management in not-for-profit heritage organizations. People are simultaneously the largest single item of operating costs and the only source of conservation, service and innovation. They are therefore the key asset in all organizations focused on those objectives and the management of people is a key concern for executives.

During these 3 days, the importance of human resource management in not-for-profit organizations and the distinctive nature of such organizations (public and non-government; large and small) will be investigated. The different stages of management of employees and volunteers will also be examined, in an effort to identify the key issues and the practical options available to managers who are not HRM experts.

The course involves working with the participants to surface their issues and concerns, to encourage mutual sharing and learning and to developing ideas and networks. These three days offer an opportunity for reflection and learning and for that, active participation from all course members is required. This course does not come with a pre-established set of answers. It is the firm belief of its organizers and leaders that whilst it is possible to learn from existing research and experience, there is no ‘one best way’ that fits every organization: people management is different in every context and it is the responsibility of managers in each case to understand their situation and to take appropriate action.
