Effective relations between paid staff and volunteers can lead to an enjoyable and productive workplace for both groups. Organisations wishing to involve volunteers need to firstly consult with those individuals with whom the volunteers will be working. Volunteer roles, management and support, needs to be clearly defined with paid staff to reduce the risk of mistrust.
Staff need to see that volunteers complement and strengthen their capacity and enhance the capability of the organisation to achieve its goals rather than fear their involvement. This training will provide strategies and ideas for successful staff and volunteer relations
