the WoW of NGOs – Save the Children w/ Adrian Förster
What are the challenges NGOs face when managing the workforce? How easy is it to attract talent? How do NGOs cooperate with one another on the ground? How do they share talent? In Part 2 we go a bit deeper and unveil some of the romanticism that at times is linked to NGOs. It is often a world made of hardships where your own safety and security can be at risk depending on which parts of the world you are operating in. Adrian Förster, CEO of Save the Children, has no doubts that to join an NGO and stay motivated and engaged you need a very strong intrinsic drive and camaraderie that is linked to your sense of purpose that helps you overcome the hardships!
