CiviHR Recruitment: Insights from an HR Professional

 

Progress Made Since Previous Blog

In my previous blog on CiviHR Recruitment, I had shared our approach to develop the business requirements for this module.

We also reached out to several reputed nonprofits to get some feedback straight from the horse's mouth - the HR professional who is the intended end user of CiviHR. 

User Control over Data Privacy

India has over 3.3 million registered non-profits (one for every 400 people!), many of which are growing and looking for better solutions to manage their fundraising efforts. There is an immense and exciting opportunity at hand. 
 
My team works closely with several non-profits that use CiviCRM in India, of which some have an international presence. Over the last six months we have had the opportunity to introduce CiviCRM to many other non-profits, who were very impressed by the wide range of functionalities already built into this affordable CRM.
