HR and its management play a vital role in Non-profit organisations. However, due to the constraints of specific characteristics of NPOs and the combined effects of having to operate under Government contracts, the challenges arising from competition with the private sector, and the influence of the global economic recession the problems of HR in NPOs have been exacerbated. So why do people choose to work in NPOs? Are they there for monetary or non-monetary reasons? This presentation will mainly detail the motives of potential staff to join an NPO and will be focused on the theoretical model for joining motivation. The case study of a Trade Association, one typical NPO in China, will be used to illustrate the HR challenges, issues and joining motivation of workers in NPOs in China.
