Understanding current organizational trends, practices, and attitudes toward volunteer engagement is critical to designing a project for enhancing volunteer engagement efforts. JFFixler Group designs online surveys for distribution to an unlimited number of staff and volunteers to assess current practices. Telephone interviews are conducted to enhance the research as well.
JFFixler Group’s customized assessments collect both demographic and programmatic data—revealing current practice, staff and volunteer perceptions, and organizational strengths and opportunities. JFFixler Group analyzes survey data and prepares a report that includes recommendations for future volunteer engagement initiatives.

“It has been my pleasure to work with Jill Fixler this past year in changing the culture of our hospital Volunteer program. Jill was able to see our vision, our current environment, and what we needed to do to have a successful transition not only for our Volunteer department. but to get buy-in from hospital administration and management. We have created new volunteer assignments that require contemporary skill sets, and hospital staff are seeing volunteers value in a new light. We now have recruited a COO, Executive Directors, Social Workers, nurses, teachers, and financial experts to volunteer in new roles providing much needed support for the hospital staff on levels they had never imagined”. —Nancy Whyte, Director of Volunteer Services, Senior Services and Community Education, Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital
