Every organizations’s single largest expense is staff compensation. Nonprofit careers are historically high burn-out professions, and tight budgets, mixed with difficult clientele makes it hard to attract and retain top-quality staff. In addition, we fight the misconception that nonprofit staff can “work for free.” In reality, we know that running a successful nonprofit is the same (and is sometimes even harder) than running a successful for-profit business, so competitive staff compensation, including salaries AND benefits, is an important step in retaining quality staff.

Please join Dustin Johnson for a webinar that will equip you with the tools to maintain your nonprofit’s competitive edge in staff compensation… even if you don’t have endless resources!


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Creating a salary range matrix for all staff
  • Paying competitively; including ways to consult with nonprofit partners and utilizing compensation survey materials
  • Providing benefits (Including: less costly retirement options, time off policies, etc.)
  • Top reasons for staff turnover and its impact on your organization
  • How to roll out your new compensation package to staff members
  • Leave with:
    • Templates for compensation surveys of nonprofit partners
    • Examples of a variety of benefit packages
    • An understanding of how to speak to your employees about compensation
