The 2015 Pennsylvania Nonprofit Salary and Benefits Report will help your organization understand trends, stay competitive, attract the best talent and keep the amazing talent you have!
What Other Say About the Report:
"I was not expecting such quality and breadth. The team that put this together deserves a major pat on the back. One of the organizations I work with sent me a note shortly after publication thanking more for getting them to participate - they were very pleased with the results.
Before retiring, I was an HR generalist with a Fortune 250 corporation. While I did a bit of everything, my specialty was compensation. I worked with and participated in many surveys from people like Hay Associates, Mercer, Culpepper and the like. We paid significant fees for our access to these major providers, spent much time in job matching and date input, and relied heavily on their analysis in our compensation planning.
The PANO survey compares favorably to that of the folks that do surveying for a living. It is far better than anything I have seen over the past 10 years covering local/regional nonprofit organizations. And all the benefits information ices the cake. I'm sure the participating organizations are pleased with your efforts. Thank you for taking time to do it - and I do appreciate the effort put into it. You have delivered a very nice and greatly needed product." - Jim
