Non Profit Total Reward Strategy: Earning Your Return on Investment

Non Profit Total Reward Strategy: Earning Your Return on Investment

As a result of the slow growth economy, non-profit organizations are facing decreased funding due to federal and states’ fiscal deficits as well as a significant shift with grant-makers who are increasingly funding awards on a performance/return on investment basis. In addition, the soaring costs of healthcare insurance are adding significant pressure to operating costs. Without new revenue growth, many non-profits are looking for ways to measure and increase the value/return on their social mission and investments. Consistent with these changes, some non-profits are responding by trying to increase the “return” on their services and programs in terms of program execution, utilization, and measurable results. Given this environment, non-profits are being forced to examine the viability of their highest cost centers, most particularly, employee compensation and benefits for value against performance as well as market competitiveness.

Non-profit Boards and senior management are questioning what the appropriate compensation and benefit programs should be, at what levels they should be funded, and how to drive accountability and performance in the employee workforce.
