Survey Details

2013-Overview-182x300Every year, Nonprofit HR invites more than 20,000 nonprofit organizations from across the United States and Canada to participate in a survey of employment practices within the sector. The survey focuses on four key areas: Staff Size and Projected Growth; Recruitment Strategies and Budgeting; Staffing Challenges; and Staffing Resource Management. With scarce statistical information being available on nonprofit human resources practices and trends, the collection of staffing, recruitment and retention data is an important step in identifying issues, concerns and opportunities for nonprofit organizations, funders, researchers, capacity builders and others to systematically address the current and emerging human resources needs of the sector.
