Webinar – Compensation Practices to Attract, Retain & Engage the Right Talent @ Online
Nov 8 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Compensation Practices That Attract, Retain & Engage the Right Talent

Do you dread the “pay discussion” during interviews with amazing candidates, or fear the day that your high-performers will request an increase that your budget cannot sustain? If you feel as if your organization cannot compete for talent with your current pay program, and that there is little you can do to change that, you’re not alone! The good news is that there are plenty of tools at your disposal which can help you position your mission and culture to the right talent and with compensation that they can be proud of. Sign up for this webinar and discover new ways to attract, retain and engage a workforce that will advance your mission.

You will gain clarity on how to:

  • Develop or modernize your compensation philosophy and align it with your program, mission and culture
  • Identify the elements of an effective compensation plan that can help your nonprofit to attract new talent and motivate and retain existing employees
  • Take your compensation strategies beyond base pay in order to appeal to talent with various motivators

Featured Insight: Habits of Highly Effective Nonprofit Leaders

What sets the effective nonprofit leaders apart from the rest? We have the answers.

We connected with high-performing nonprofit leaders from organizations like the National 4-H Council and the YWCA and asked them what makes them tick. Each leader had unique insights into key habits that help them lead effectively, which we synergized into four key themes.

The most effective leaders:

  1. Place a high value on education
  2. Empower others
  3. Embrace Change
  4. Leverage their networks

These are habits you can cultivate in yourself and in your most promising nonprofit employees.
