REALITIES: Equity in Total Rewards Practices in Nonprofits
Sep 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

REALITIES: A DEI Education Series by Nonprofit HR

 

When was your organization’s last compensation review, and was it reactionary or a strategically developed to create a more equitable workforce? The 2019 Diversity Practices Survey revealed that only 16% of respondents track pay gaps through the lenses of equity and diversity. Additionally, only 9% said their organizations changed their total rewards practices to realize greater diversity. Today’s digitally-savvy, vocally-empowered employees have many tools at their disposal to publicly share their career experiences and to benchmark how they are compensated and rewarded. Nonprofits are not immune to having their brand criticized for failing to offer fair and equitable compensation.

Sign up now and understand:

  • Where your organization’s total rewards program falls along the equity spectrum
  • How to identify and address compensation and benefits inequities through race and gender
  • How to evaluate whether or not your total rewards practices are undermining your diversity objectives

Speaker details coming soon.

REALITIES: Employee Engagement & Belonging Practices in Nonprofits
Oct 20 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

REALITIES: A DEI Education Series by Nonprofit HR

 

How high on the scale would your employees rank their sense of belonging in your organization? It is not enough to assume that your employees feel connected and like they belong at work. The third-highest driver for voluntary turnover in organizations, 26.2%, was dissatisfaction and disengagement with current organizational culture according to Nonprofit HR’s 2019 Retention Practices Survey. Belonging is linked to increased job performance and can strengthen employee engagement. Understanding the extent to which your diverse staff feels a part of the culture is an important data set to understand.

Sign up now and hear:

  • How to identify and address employee engagement differences based on employee demographic makeup
  • New ways that employees may expect to influence, engage and be heard in the workplace
  • How to create meaningful employee engagement practices aimed at fostering belonging

REALITIES: A DEI Education Series by Nonprofit HR

 

Are your leaders truly ready to foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce? Closely examining how your leaders manage your workplace culture can have a critical impact on your success. The 2019 Nonprofit Talent Retention Practices Survey revealed that 21% of respondents prematurely left organizations due to dissatisfaction/disengagement with current leadership. From recent headlines, it is clear that employees are seeking more outlets to voice their perspectives.

Sign up now and explore ways to:

  • Ways to initiate courageous conversations about DEI with out-of-touch leaders
  • Determine if your organization’s culture is being experienced differently based on age, gender, race and other differences

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.
