Nonprofit HR announces Strategic partnership with Birches Group From the Newsroom: Nonprofit HR Announces Strategic Partnership with Birches Group 

This new partnership brings together the firms’ combined expertise to provide comprehensive compensation and benefits surveys to Nonprofit HR’s network of clients, ultimately bringing together market data for U.S.-based nonprofits and NGOs.

In commenting on the partnership, Lisa McKeown, Managing Director of Total Rewards, Nonprofit HR, said, “U.S.-based social impact organizations and the U.S.-based operations of most NGOs are very closely aligned in mission, values and types of roles, so including this data in our analysis is a natural fit and opens the door to more collaboration and partnership amongst the different clients that Nonprofit HR and Birches Group partners with; they are more similar than we realize!”

“Nonprofit HR did an amazing job. Not only was I impressed with their work (and I am not easy to impress), the Leadership Team all felt they did a thorough and accurate assessment. The COO and CFO are following Nonprofit HR’s recommendations for us. This led to revising our compensation philosophy, our policy, and we are now instituting a formal employee recognition program (with spot awards) as part of our overall total rewards program. This is all being shared with employees this Thursday, and team leaders will meet individually with employees to discuss their particular situations.

Nonprofit HR was very easy to work with, was very helpful, and certainly is professional in the compensation arena! We would not hesitate to reach out to Nonprofit HR and use their services again.”

Bonnie Karns, Director, Human Resources & Office Administration, ICMA


“When our organization was in the planning process to spin off from our fiscal sponsor and build our independent 501c3 infrastructure, [our Total Rewards Consultant] was a huge support for our team in the full cycle process for implementing a brand new benefits program. This included wraparound support from start to finish, including needs assessment and strategy meetings, the request for proposal process to identify a broker that would suit our needs across all lines – insurance, fringe, 403b and general liability, broker interviews and selection, and the transition to set up, implementation, open enrollment and staff communications. This was a successful process and [our consultant] was like an extension of our team for several months, providing support, guidance and subject matter expertise when we needed it. It was a pleasure to work with [them] and the Nonprofit HR team!”

Sara Blumenfrucht, Director of People Operations, Alliance for Safety and Justice


“We contracted with NonprofitHR on a national salary banding analysis for our organization.  The research was complex and involved a number of different factors and layers to consider.  NonprofitHR was amazing in helping us understand the process, facilitating getting the data needed, explaining what decisions needed to be made, and was flexible with us through some unforeseen delays.  I am extremely happy with the results and the experience and I would recommend NonprofitHR to any organization looking to build their HR capacity.”

Stephen Bauer, Chief of Staff, Public Allies
