Salary Survey Information ‘Critical’ for NFPs
12 December 2013 at 9:25 am
Retention of quality people is critical for all organisations, especially Not for Profits, according to the National Head of Social Sector Banking at Westpac, Barry Thatcher, who has urged people to take part in the Pro Bono Australia Salary Survey.
“The information from the Pro Bono Australia Salary Survey will provide all organisations in the social sector with vital information helping them to retain quality people and talent," he said.
The Head of BT Private Portfolio, Steve Dammerer agreed. “The Not for Profit sector is undergoing huge transformation, especially with the new reporting obligations and technological innovations. It is therefore critical to provide organisations with quality information on the industry around salary levels and related trends," he said.
Pro Bono Australia, in conjunction with Westpac Social Sector Banking and BT Private Portfolio, is again conducting Australia’s largest salary surveys aimed specifically at the Not for Profit sector.
“With the results of this annual survey we will provide an essential guide to salary levels and expectations, benchmarking, analysis and employment trends for the rapidly expanding range of Not for Profit and Community jobs,” Pro Bono Australia Founder Karen Mahlab said.
“We are calling on all Senior Managers and Executives working in the sector to complete this short survey and be a part of this vital initiative.
“Armed with last year’s extensive results, this year’s survey will allow for some strong comparative analysis of the growth within the sector.
“Close to 2000 people and organisations have accessed last year’s survey results, making this a major reference point for Not for Profit salaries in Australia. And more than 1500 people completed the online survey.
“We have invited Westpac and BT Private Portfolio to partner with us as they have a long track record of understanding and servicing the sector.”
Last year’s ground-breaking salary survey revealed the highlights and lowlights of annual remuneration, bonuses and professional development.
The survey found that few Not for Profit executives and managers are rewarded with salary bonuses and other work incentives or offered professional development.
“Pro Bono Australia’s broad engagement with over 700,000 people through its information portal enables us to draw on the sector’s expertise,” Mahlab said.
