Reward & Incentive Programs

Nonprofit organizations are well known for their challenging jobs, impactful opportunities and amazing staff. While the possibilities are endless, long hours, complex situations and problems, and limited resources are part of our daily routines. And anyone working in our sector knows that, while the work is wonderfully rewarding and often very inspiring, the compensation can be, well, quite disappointing. With all the important work that needs to be done, and despite the limitations of nonprofit budgets, it is critical that managers and supervisors reward their employees and volunteers for all the hard work that they do.

The benefits of an effectively designed and implemented reward and recognition program are well established. When staff feel appreciated for their efforts, productivity increases, turnover is reduced, and staff are more engaged, creative and innovative. These all impact the organization’s ability to provide services, as well as the financials. But knowing where to start, what to include and how to pay for even the simplest rewards can be daunting.

  • Reasons and ways Recognition and Reward Programs make good sense
