Market assessments can help non-profit employers understand what attracts and motivates employees by asking them directly.
Through surveys, focus groups and other types of assessment, StepUp BC is engaging employees and volunteers in the non-profit sector and finding out what they think, what’s important to them, what challenges they face and how today’s employers can do a better job of supporting and developing their potential.
Our first market assessment on employee benefits and retirement savings in BC’s non-profit sector will be published early in 2014.
Along with salary, flexible work arrangements, learning and development opportunities, and many other workplace rewards, employee benefits are considered to play an important role in attracting and retaining talented people to the non-profit sector.
By surveying approximately 1,000 non-profit employees and supplementing the survey results with Labour Market Information, StepUp BC is exploring the relative importance that today’s non-profit employees place on benefits and retirement savings plans.
Survey results will help us make informed decisions about whether to introduce employment-based benefits for the non-profit sector, and will help non-profit leaders learn more about the needs and priorities of their current and future employees.
