Total Compensation

A charity employee’s total compensation package refers to all of the monetary elements that a charity may use to attract and retain its staff members. While base pay is certainly an important element, a staff member’s total compensation package may also include things like vacation entitlements, employer matched savings plans, and employer subsidized gym memberships.

While monetary incentives have been shown to be relatively short-term motivators, it is critical that charities pay fairly so that compensation is not a distraction that leads to disengagement or employee turnover.
