Nonprofits are reporting difficulty with hiring and retaining talent. As government and for-profit employers raise salaries and offer benefits and signing bonuses, nonprofits struggle to compete. The nonprofit sector is recovering at a slower rate than for-profit according to recent information shared in a New York Times article, as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP) is looking for data and stories from our SWPA region to be able to share how workforce challenges are impacting local nonprofits. Your input will help us tell this important story to elected officials at the local and state levels, alongside data that demonstrates the economic impact of a healthy nonprofit sector since 16% of the Pennsylvania workforce is employed by nonprofit organizations. Respond to the survey here.
GPNP Director, Colleen Young, recently spoke with WESA about this critical topic – listen to the interview and read the WESA article here. Please email GPNP (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject: GPNP Workforce Survey if you have any questions or would prefer to discuss your story directly.
Thank you for your time and testimonials!
