Nonprofit Benefits Forum

In this competitive talent market, offering compelling benefits is not just an HR strategy, its critical to mission achievement. If you’re running a nonprofit, providing the benefits people want can be the difference-maker in retaining top talent, and your talent is critical to creating impact. Many nonprofits do not have HR staff and most nonprofits struggle with the rising complexity and cost of benefit programs.

The Nonprofit Benefits Forum will provide 2019 benchmarking data on benefit offerings among nonprofits, the latest information on health and retirement options and strategies, as well as strategies to amp up your benefits with no or low cost solutions.

In addition to the content, this event will offer participants a free benefits benchmarking report as well as a free GA Nonprofit compensation report; discounts on job postings from WorkforGood.org; and the opportunity to speak with curbside consultants who will provide customized benefits advice.

The 2019 Nonprofit Benefits Benchmarking Study

How competitive are your organization’s benefits? Work for Good will present the Nonprofit Benefits Benchmarking Study, a national study of benefit offerings within nonprofits. This presentation will help participants understand how their own benefit programs compare to their peers by providing comparative data on health benefits, retirement plans and auxiliary benefits. This data highlights the prevalence of benefit offerings by nonprofit size, and also details specific employer costs and contribution levels, employer trends and projections for future offerings. Participants will be provided with a link to the report for their use.

Presenter: Karen Beavor


Nonprofit Retirement Plan Options & Strategies

Other than health coverage, nonprofit employees rank retirement programs as their most highly valued employer benefit offering. In a recent benefit study, GCN found that many nonprofit employers do not offer competitive retirement programs if they offer them at all. This session will present employer strategies to create valuable and affordable retirement plan options that drive retention and competitiveness.

Presenter: Mutual of America


Health Benefit Options for Mid-size to Small Employers

The most valued employer benefit is health insurance and it is also the #1 HR struggle among small and midsized employers. There are options to create employer sponsored health plans that won’t break the bank for you or your employees. This session will discuss current trends in employer sponsored health plan strategies and will present specific tactics to lower costs and increase employee value and satisfaction.

Presenter: Nonprofit Resource Center Services


Mission Money: A free employer benefit offering financial wellness resources to nonprofit staff

Studies show that financial stress is a leading cause of productivity decline at work. Employers have begun to combat this by offering financial wellness resources, but they are often fee-based. Recognizing the need, GCN has developed Mission Money, a free financial wellness tool for nonprofit employers large and small. This session will introduce the tool and discuss how nonprofits can drive employee loyalty and positive culture by building awareness of these resources among employees.

Presenter: Mission:Money


Boosting your Benefits Program with Free or Low Cost Offerings that Drive Employee Value

Think that health and retirement are the only types of benefits employees value? Think again. Most employees want to create a benefits plan specific to their needs and those needs are often driven by age. This session will present an array of no or low cost options that employers can offer alongside health and retirement to amp up the competitiveness of their benefit offerings.

Presenter: Work for Good


Recruitment Positioning for a Competitive Talent Market

The current marketplace for nonprofit talent is incredibly competitive and it is more important than ever that your organization positions itself appropriately. This session will help you understand what new talent is looking for in an employer; how to create a competitive hiring brand that drives applicant interest; how to communicate the benefits of your purpose and mission; and how to position your opportunity and benefits to compete for the best talent.
