New Training Series on Nonprofit Compensation

Posted By James Stodd, JT Stodd & Associates, Friday, April 12, 2013

In today’s "no margin…no mission” environment it is critically important that nonprofit organizations get the most "bang” for each dollar spent on staff compensation. 

This is achieved by rewarding and retaining those who best contribute to attaining the organization’s mission while minimizing unnecessary fixed-cost and administrative overhead. 

This new series (to be held in both Baton Rouge and New Orleans) includes three modules, each approximately 90 minutes in length, designed to cover the gamut of compensation issues challenging nonprofits today.


MODULE ONE: This first module in the series will focus on the foundations of base pay/salary management programs and be of tremendous value to senior executives, HR leaders and those responsible for salary administration. The objective of this session will be to equip you with the necessary knowledge to establish, maintain and strategically alter your base pay/salary program to best achieve your nonprofit’s unique objectives regarding cost management, market competitiveness and equitable compensation amongst your workforce.

Baton Rouge, April 23, 10:30AM


New Orleans, April 25, 10:30 AM




This series of three workshops will be led by James T Stodd, SPHR who is the Principal and Managing Director of JT Stodd & Associates. Jim has over 30 years of experience in designing and managing compensation programs for nonprofit organizations. His experience includes serving with leading consulting firms such as Ernst & Young, LLP and the Hay Group as well as serving as the chief human resource officer of three large nonprofit organizations where he was responsible to the CEO and the Board for all compensation and employee benefit practices.
