Global salary survey for NGOs

2 min read

The only survey of its kind, LiNGO provides a robust, cost-effective source for the data global non-governmental organizations (NGOs) need in each country to maintain competitive compensation policies and practices that will help attract, retain and motivate the people they need to achieve their missions.

In 2008, LiNGO covered more than 20 countries as prioritized by leading international NGOs and more than 90 organizations participated. Expanding on the success of last year’s effort, and responding to the continued demand for this type of information, the LiNGO collaborators are broadening the scope of the 2009-10 surveys to include up to 140 countries.

“This report is the answer for organizations seeking a salary survey which is conducted within the NGO sector by experts who understand the industry… The report is easy to understand and interpret, and gives a realistic picture for how we can align the benefits of our staff for what the market is providing,” said Dorcas Wainaina, regional HR manager, Africa Malaria Consortium.

“This year’s LiNGO surveys come at a time when local compensation practices around the world should be looked at closely,” said Curtis Grund, vice president, ORC Worldwide. “The economy continues to impact all areas of business, especially NGOs, and especially the countries in which NGOs operate. Through this survey, we look to provide relevant intelligence to inform the decisions NGOs will have to make to set and manage local staff salaries and benefits in these difficult times, regardless of their location.”

Participating organizations in the LiNGO surveys will help create an essential, unique database of pay information from global NGOs. NGOs can use the information gathered to:

• Gain an in-depth understanding of local market human resource practice,
• Simplify their compensation management by reference to one comprehensive survey that covers multiple job roles,
• Benefit from proven survey methodology designed for developing country markets and applied consistently in every country, and
• Be part of a group where collective buying power ensures robust data participation and an overall savings of over 40 percent off the regular cost of benchmarking surveys.
