Are You Among the Best Nonprofits to Work For?

NPT 2014 Best Nonprofits to work for

Are You Among the Best Nonprofits to Work for?

Here’s an opportunity to showcase the excellence of your nonprofit as a workplace.  We know of the great things you do for constituents and the community – but you probably do great things for your employees as well.

Here’s a brief description of eligibility and the assessment process, for complete information visit the website:

To be eligible for consideration, nonprofits must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year
  • Must be a nonprofit organization with 501 (c) 3 status*
  • Have a facility in the United States
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees in the United States**
  • An organization may enter as a group of nonprofits or as an individual organization as long as each participating organization is a separate legal entity (separate subsidiary).  Branch offices may not enter separately from their parent nonprofit unless they are separate legal entities.

The assessment is a two-part process designed to gather detailed data about each participating nonprofit.  In part one, the employer completes a questionnaire and in part two, employees of the nonprofit complete an employee survey.

The collected information from the two instruments will be combined to produce a detailed set of data enabling the analysts to determine the strengths and opportunities of the participating nonprofits.

The registration deadline is October 11, 2013.
