1013 Nonprofit

METHODOLOGY

EMPLOYEE SURVEY

The survey was voluntary and free of charge. Participating nonprofits had to employ at least 10 Oregon workers (and/or volunteers who worked an average of 20 or more hours per month) at the time of the survey. Organizations were categorized as small if they had fewer than 20 Oregon employees; medium if they employed 20-49; and large if they employed 50 or more in Oregon. For the 2013 survey more than 5,100 nonprofit workers rated their satisfaction with 159 organizations in 25 workplace qualities — five in each of the following categories:

  1. Work Environment: scheduling, diversity, family balance, teamwork, fun, technology, policies and procedures
  2. Management & Communications: treatment and feedback from supervisors, workplace communications, discipline for poor performance, rewards and acknowledgement for top performance
  3. Mission & Goals: progress of mission, trust in management and board, employee involvement in decisions, community support, workplace pride
  4. Career Development & Learning: on-the-job training, off-site education and training, growth opportunities, promotion and advancement, job goals and expectations
  5. Benefits & Compensation: adequacy and fairness of pay, health and wellness plan, retirement plan, paid time off and leave, opportunities for better pay and benefits

EMPLOYER BENEFITS SURVEY

Organization representatives answered about 50 questions covering a comprehensive set of benefits including health and wellness, time off, family-friendly policies, work scheduling, incentives, retirement plans and culture.

SCORING

The employee survey counted for 5/6 of a nonprofit’s score. For each organization, the average employee satisfaction rating was calculated in each of the five categories above on a scale of 0-100. The benefits survey was also scored on a 100-point scale, accounting for the remaining 1/6 of the overall score, resulting in a total possible score of 600.

Hello,
You're in the right article. It is displayed in 6 pages. If you click "Next," it will take you to the next page.

Alternatively, you could use the "article index." If you click "Top 34 Large Organizations," you will find that portion of the list. If you click, "Top 33 Medium Organizations," you will find that portion. And finally if you click "Top 33 Small Organizations," you will find the final portion of the list.

That is incorrect, the Nonprofit list is available for free, above, in 6 pages. You can choose to purchase the list for download in spreadsheet format. Purchases of the list packages include additional information and help support the magazine's research.
