Building Community, Capacity, Competitiveness, and Confidence

Do you need to clarify your internal compensation and benefits packages and know how they compare to others in the local labor markets?
Is your agency one of the 75 participating in the NGO Local Pay surveys recently completed, in process, or about to be launched in Asia?
If not, why not?
Considering the complex issues in the region, there is no better time than now to deepen your understanding of your salary data and use it more effectively to make strategic decisions. Representatives from Birches Group – leaders in NGO pay data in developing markets – will hold a one-day NGO Rewards Conference in collaboration with People in Aid and InsideNGO on 26 April 2012 in Bangkok. This will give managers in the humanitarian and development assistance sector with responsibilities for the management of reward insights into the uses of NGO Local Pay surveys, understanding of the labor market intelligence they contain, and access to professional networking and development in order to build their capacity to act as a strategic partner in their organizations.
The aims of the one-day event are to help you:
- Appreciate the benefits of participating in the salary surveys annually
- Understand the results of your agency salary surveys
- Comprehend compensation and benefits trends in the region
- Learn how to better manage rewards in your organization
- Building of an NGO Local Pay “survey community” for knowledge-sharing, networking, and professional development
- Use NGO Local Pay surveys for good management of reward in your organizations
- Build skills and capacity as a professional manager of reward
Birches Group, InsideNGO and People In Aid held a similar event in Nairobi in November 2011 and over 45 people attended from over 25 NGOs, including:
- Action Contre la Faim
- Christian Aid
- Catholic Relief Services
- Danish Refugee Council
- International Rescue Committee
- Oxfam GB
- Plan International

If you would like to organize a one-to-one meeting with the Birches team members, please contact Ms. Kaye Avellana directly by using the Contact Us form.
