Our Personnel Committee (lead by an lawyer specializing in employment law) has been working this year in reviewing our employee handbook, org structure, and benefit plans. We have a draft of a salary structure and position ranges which we used the PANO (PA Assoc of Nonprofit Org) most recent salary survey to benchmark salary ranges, but want we'd like assistance with reviewing to ensure we don't have any implicit bias before using.
As part of our strategic plan, we are seeking ways to improve our infrastructure, including how to attract and retain talented employees who are committed to our mission. We have experienced fairly high turnover at the top level (Program and Development Director) for our 15-person staff with a budget of $1.4M.
Career Wardrobe is a nonprofit social enterprise that uses clothing and professional development to empower unemployed individuals to work. Since 1995, we have empowered more than 90,000 individuals as they made the often difficult transition to employment from poverty, domestic violence or after serving time in the judicial system. With offices in Philadelphia, Delaware and Bucks Counties, we assist 5,000 women and men annually.
The Wardrobe is the cornerstone of our program and provides professional clothing to individuals in transition. Job seekers can shop at no cost with a referral or for a small fee if they are not receiving government assistance. In Philadelphia, The Wardrobe is also a resale store, open to the public where savvy shoppers can find great deals on women's designer and contemporary clothing with all sales supporting our services.
Professional clothing from The Wardrobe is accessorized with professional development and job search support programs designed to help our customers not only get, but keep and advance in their new jobs.
