Project Details

What We Need
  • Review of job descriptions, pay structure, internal value, competitive market data, non-monetary rewards and benefits
  • Recommendations for updating staff compensation and incentive plans
Additional Details

OAR is a fifty year old non profit with 30 - 35 employees. We are dedicated to providing fair, respectful, evidence based alternatives to incarceration for the citizens of central Virginia. We are challenged by budgetary constraints and historic policies when it comes to compensation. We need some fresh ideas for how to improve this aspect of our business. OAR is a close knit agency with a true family atmosphere. Our compensation plan should reflect how much we value our employees.

What We Have In Place
  • The Executive Director, Assistant Director and Fiscal/HR manager can provide historic and current information regarding our compensation plan.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $6,746 , allowing us to provide more for our very valued employees!

We experience fairly high turnover in a field that requires at least two years to become proficient at the job. Thus we are continuously training new staff who wind up moving on once they are accomplished in case management and the legal system. We believe that is at least partially due to the lack of advancement opportunities within the agency and the inflexible and low-paid salary structure we have in place.
