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
These deliverables are exactly what we need. We have begun to do this on our own, but found that we need expert help. We would like to work with someone who has experience doing this kind of project in a union context.
What We Have In Place
- We have an excellent HR Director who has already compiled the data, and a strong team (CEO, HR Director and Operations Director) who have worked together on setting up this project and have identified some specific questions that need to be addressed. This team is very organized and responsible, and very interested!
How This Will Help
This project will save us $6,746 , allowing us to put more resources toward providing services that are not covered by our contracts, including diapers for families with infants, transportation for people to medical appointments, etc.
As we work on equity, one of our principle goals is to make sure that the we have a compensation structure that accurately reflects the differences between different jobs. We also have a union, and we would like to be able to work with them to develop an agreement that is transparent and clear to union members regarding job grades.
About The Org
Tapestry is a community-based non-profit organization providing compassionate health care, support services, and education to Western Massachusetts. We believe that high-quality care should be accessible to everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation or income.
At Tapestry, everyone has a safe space to receive the care they need, without fear of judgment or stigma. When you come to us for services, you pay based on what you can afford, and no one is ever turned away.
What We Do
Tapestry was founded in 1973 to provide healthcare to people whose access to it is blocked by the stigma. In the 1970s this was sexual and reproductive health, in the 80s we expanded to provide services for people at risk of HIV/AIDS, and in the 90s our HIV work grew to encompass syringe access services, and we continue to expand our programs to help people who use drugs. We also have a WIC program that provides food and nutrition to young families in our area.
