Jobseekers in Michigan may want to consider careers in the nonprofit sector.

This year, about 45 percent of nonprofits throughout the state said they plan to hire, according to the 2017-2018 Compensation and Benefits Report from the Lansing-based Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA). Another 53 percent of nonprofits have no plans to hire additional staff, while 1.6 percent indicated that they were planning layoffs.

Bill Gesaman, strategic growth officer for the MNA, said layoffs likely are due to shifts in societal needs.

The report includes detailed compensation and benefits information for 74 full-time and part-time job positions including chief executive officer, development director and receptionist. It is based on responses from 323 nonprofit organizations from 53 Michigan counties.

“One of the main priorities of this report is to help nonprofits attract and retain quality employees who can help drive their mission,” Gesaman said. “Nonprofits can use it to rationalize compensation to their board. The report contains benchmarks which show that a nonprofit may either be ahead or behind in specific areas of compensation and benefits. This allows nonprofits in all regions of Michigan to be more competitive.”
