Survey respondents project a further decrease in 2010 to 1.9 percent.
The Compensation Data Not-For-Profit 2009 survey results show pay increase budgets have fallen to 2.4 percent. With pay increase budgets down in 2009, survey respondents project a further decrease in 2010 to 1.9 percent. These numbers further reinforce predictions of little economic growth in the coming year.
“For many years, pay increase budgets were stagnate across all industries. The recent downturn is indicative of increased economic pressure,” said Amy Kaminski, manager of marketing programs for Compdata Surveys. “With layoffs commonplace, many organizations are working to keep current employees on staff, while keeping the organization afloat.”
The Compensation Data Not-For-Profit results found pay increase budgets were highest in Illinois at 3.2 percent, which was followed by organizations in Pennsylvania at 3.1 percent. Michigan had the lowest pay increase budget at 1.7 percent.
Pay increase budgets also vary slightly within the not-for-profit industry. The 2009 Compensation Data Not-For-Profit results showed associations had the highest pay increase budget, 3.3 percent. Churches and religious organizations had the lowest with 1.7 percent, according to the survey results.
