The Burden of Care -  Addressing Challenges in Employment in the Nonprofit Sector with Laura McDonough and Steven Ayer

 

 

The Burden of Care -  Addressing Challenges in Employment in the Nonprofit SectorIn a study from the Environics Institute, Future Skills Centre, and Diversity Institute, findings showed that nonprofit sector workers are less satisfied with their jobs than workers in either the public or private sectors. This dissatisfaction is exacerbated by lower salaries, precarious employment, and part-time contracts - just a few of the challenges facing today’s sector workers.

Joining us on this episode are Laura McDonough, Associate Director, Insights & Knowledge Mobilization at the Future Skills Centre, and Steven Ayer, President and Founder of Common Good Strategies, and the author of the report. Together, we further explore the findings of the report and discuss the solutions to improving the situations of nonprofit workers.
