The Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County (HSC) has released results of the 2022 Salary & Benefits Survey. HSC has published the survey approximately every three years since 1989.
Last conducted in 2018, the report contains the latest information about compensation and benefits for not-for-profit organizations in Tompkins County, NY. 77 agencies participated in this year’s survey, a 50% response rate.
The intent of this report is to provide information to help organizations create and maintain an effective compensation system that is in line with organizational objectives and is competitive in the market. It is not intended to provide compensation data for every position in every organization, but to provide information on select benchmark positions common to many.
In addition to salary, the report includes comparative information on benefits including paid time off, health insurance, retirement, life insurance and others. Moreover, the report provides insight into work force impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) activities, and emerging trends in hiring practices.
Overall, the results illustrate the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on recruitment, turnover and other work force related matters. COVID-19 continues to be high on the list of reasons why people have left their positions over the past year. The aging work force is presenting challenges as well. Retirement is the third highest reported reason for employee turnover. Moreover, almost 42 percent of responding organizations anticipate a retirement at the senior leadership level over the next two years.
The results confirm how workplaces have evolved, including remote and hybrid office models. 63% of organizations continue to work in a hybrid or all-remote work environment, which, research has shown, can positively influence employee recruitment.
The Human Services Coalition’s mission is to enhance the delivery of health and human services in Tompkins County and the region. HSC works to build sector capacity and foster collaboration among community based organizations. Human services planning convenes the Continuum of Care, provides professional development, training, and consulting services, and partners with the City of Ithaca and Tompkins County to review and recommend requests for local funding from community-based organizations. The Health Planning Council conducts mufti-disciplinary community health planning and offers health insurance navigation and health advocacy services. 2-1-1 Information and Referral operates the 2-1-1 call center, connecting individuals who are seeking support to resources and information that can help them meet their needs. It supports other service providers by serving as a primary vehicle for disseminating accurate and up-to-date information on community based programs and services.
