So, what does a CPO do exactly?
Our nonprofit organization has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade. As the number of employees grew, our internal processes were not keeping pace. We contracted Fortress and Flourish to prepare staff salary scales to create pay equity, pay transparency, and pay increase consistency. We also wanted to ensure that staff salaries were within industry ranges and that subsequent pay increases would be consistently applied throughout the organization.
The final report is exactly what we wanted – a helpful tool that we’ll use for a long time. It was a pleasure working with Candice. I was impressed with her knowledge of best practices and her ability to deliver such quality work on time!
