2016 Salary & Fringe Benefit Survey Summary Report available for purchase

The 2016 Salary & Fringe Benefit Survey Summary Report was mailed on September 30, 2016, to each Federation member agency representative and HR director, as per Executive Committee policy. It is available for purchase by other interested parties.

Data in this 2016 report was provided by 50 private, nonprofit human service agencies across Michigan. The Salaries section summarizes over 8,600 actual hourly wages reported. All report information is displayed in aggregate and in two subsets to permit a closer comparison among similarly sized organizations—agencies with annual budgets less than $6 million and agencies with annual budgets more than $6 million. When fewer than five data items were reported for a particular survey element, the information is not displayed, in keeping with guidelines of the federal Sherman Antitrust Act.

Questions regarding the survey should be directed to Rose Homa, rose@michfed.org. Many thanks to those who invested their time and energy completing this survey; you’ve made this an especially valuable resource for yourselves and your colleagues!

To purchase the 2016 report, the following prices apply: $150 for Federation Members and Corporate Sponsors; $200 for non-participating non-Federation entities.

Adoptive couples are invited to participate in MSU research study

sswlogogreentrans.jpgAdoptive couples, please consider participating in a research study involving post-adoptive couples. This project is part of a multi-year “Strengthening Marriages and the Well-Being of Children” federal grant, which the Michigan State University School of Social Work received from the Children’s Bureau in Washington DC. Data from the survey will be used to inform development of a marriage curriculum for adoptive parents.

Your involvement is totally voluntary, and your response is confidential to the fullest extent of the law. Several protocols are in place to protect the confidentiality and rights of all participants. Please review both the cover letter and Informed Consent Document prior to downloading and printing the questionnaire.

We thank you in advance for your valuable input.

Special note: The 2009 survey is four pages shorter than the one conducted in 2008. If you completed the 2008 survey, we thank you very much. If you chose not to participate at that time, we hope you will consider this new opportunity.

Training Interest Survey open through May 31st

A special Training Interest Survey 2009 has been designed to capture the full scope of training needs of individuals and organizations serving the needs of Michigan’s vulnerable children and families. Click here to participate now!

We estimate 5-10 minutes will be needed to complete the survey. All responses received by June 1, 2009, will be compiled, summarized and shared with Federation member organizations. Individual survey responses will be kept confidential and will not be shared in any way other than summary form. We anticipate reporting the results with Federation member organizations this summer. Membership in the Federation is not required for participation! Others who participate will receive notices of all training opportunities offered to the field based on these results (unless you ask us not to send these to you).

We urge you to publicize this survey with as many individuals affiliated with your agency and your colleagues as is practical — salaried, hourly and contractual staff; consultants; adoptive, foster and kinship parents; board members and other volunteers.

Special Benefit for Federation Full Member Organizations: If requested by a Federation member agency CEO, a summary data report specific to that agency can be generated and provided to assist that agency in meeting its unique training needs and mission, as well as fulfill one of the important standards set by accrediting bodies related to staff training. Again, no individuals’ names will be identified in the agency summary report. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this project!

A copy of the 2008 report is available to non-participating non-members for $150; $100 for Affiliate and Individual Federation members.
