HANO is launching a campaign to identify and share the implications of DECENT WORK for Hawaii’s nonprofit sector.
We see Decent Work as broadly encompassing issues like:
- nonprofit salaries and benefits at all levels of employment
- diverse, equitable, and inclusive work opportunities and workplaces
- understanding and communicating the true cost of doing business and creating quality outcomes
- succession and the talent pipeline
- and much more
We will be looking for issues that are common across the state as well as issues unique to each island or county. Along the way, we are compiling resources on Decent Work-related issues. Please let us know if you have resources that we should add to this page.
