We all benefit from decent work. As employees, we excel in fair working conditions. As employers, we attract and retain high-calibre staff by offering good jobs. And as nonprofits, we achieve our mission to contribute to thriving communities while leading the way to a stronger, more resilient sector.

Through adopting decent work practices, your organization will be better able to meet your mission and contribute to thriving communities. And in doing so, you help build a stronger, more resilient nonprofit sector.

What is decent work?

Decent work means more than fair wages and benefits. It reflects a cultural shift that builds on the values that drive your work in your community. Decent workplaces are fair, stable and productive workplaces. Decent work means building a culture of equity and inclusion at work, and ensuring everyone’s voices are valued and heard. Decent work means acknowledging the highly gendered nature of the nonprofit sector’s workforce – and developing solutions that address women’s particular interests and concerns.
