Survey Home

The NGO Local Pay survey covers the employers, jobs and countries that are relevant to the development community.


The NGO Local Pay surveys are a comprehensive source of data for organizations in the development community who want to manage their investment in pay for locally-engaged staff in a market-based, competitive and efficient manner. The surveys cover the countries where NGOs operate, the jobs they need to fill, the organizations with which they compete for talent; and report all the data you need to design and maintain a competitive compensation program.
