Compensation Philosophy

At Evident Change, we put people first. We understand that our people are our organization’s most important asset in transforming social systems. We want to attract and retain a talented, diverse workforce who will give it all they’ve got.

Evident Change treats employees equitably within our compensation structure. When making hiring and compensation decisions, we look at similar positions within our organization and at other organizations to ensure equity. We believe in recognizing excellence, which is why we reward exemplary job performance. We also value the breadth of knowledge, skills, and abilities that our staff bring to the organization, which includes expertise that comes from having direct, lived experience with the systems we work with.

Our compensation packages include both salary and benefits.

Salary: We strive to maintain competitive salaries that stand out in the nonprofit sector. Working at Evident Change also offers intangible rewards that are hard to find in other workplaces.

Benefits: Evident Change’s benefits package includes health, vision, and dental insurance; paid vacation, holiday, and sick leave; life insurance; short-term and long-term disability insurance; retirement plans; and more.

Our commitment to employees goes beyond compensation. Evident Change supports employees’ emotional and physical health as well as their professional growth. To ensure that employees’ jobs fit well with their lives and goals, we offer flexible and remote work options, access to free and confidential support programs, and paid professional development and training.

Moreover, we strive to create an inclusive and fun organizational culture. We actively welcome people of color, LGTBQ people, and people with disabilities. Racial equity work is part of everyone’s job, and we create gathering and support spaces for employees of color. We have casual child- and dog-friendly offices, virtual and in-person opportunities to socialize, and lots of laughter and celebration.

Evident Change employees work together to address complex challenges, applying their expertise and experience to create effective and equitable systems for all. The impact our work has on people’s lives is the benefit we’re proudest of, one that can only be found at Evident Change.
