New Salary Survey Goes Deep into Detail

The Federation of European & international associations based in Belgium (FAIB) has just published the results of its salary benchmark survey carried out with the support of its Board members and its associate member, DKW.

This survey is based on data gathered on the remuneration and the fringe benefits of associations’ permanent staff from 131 organisations. It covers ALL job categories, from top management to administrative support staff and will therefore serve as a useful guideline and tool for (international) non-profit associations (I)NPAs.

According to the executive summary of the survey, there were large variances in salary and benefits between organisations, much of which can often be explained by the type and size of the organisation and the average age of the employees. More specifically, the 13th month and luncheon vouchers are the most common benefits provided whereas company cars are quite rare. When it comes to Secretary Generals, with a slight majority for the male population and an average age of 50 years, there is a considerable difference for monthly salary according to the overall budget of the association.
