Not for profit


The not for profit sector is strong and complex and considered to be the third arm of the economy, after the corporate and public sectors. In Australia alone, the sector employs over 800,000 individuals (in addition to the thousands of volunteers) and has a capital expenditure of over $8 billion.

In a crowded and competitive world of fundraising and resourcing, Hay Group understands the challenges facing NFP leaders in sustaining and growing their organisation. We’ve helped many NFPs, locally and abroad, manage talent, create practical reward polices, develop leaders and build effective organisations.

Hay Group’s experience working with the NFP sector has found that many leaders demonstrate a unique set of characteristics that can be benefical to the private sector. They show strong collaboration and stakeholder management skills, and their passion, humility and patience are key differentiators.
