"Before you hire a lawyer to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim in Alabama please call us at 800-714-0303-so we can put you in contact with Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste.”

— Alabama Mesothelioma Victims Center

MONTGOMERY , ALABAMA , USA, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Alabama Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the KVO law firm to assist a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma in Alabama to ensure they receive the very best possible financial compensation results.

"What most people with mesothelioma or their family members do not understand is that if they impulsively hire a local car accident attorney or a law firm that does not know what they are doing-the mistake could cost the individual with mesothelioma or their family. Before you hire a lawyer to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim for a US Navy Veteran in Alabama please call us at 800-714-0303-so we can put you in direct contact with attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-or like we refer to them KVO." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Alabama Mesothelioma Victims Center is passionate about making certain a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma anywhere in Alabama receives the very best possible financial compensation results. To ensure the best mesothelioma compensation settlement happens they have created a free service the call the list. The list documents how, where and when a person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos-and it is this incredibly important information that is the mesothelioma compensation claim as they would like to discuss at 800-714-0303. https://Alabama.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Alabama Mesothelioma Victims Center also wants to emphasize their services are available statewide for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in Alabama in any community including Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Huntsville, or Tuscaloosa. https://Alabama.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible treatment options in Alabama we strongly recommend the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital:

* The University of Alabama’s Comprehensive Cancer Center in Birmingham. http://www3.ccc.uab.edu/

According to the US Center for Disease Control the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year between 2500, and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.

According to the CDC the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. Mesothelioma also happens in New Mexico. However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma could live in any state including Alabama. www.karstvonoiste.com/

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Alabama include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing, or industrial workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com/

Marty Irby: USDA's Runaway Checkoffs Should Serve Family Farmers, Not Bankrupt Them

Dairy Checkoffs Gaming the System

Dairy Checkoffs Gaming the System

Animal Wellness Action Executive Director Marty Irby

Animal Wellness Action Executive Director Marty Irby

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — USDA's Runaway Checkoffs Should Serve Family Farmers, Not Bankrupt Them

By Marty Irby

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue’s surprisingly divisive message to dairy farmers: Go big or go home.

"In America, the big get bigger and the small go out," Perdue said after an appearance at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin in October. "I don't think in America we, for any small business, we have a guaranteed income or guaranteed profitability."

In that moment, the American family dairy farmer felt put out to pasture.

The backlash from small dairy producers across America has been fierce, and dairy farmers insist they are not giving up their livelihood without a fight, according to Mike Eby, a family farmer and the chairman of the National Dairy Producers’ Organization who lives in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Dairy farmers are grappling with a wide array of problems: milk prices continue to decline; foreclosures, bankruptcies, and suicide rates are on the rise; and Mother Nature has taken her toll, while the plant-based beverage sector continues to gain market share.

It’s been a tough few years for family farmers in the dairy business, but most folks don’t really understand the root of the problem. Big Agriculture is sucking up the hard-earned dollars of family farmers and using those funds to lobby against the interests of the people it purports to represent.

To be precise, I am writing about Big Ag’s big secret — a series of USDA checkoff programs for beef, pork, dairy, and other commodities. Major trade associations divert checkoff dollars that by law are restricted to commodity marketing programs and research and instead use a large share of the money for salaries, office operations, and lobbying. And that means lobbying for policies that often hurt family farmers.

Report after report has consistently revealed re-routing of these resources year after year under both Republican and Democrat Administrations.

But there is cause for optimism with the introduction of H.R. 5563 by U.S. Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) in the House last week, the Opportunities for Fairness in Farming (OFF) Act. The measure's a companion to S. 935 introduced in 2019 by U.S. Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) – an unlikely group of allies.

The OFF Act doesn’t seek to abolish the checkoff programs, as Big Ag beneficiaries have misrepresented – but would instead create transparency and accountability and prohibit checkoff funds from being used for lobbying. The bill also prohibits funds from being used to pay for staff and programs of trade associations that favor multi-national corporations and push small farmers out of business.

Right now, funds from checkoff programs benefit trade associations that promote frightening levels of consolidation within agriculture, and that does nothing to help the family farmers forced to pay into the program. They pushed for the repeal of Country of Origin Labeling (COOL), for dissolution of programs to prevent price-fixing at packing houses, and repeal of organic labeling provisions that would allow family farmers a value-added option for their products. As a result, the beef you see labeled as “Made in the USA” may have been produced in South America and merely packaged in the USA.

The effort for checkoff reform is supported by more than 80 farm organizations, representing over 250,000 family farmers and ranchers, alongside groups like the Heritage Foundation, National Farmers Union, R Street, Organization for Competitive Markets, American Grassfed Association, and even the National Taxpayers Union. We're all calling on Congress to take a second look — and hold Congressional hearings on the OFF Act to open the checkoff books to the public.

Let us be reminded of what President Abraham Lincoln said in 1864, two and a half years after he established the Agency, in what was his final address to the Congress: "The Agricultural Department, under the supervision of its present energetic and faithful head, is rapidly commending itself to the great and vital interest it was created to advance. It is precisely the people's Department, in which they feel more directly concerned than in any other. I commend it to the continued attention and fostering care of Congress."

That’s clearly not the USDA we see today, and that’s clearly not the USDA that Big Ag wants in Washington. If Big Ag fights against a simple hearing on the matter, it makes you wonder what the checkoffs have to hide.

Marty Irby is the executive director at Animal Wellness Action in Washington, D.C. who works with farmers to promote more humane and sustainable agriculture across America and was named as one of The Hill's Top Lobbyists for 2019.

Captive and Wild Bears Throughout the World Killed for Bladders and Bile

We shouldn’t be killing rhinos for their horns, elephants for their tusks, or bears for their bladders.”

— Wayne Pacelle, founder of Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Animal Wellness Action, and the Animal Wellness Foundation lauded U.S. Senators John Kennedy, R-La., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., for introducing legislation to stop the exploitation of bears, seeking to end the killing of the animals for their gall bladders. The Bear Protection Act is a companion bill to H.R. 2264, introduced in 2019 by U.S. Representatives Ted Lieu, D-Calif.; Rodney Davis, R-Ill., Ann Kuster, D-N.H., and Glenn Thompson, R-Penn in 2019.

Bear gall bladders are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and in China, South Korea, and Vietnam, there are bear “farms” where the animals are housed in concrete pits and “milked” for their bile, in demonstrably inhumane conditions. Wild bears, including in North America, are also known to be poached just for their gall bladders. The Bear Protection Act would forbid any interstate transport or sales of bear galls and other viscera and forbid any imports or exports of these body parts. There are eight species of bears in the world, and once gall bladders are extracted from the body of a bear, they are visually indistinguishable in terms of species type.

“We shouldn’t be killing rhinos for their horns, elephants for their tusks, or bears for their bladders,” said Wayne Pacelle, founder of Animal Wellness Action. “Wildlife trafficking is one of the greatest threats to rare species throughout the world, and the Bear Protection Act is a lever to protect several species of bears from reckless and warranted commerce in their parts. We are grateful to Senators Kennedy and Booker for helping to lead this fight for bears.”

“For years, legal loopholes have allowed the abuse and trade of wild bears to continue,” said U.S. Senator John Kennedy. “I’m proud to partner with my friend Senator Booker to help prevent the slaughter and sale of innocent creatures through a commonsense solution.” Louisiana has a subspecies called the Louisiana black bear, and the populations are small and fairly isolated.

“North American black bears are under threat from poachers and smugglers who supply the global trade in bear parts and products,” U.S. Senator Cory Booker said. “This bipartisan legislation will help to conserve bears, deter bear poaching, and facilitate prosecution of illegal bear parts traders.”

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., introduced the Bear Protection Act two decades ago and his bill passed the Senate twice by Unanimous Consent, but the measures were not acted upon by the House. U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva D-Ariz., chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, previously introduced this legislation in the 111th Congress.

Across the United States, bears and cubs are killed by poachers who take only their gallbladders, and sometimes their paws, leaving the rest of the bear behind. The gallbladders are easy to conceal and attract a high price (exceeding $1,000 per gallbladder) due to their use in some traditional Chinese medicine. The trade is heavily centralized in China and South Korea, where bears are held captive, crowded with other bears in entirely unnatural circumstances, and drained of bile with the use of an invasive tube inserted into their bodies. Bears are kept in small cages for years with a tube inserted directly into their gallbladder to obtain bile, often until the bear dies from the effects of this invasive and dangerous process. Circumstances for wild Asian bear are particularly perilous, while other species of bears throughout the world face threats from the trade in their parts and the effects of other human activities.

There are 40 states have laws on the books to address this trade, revealing the emerging consensus to address this problem. The Bear Protection Act is needed to make a global statement about the trade from the United States, and to address gaps or inconsistencies in state laws. A trafficker in Colorado may face up to three years in prison and a $100,000 fine, while a trafficker in Kentucky may receive only a $100 fine. Federal sentencing guidelines dictate that the market value of the item must be at least $350 for a prosecution under the federal Lacey Act, but the courts attribute the value of a gallbladder to only $280.

Nick Herle, Pilot and CEO, Inspires Future Generations to Pursue Aviation Careers

Niclas Herle

SARASTOA, FL, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Niclas “Nick” Herle, founder and CEO of Heli Aviation Florida, LLC, Heli Aviation Holding, LLC, Heli Aviation Holding II, LLC, Diamond Helicopters, LLC, and AeroParts.com, LLC, is a German-American entrepreneur and innovator. He believes strongly that every person can make a difference in the world and seeks to do so himself by helping and inspiring others. In particular, Nick Herle loves teaching kids about helicopters as aviation provides an apt avenue for kids to “think outside the confines of everyday life.”

Nick Herle frequently participates in and school, community, and youth-centered events in Florida and elsewhere. He hopes to encourage kids to pursue their passion, use their imagination, and dream big. He also aims to teach kids about aviation specifically, exposing them to the vast promise and potential of the industry today and in the future.

Born in Germany, Nick Herle spent his childhood in Baden-Baden in the Black Forest in Baden-Wuerttemberg. Even back then, the young innovator saw things from a different perspective than many of his peers. By the time he was a teen, he was already getting started on his professional ventures. He founded Herle Funkservice GmbH in 2005, which provided radio packages for governmental agencies and private entities.

He sold his first company in 2011, by which point he was heavily involved in the German Red Cross, serving as a Battalion Chief for the local crisis response unit. While still working in telecommunications, he started to venture into aviation, recognizing helicopters played a vital role in crisis response. He earned his pilot license at age 17 and quickly decided to relocate to the United States, where more aviation opportunities were available.

With a degree in Business Economics, his pilot’s license, and now years of experience assisting in various missions and enterprises from search and rescue to firefighting and private and business aviation ventures, Nick Herle is the ideal candidate to empower and encourage future generations to take the helm and forge their own path in life.

"Our success is directly related to our clarity and honesty about who we are, who we're not, where we want to go, and how we're going to get there,” Nick Herle said on his website. “No matter your life's purpose, do it because it's right, not because it's right for your resume.”

BarberWind Turbines, LLC Launches Demonstration Project in Concordia, Kansas, signs Power Purchase Agreement with Sunflower Electric Power Corporation.

GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — BarberWind Turbines LLC, a revolutionary wind technology company, is excited to announce that they have selected Concordia, Kansas as the demonstration site for their second-generation mid-sized wind turbine. The project will be located at Route 81 and Milo Road, about seven miles south of Concordia town center. BarberWind Turbines has leased three acres of land from a local farming family for 25 years.

BarberWind Turbines has selected Concordia Technologies, LLC to be the manufacturer and fabricator of their innovative turbine design which has been certified by DNV GL. Locating the demonstration site close to the factory will expedite the project and allow daily, in person coordination, between BWT site engineers and factory personnel.

The Power Purchase Agreement has been negotiated with Sunflower Electric Power Corporation. The interconnect will be executed with Prairie Land Electric Cooperative.

“We wanted our demonstration turbine to be located within driving distance of the factory to speed up the installation of the turbine”, said Jerry Barber, Inventor and chairman of the board. “We are grateful to Prairie Land and Sunflower for working with us to make this possible.”

“The demonstration project will showcase the innovative technology of the BWT800kW which uses 1,280 blades on 64 spokes instead of the traditional trio of blades that are typically over 100 feet long each. The smaller blades act as airfoils, automatically customizing their pitch to capture a greater percentage of available wind, making this turbine more efficient than other turbines of its size”, said Debbie O’Hara, CMO. “It’s the perfect solution for micro-grid and other distributed energy applications.”

BarberWind Turbines broke ground at the site in December 2019. "After nine years in development, we are excited to have reached this milestone, " said Tammy Barber, Owner and COO for BarberWind Turbines. "We are fortunate to be working with such progressive people as we've found in Concordia."

###

ABOUT THE BARBERWIND 800kW TURBINE
The transformational BarberWind Turbines 800kW wind turbine has been designed for microgrid, stand alone and other distributed generation applications especially those systems currently dependent on diesel fuel such as the ones on islands, farms and ranches. The design, which has been certified by DNV GL, includes a built-in lifting system so the turbine can be erected without an expensive crane, can be hinged down during the approach of severe weather or a hurricane, and can survive a Cat. 5 (155mph) when lowered. The BWT800kW can be shipped in standard containers and is forecast to be the most economical renewable energy solution in the world.

Without Checkoff Reform, Agribusiness Will Continue to Reap Hundreds of Millions to Finance Lobbying Against Animals

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Without Checkoff Reform, Agribusiness Trade Groups Will Continue to Reap Hundreds of Millions to Finance Political and Lobbying Campaigns Against Animal Welfare

By Wayne Pacelle

Consumer choice. What is more apple pie than that? We don’t even think about it. Whether clothes, cars, or cosmetics, we pick the brand and shop for the deal.

It’s called the free market, and in elementary school we learn that the strength of our economic system is based on the interplay between competition and choice.

But most kids never get the lesson on the exceptions to free market principles. When it comes to Big Meat and Big Dairy, the free market is a fiction. The system is rigged.

Trade groups representing large-scale animal agribusiness – which already harvest a dizzying number of government subsidies – give themselves an added boost by gaming the system and getting government money to fund their trade associations.

It’s done through a de facto tax to serve their own purposes, working against the interests of consumers.

This tax is levied on hard-working and often struggling farmers and ranchers. And for consumers, well, they pay for it with every purchase at the meat counter or dairy case.

It’s called a USDA Commodity Checkoff Program, and like any tax, no rancher, farmer, or consumer, has the choice to opt out. The difference, though, is that the public doesn’t elect those who decide where and how to spend these millions of check-off tax money. It’s a special-interest feast, with agribusiness officials controlling every decision from farrow to finish.

U.S. Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., in introducing the Opportunities for Fairness in Farming (OFF) Act last week, said, “Family farmers should not be forced to pay into organizations that sometimes lobby against their own interests and threaten animal welfare.” Titus’ bill. H.R. 5563, mirrors the Senate version of the OFF Act, introduced in 2019 by U.S. Senators Mike Lee, R-Utah, Cory Booker, D-N.J., Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. Perhaps the first time that particular Senate quartet has been singing from the same sheet of music, their collective aim is to bring much needed transparency and accountability to the federal government’s commodity checkoff programs.

Agriculture trade groups, such as the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), use millions from these checkoff programs for lobbying to fight sensible farm animal welfare policies, country-of-origin labeling (COOL) standards, clean air and water rules, and even the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms. Rank-and-file farmers and consumers aren’t supposed to be financing this dirty work, but that’s exactly what’s happening.

Sensible family farmers concerned about the proper treatment of animals in their care recoil when they learn the money is spent to undercut their values. Principled lawmakers in Congress don’t like it because it has become a camouflaged lobbying slush fund for agribusiness. And of course, members of the public are livid to learn that they are ultimately paying the bill for this pork-barrel scheme.

Just at the time when consumer concerns about how and where their food is produced are rising, the checkoff program becomes a powerful force for meat-industry conformity.

Records show that industry appointees of the Board dreamed up a way around prohibitions on the use of checkoff funds to finance the operations of the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), a private trade association and the industry’s lobbying arm.

Remember the slogan “Pork: The Other White Meat.” Well, that was an advertising campaign originally paid for by the checkoff-financed Pork Board, which allowed the private trade association to use it at no cost. Then, after the trade association tired of the campaign – exhausting its market value, if you will – the Pork Board licensed it for use (which never really occurred) at a preposterously overinflated price.

The head of the Board wrote in an uncovered email: “that should get NPPC the money it needs for the next four years.” He was right about that, but off on the timeline. It turned into a 20-year sweetheart deal.

That’s right, for two decades checkoff dollars started flowing to the industry’s lobbyists. How many dollars? Well, $60 million actually, with the funds paid out annually in $3 million installments.

Hang on, it gets crazier. This annual misuse of checkoff dollars has continued even after a referendum by America’s hog farmers in 2000 to eliminate the checkoff entirely.

How could that be? The U.S. Department of Agriculture chose to ignore the results of this election. As if to say, who are pig farmers to decide which “tax” levies they pay?

The chicken industry has never had a checkoff program, and despite that, consumption of drumsticks and breasts has surged for the last 30 years, especially compared to beef, pork, and dairy. This comparison gives us plenty of evidence that the checkoff program hasn’t even fulfilled its original purpose of lifting sales, despite hundreds of millions flowing to the industry chieftains every year.

In the end, farmers pay the tax, but get precious little in return. The lobby trade groups, in the end, are the ones who get the keys to the bank.

Eliot Pargament Explains How to Prevent Laminitis in Horses

Eliot Pargament

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eliot Pargament is a farrier and business owner. Presently, Eliot Pargament provides his services to those in and around Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. He can be reached at (703) 727-5281, or mingusman14@gmail.com.

A horse’s feet may not be their most beautiful feature, but they are one of the most essential. Whether you’re an amateur rider or professional equestrian, Eliot Pargament, a Certified Farrier and graduate of Tucson School of Horseshoeing, advises that inspecting and cleaning a horse’s feet on at least a daily basis is crucial. One reason, he said, is it provides an opportunity to check for serious conditions like laminitis.

What Is Laminitis?

Laminitis is inflammation in the laminae in the horse’s foot. It can present in any feet but is most common in the front feet, and is caused by temporary or long-term disrupted blood flow. The laminae secure the coffin bone to the hoof wall. As in humans, chronic inflammation can permanently weaken the structures and the bond between the wall and bone. Untreated, Eliot Pargament warns the bone and hoof wall can separate, resulting in a displaced coffin bone which can eventually penetrate the sole. The condition is sometimes confused with founder but the two are not interchangeable. Founder is a long-term condition associated with a rotated coffin bone, while laminitis is an acute incident.

What Causes Laminitis?

Many factors can cause laminitis, some of which are preventable and others of which are not. Eliot Pargament said some breeds, like Morgans, donkeys, and ponies, are naturally predisposed to the condition. However, you can reduce the risk. Some risk factors include high fever, severe colic, a retained placenta after foaling, bedding made with black walnut shavings, Potomac Horse Fever, various foot diseases, digestive upsets, sudden access to large amounts of lush foliage (also known as “grass founder”), blood poisoning (such as that from chemicals used to treat plants), and excessive weight-bearing on one leg. Being overweight or sustaining trauma to the foot can also cause laminitis.

Signs & Symptoms

When cleaning your horse’s feet, keep an eye out for potential signs of laminitis or other issues. These include warm feet or a faster-than-usual digital pulse, as well as rings in the hoof wall, bruised soles, or a widened white line. Watch for unusual behavior as well, such as an abnormal gate or the appearance of “walking on eggshells.” Watch for shifting while standing, lameness while turning or standing, or a “sawhorse” stance with the weight shifted to their hind feet and front legs outstretched.

Treatment

If you suspect your horse has laminitis, call a veterinarian or certified farrier as soon as possible. Depending on the cause and severity of the condition, Eliot Pargament says treatment may include IV fluids, anti-endotoxic medications, pain medication such as NSAIDs, antibiotics, vasodilators and bedding changes for better sole support. In severe cases, the farrier or vet may recommend lidocaine patches or a catheter. Changing the shoeing can also significantly improve the horse’s comfort. Eliot Pargament is experienced in changing the shoes on laminitic horses.

More on Eliot Pargament

Eliot Pargament has been a farrier since 2011. After graduating from the Tuscon School of Horseshoeing, he completed a training program at the “Harvard” of horseshoeing, the Kentucky Horse Shoeing School in Richmond. After apprenticing in the Washington D.C. area, Eliot Pargament started his business Metro Farrier Services. He has worked closely with an expert farrier known for his skillful handling of difficult shoeing procedures and served as an assistant instructor at the University of Maryland. Eliot Pargament has been a traveling farrier at several rodeos. He also continues his education via various training seminars and competitions around the U.S. and in Hamburg, Germany.

23% OF SURVEY RESPONDENTS INDICATE DISINTEREST IN WORKING FOR NONPROFITS

New Nonprofit Survey Data Reveals Job Applicants’ Outlook for Nonprofits

Gone are the days of talented professionals being willing to take a vow of poverty to work for a cause or a mission they are passionate about.”

— Lisa Brown Alexander, CEO, Nonprofit HR

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Almost half of the respondents for a recent Nonprofit HR survey said they will seek new or different employment in the next five years and of this group, 23% said that nonprofits would not be among the types of organizations they intend to pursue. Of those who indicated they would not work for a nonprofit, the top reason (49%) cited is that organizations do not pay enough. Another 19% indicated that nonprofits do not offer good long-term career opportunities and a final 12% said nonprofits are not well-run businesses.

“These statistics are alarming and should serve as a warning to social impact organizations of all types who have not adapted a talent attraction strategy to remain competitive. Gone are the days of talented professionals being willing to take a vow of poverty to work for a cause or a mission they are passionate about. The social sector, rich with diverse and rewarding career opportunities, has long faced the misperception of being low-paying with limited opportunities for professional growth.These results confirm how pervasive this misperception is across the nation and re-ignites urgency in refuting this myth.” said Lisa Brown Alexander, CEO, Nonprofit HR.

Nonprofit HR partnered with a leading market research firm to administer the survey to over 1,000 respondents. The survey sample spanned the four regions of the United States, covering a broad respondent demographic.

As the third-largest employment sector in the country, social impact organizations remain a viable option for today’s jobseekers when their employer value propositions align with jobseekers’ preferences. Despite these findings, the results of this survey highlight specific opportunities for nonprofits and the sector to raise attractiveness and brand awareness to future jobseekers. Specifically, nonprofits can begin by assessing their total rewards program.

Anecdotally, social enterprises (for-profit firms focused for social causes) with higher brand visibility are now attracting talent that would historically have sought mission alignment with nonprofits. Still, nonprofits can connect with both current and future talent by communicating how they impact the communities that they serve, their unique benefits, and by emphasizing monetary and non-monetary rewards.

Results from the survey will be shared with the public in February 2020. Press seeking interviews regarding survey data and findings may email Senior Director for Client Marketing and Strategic Communication, Atokatha Ashmond Brew at abrew@nonprofithr.com.
