We recently sat down with Gayle Brandel, CEO of PNP Staffing Group to talk about her company and the importance of the Salary Report PNP produces each year, and how this year, in particular, is critical in gathering as many surveys as possible in order to help the nonprofit industry.
NRH: Tell us about PNP and the services it provides
GB: Since 1996, PNP Staffing Group, also known as Professionals for NonProfits, has been providing talent exclusively to the nonprofit sector. Specializing in Executive Search and Direct Hire, Interim Professionals, Consultants, Temp-To-Hire, and Contract/Temporary Staff – offering a single source of staffing solutions a nonprofit might need.
Our specialties are in the areas of Executive management, Fundraising and Development, Finance, Human Resources, Program Management, Database, and Office Support.
NRH: Can you tell us a little about your role at PNP?
GB: I currently serve as the CEO of PNP. Prior to founding PNP, I served in a financial and business management capacity in numerous leading NYC nonprofit institutions. I have extensive strategic talent management, and capacity-building experience. But above all, I am committed to helping nonprofits make smart hiring decisions.
I sit on several nonprofit Boards, have authored numerous articles on hiring, retention, and professional development for publications in this sector.
NRH: Can you tell us a little about your team at PNP?
GB: Our team is comprised of a diverse group of executives and recruiters who have many years of experience in the nonprofit sector. Team members have been with PNP between 7 to 22 years. Our expertise, experience, and connections to leaders in the sector help us reach the top 10% of talent in the marketplace to bring the best staff to help nonprofits sustain their missions and advance capacity.
NRH: What is PNP’s motto?
GB: We believe in the power of nonprofits to make a difference in people’s lives and are proud that PNP provides the staff to help make that difference.
NRH: Gayle, can you explain what the Salary Report is and why it is so important for nonprofit organizations to take the time to complete and submit the survey?
GB: Every summer we start gathering salary information from nonprofits by sending out a salary survey to the sector. It is critical that as many people as possible fill out the survey so that our information on our Salary Report is accurate. PNP’s Annual Salary Report for Nonprofits provides hiring managers with valuable salary information to help them compete effectively for talent in the marketplace. This free report is available every November.
NRH: What would you say is the key to a nonprofit organization’s success?
GB: I would say the key to an organization’s success and sustainability, large or small, is the quality of its staff. In addition, a staff that is diverse tends to be more innovative and productive. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the core of all our placements as we spread a wide net in the marketplace for the best talent for our clients.
NRH: What are the goals for PNP as you move forward into the future?
GB: We always strive to provide staffing expertise and service to our current clients and to expand our reach more fully into the association sector and universities. In addition, we would like to increase our partnerships with companies providing services in the sector to be able to offer more robust services to clients.
We would like to thank Gayle for spending some time with us and for all this great information.
