Nonprofit employees have some basic needs for humane treatment, which are often neglected by employers; nonprofits should take note of the value added by their employees, and what they want.

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of nonprofits on matters related to talent and have noticed some patterns among the employees of my nonprofit clients. Here are my observations, in no particular order.

"Livable wages: Just because someone chooses to work for a nonprofit doesn’t mean they want to be forced to rely on other nonprofits in order to survive. Nonprofit employees certainly understand their employers may not necessarily be able to pay wages equal to that of big businesses. However, they need to make a livable wage without having to have the pressure of holding down two jobs in order to do so."--Roberta Matuson, Forbes
