Join us on Wednesday, November 23 for a roundtable conversation about creating sustainable jobs for a sustainable sector.
We’ll take a look at the CSCNL’s survey “The Community Sector Council Newfoundland and Labrador: Survey on Salary and Benefits in the Community Sector 2022” and how this data can be applied to the creative sector as we discuss:
- What to pay
- What benefits to consider
- The importance of transparent salary information
- How to talk about the many benefits of working in the cultural sector
- How working conditions in the arts are evolving
- Creating jobs that will make people want to stay
We’ll also consider how the survey can be used to jump-start these conversations in the sector, its importance in establishing transparent and equitable hiring practices, and its potential use as a tool for advocacy regarding wage and employment standards.
The panel will be moderated by Business & Arts NL’s Executive Director Amy Henderson and feature Penelope Rowe, CEO at Community Sector Council NL (CSCNL); Natalie Hand, Managing Partner at KBRS Recruiting firm; and Grégoire Gagnon, Executive Director at Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC).
