Average expense per employee
This metric is a crude measurement looking at the expenses of a charity on employment. It takes the total amount of revenue spent for employee expenses and divides it by the number of FTE’s. This measurement assumes every employee carries an equal cost to employ.
Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.
Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
