Membership Aims

Project Fair’s international membership organisation is for INGO Reward and HR Professionals with the overriding purpose to:

  • Research and develop practical, equitable and evidence-based reward approaches within the INGO sector
  • Provide a platform for collaborative and practical networking amongst our growing 70 INGO Reward and 40 INGO DEI community with over 200 individual members
  • Help capacity build Reward and HR professionals through discussion, training and facilitation.
  • Incorporate the values of Project Fair’s Principles and Standards into their Reward and DEI philosophy and access the Project Fair Member logo to use on website and branding materials

Who we are

Project Fair is part of the University of Edinburgh Business School and is built upon a strong body of research over the past decade into the psychological impact of dual salaries in the INGO sector, in particular their impact on employees’ motivation, performance, and retention.

Topics such as international salary benchmarking, hyperinflation, cost of living, dollarisation, hybrid working, and equity are just some of the areas we are engaged in.

In 2019, we worked with around 25 INGOs to develop a detailed set of Principles and Standards designed in order to help organisations develop a shared understanding of what fair reward means for the sector based on:

  • Ethical Reward
  • Transparency
  • Equity
  • Sustainability
  • Compliance and Risk
