The highest-paying skill to have in this role seems to be Event Planning; employees claiming this as part of the toolbox earn a median of $61K per year. Fundraising also popped up often in the survey as an important skill; roughly a sixth of employees surveyed report using it at work. Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, and Marketing Communications are also desirable skills.
Benefits and Perks
A third of employees receive paid vacation, and only a fifth of employees get sick leave. Workers wishing to put aside retirement money are in luck; Boy Scouts of America sponsors various plans such as a 403(b) plan and a defined benefit retirement plan. Health insurance comes as part of the deal for a solid majority of workers, and a fair number of workers report receiving dental coverage as well. A few more workplace perks are life insurance, a subsidized cell phone, a defined benefit retirement plan, and defined contribution (dc) retirement plan.
