JobsOhio Releases 2019 Wages and 2018 IRS Form 990

JobsOhio is publishing the 2019 wage data for its associates
Posted on

JobsOhio remains committed to its renewed focus to be open, transparent and accountable. To that effort, in May of 2019, JobsOhio released the 2019 salary of J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and chief investment officer as well as the compensation of the organization’s top executives. This information was released a year before it was required by statute. Today, JobsOhio is publishing the 2019 wage data for its associates, including the names and titles of its highest-paid executives. This information is being made available months earlier than the statute requires, in an effort to continue to earn the trust of partners and Ohioans across the state.

JobsOhio Wage Data

In order to drive new and expanding initiatives identified as part of JobsOhio 2.0 strategies addressing in-demand talent and workforce, site development, innovation, and inclusive economic development which impacts all parts of Ohio, JobsOhio has increased its number of associates from 90 to 102, a 13 % increase and wages increasing by a corresponding 13% over 2018. (Wages, total compensation paid to an employee, reported are from Box 18 of W-2)

JobsOhio associates’ wages are established in alignment with a thorough, market based compensation study completed by an independent consulting firm under direction of the JobsOhio Board of Directors. The independent, third party takes into account the work required to execute the mission of JobsOhio and advises on salary bands in accordance with the work completed in each position across the organization.

As a private nonprofit organization, JobsOhio files tax form 990 with the IRS each year. The 2018 IRS Form 990 is posted on JobsOhio’s website. The 990 reports total compensation in 2018, which includes wages and employee’s contributions to benefits. JobsOhio offers the following associate benefits to all fulltime associates:  401K match, medical premiums, vision, dental, and life insurance premiums, and short and long-term disability premiums. The benefits for JobsOhio associates are of similar value as other nonprofit organizations. JobsOhio makes the Form 990 available on its website, which is also exceeds statutory requirement.
