We help clients develop market-based, insightful compensation strategies
to motivate, retain and reward employees. We offer customized
solutions to help foundations and nonprofits adapt to changing labor
markets, complex regulatory landscapes, organizational change or internal
states of flux. Our data and insights help clients manage change
in their pay programs as they grow, reorganize or integrate with other
organizations.

We have extensive experience creating competitive compensation programs
for major U.S. foundations and nonprofits. The Croner Company
acquired Lasnik∞Broida Consultants, Inc. in 2016 to build on the
strengths of the two nationally recognized boutique compensation consulting
firms, blending Croner’s high-level, high-touch data analytics
approach with Lasnik∞Broida’s annual survey of foundations and consulting
services to foundations and nonprofits.

Together we publish the Lasnik∞Broida / Croner Total Compensation
Survey of Foundations, considered the gold standard benchmark resource
for total compensation information and data in the foundation
sector. The survey contains everything required to know how to be
competitive in attracting, retaining and motivating talent. We utilize the
results of our annual survey to provide strong data analytics and pragmatic
solutions to our clients.
