HBR Consulting Provides Tahirih Justice Center With Comprehensive Compensation Study
January 8, 2015
HBR Consulting has announced the completion of its inaugural pro bono project for Tahirih Justice Center. HBR’s services included a comprehensive salary compensation study for Tahirih’s employees with the goal to better align compensation packages with industry peer organizations.
The Tahirih Justice Center works to protect immigrant women and girls seeking justice in the United States from gender-based violence. Tahirih’s innovative and comprehensive approach leverages pro bono resources to provide a combination of legal services, advocacy and public education programs.
Tahirih sought guidance from HBR Consulting in the area of compensation because of HBR’s proven expertise as the leading operations consultancy to the legal industry. HBR has an extensive track record of providing benchmarking data for U.S. and global law firms and corporate law departments through its consulting services, market intelligence and its industry-leading annual Law Department Survey.
The team at HBR dedicated hundreds of hours to this pro bono project, which resulted in a very well received compensation analysis for Tahirih to utilize internally in order to make adjustments to better position their lawyers’ compensation packages in the market. As part of the project, the HBR team surveyed four of Tahirih’s legal advocacy sector peers and compiled the data anonymously in the final analysis. The results of the survey were made available to the Tahirih Justice Center, as well as the participating peers.
“We are so grateful for HBR’s services, and are truly honored to receive the benefit of their generosity. We recently shared the results of the study and its impact on our compensation structure with our staff and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive,” said Layli Miller-Muro, Executive Director of Tahirih Justice Center.
The Tahirih pro bono initiative marked the first of its kind for HBR but firm leaders plan to seek additional pro bono opportunities and make this type of work a priority for the future. “Our pro bono project with Tahirih proved to be greatly valuable and rewarding for our internal team. We were able to produce a highly-valuable analysis to support a company that does tremendously important work with very limited resources,” said Chris Ryan, HBR Practice Group Leader & Managing Director.
