Together with over 20 small businesses and nonprofits in Ontario, ONN is proud to be a part of the Better Way Alliance, a group of Ontario employers championing decent work practices such as fair wages, stable employment and paid sick days. The Alliance believes there is a better way to build the economy and members are sharing their stories of how decent work practices are making a difference in their organizations and their communities. There’s been lots of buzz from the launch in media outlets and on social media. The website features videos, stories, and resources.


ONN is championing a decent work movement for good working conditions for everyone across Ontario. Decent work will allow organizations to achieve their missions because investing in our workforce ultimately saves time and money. According to the Centre for Nonprofit Management, to replace employees it costs employers on average 20% of the annual salary for entry to mid-level positions, and up to 213% of the annual salary for highly educated executive positions.

We have begun the second phase of the decent work movement and believe that together with our network and allies, we can develop a shared understanding of what decent work is and how it can be measured.
