Smile Train's Compensation Philosophy Statement

Pink and Susie - DEIBA

Smile Train is the largest cleft-focused organization with a model of true sustainability — providing training, funding, and resources to empower local medical professionals to provide 100%-free cleft surgery and other forms of essential cleft care in their own communities.

Our dedicated and passionate staff are central to driving and delivering our programs. Our team, boards, and partners work together to foster an environment where all colleagues feel valued and recognized. Our compensation framework is equitable and competitive.

Compensation is one of the many ways we recognize performance. We are proud to offer thoughtful and comprehensive compensation packages. This is just one way that we recognize and celebrate the commitment of our extraordinary staff and continue to attract talented professionals from around the world. Furthermore, we offer learning and growth opportunities that allow our team members to realize their potential and maximize their contributions to the organization.

As a non-profit organization with fiduciary responsibilities to a wide array of stakeholders, we balance responsible stewardship of funds with a compensation strategy that attracts and retains world-class employees and empowers our team members to thrive in their professional and personal lives. Global market trends, including compensation studies, and other employment factors including roles, responsibilities, and location are evaluated and considered when making decisions around compensation.

Smile Train’s compensation philosophy, vision, and core values allow us to create smiles around the globe and a workplace that so many are happy to call home.
