Hi Nathan, there was some discussion about this around the most recent
Annual Plan. While I think we need to make sure that hiring is aligned with
needs and strategy, the personnel issue that worries me the most is the
active editor decline. We may wish to address both of these issues in the
new strategic plan.

The annual plan has a nice representation of staffing growth in the last 5
years. In 2009-2010, the WMF had 50 employees. In this fiscal year it
anticipates having 240. The staff expense went from 2.2m in 2009 to nearly
20m in the recently ended year, and surely much more for the current one.
Whatever questions or conclusions you can draw from that, it is a
mind-boggling growth rate for a non-profit company.
