Beaufort County, SC: Classification and Compensation Study Services

Evergreen was engaged with Beaufort County to provide Classification and Compensation Study Services. The purpose of the study was to address changes in county operations and staffing over the past decades, which might have affected the type, scope, and level of work being performed. The objectives of the study were to: attract and retain qualified employees; ensure positions performing similar work with essentially the same level of complexity, responsibility, and knowledge, skills, and abilities are classified together; provide salaries commensurate with assigned duties; clearly outline promotional opportunities and provide recognizable compensation growth; provide justifiable pay differentials between individual classes; and maintain a competitive position with other comparable governmental entities and private employers within the same geographic area.
