Cherokee County, GA: Compensation and Benefits Study

Evergreen Solutions was retained by Cherokee County to conduct a Compensation and Benefits Study. Evergreen worked directly with County leadership to update job descriptions for every position, evaluated FLSA classifications, created a common template for all job descriptions, identified a set of comparable public and private organizations, and gathered relevant compensation and benefit data. Evergreen assessed total compensation based on both internal and external comparability and developed an updated compensation structure that provided a fair, competitive, transparent, sustainable and fiscally responsible program. Evergreen also made recommendations for the County’s compensation philosophy and guidelines based including longer term trends, risks and competitive forces, and prepared an analysis outlining the fiscal impact of all recommendations.
