City of Boulder City, NV: Classification and Compensation Study

Evergreen Solutions was engaged with the City of Boulder City to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study.  Evergreen’s consultants conducted a job evaluation, classification review, and developed a compensation system for all positions and job classifications in order to make recommendations regarding the appropriateness, internal equity, and external competitiveness of the City’s classification and compensation plans.  Evergreen developed an updated and well-structured classification system as well as classification descriptions for all positions that was legally compliant (including Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements), internally aligned, reflective of contemporary standards, and accurately reflected current roles, responsibilities, duties, and qualifications.  The study also reviewed the City’s compensation structure by conducting a market salary survey using comparator agencies.  The compensation study contained specific recommendations regarding the integration of all classifications into a clear compensation structure, with the goal of developing a clearly designed, internally equitable format that would be flexible for career opportunity and future growth.
