City of Clemson, SC: Classification and Compensation Study and Staffing Study

Evergreen Solutions is retained by the City of Clemson to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study and Staffing Study. Evergreen will review the existing classification and compensation plan to ensure that all positions within the City are internally equitable and externally competitive. The objective is to have a creditable Classification and Compensation Plan that ensures positions performing similar work with essentially the same level of complexity, responsibility, and knowledge, skills and abilities are classified together; provides salaries commensurate with assigned duties and provides recognizable compensational growth, provides justifiable pay differential between individual classes, and maintains currency with relevant labor markets. The end product of the study will include recommendations for the following: a classification schedule, job descriptions, a wage comparison with comparable cities/towns and a compensation plan.

The Staffing Study will document and review existing operations of the City through a collection of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and other outcome-related data. Evergreen will develop and collect the staffing and outcome survey and will analyze peer data to determine the relevant staffing range for each department/function, service, and level. Evergreen will review the results collected and develop recommendations that identify all gaps between the current and desired staffing by level and functional area of the City.
