Provide recommendations for consolidation or division of current departments, staff level changes, justifications for resulting staffing levels in each 10 department, and methodology for changing future staffing levels.
  • Deliver and design implementation methodology and timelines for a competency-based system for applicable jobs which can be integrated into Consultant’s core proposals in the classification and compensation deliverables.
  • Design and deliver a performance evaluation system which can be used to drive Consultant’s recommended classification and compensation career progression models.
