Evergreen Solutions was hired by the City of Pflugerville to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study for its workforce of over 300 full- and part-time employees. Evergreen analyzed each position within the City by conducting interviews and job audits; evaluated employee position descriptions and duties; interviewed department heads and managers; and assessed classifications within positions (I, II, III, or Lead, Foreman). In addition, Evergreen reviewed current job descriptions, focusing on the purpose, job scope, essential duties and responsibilities, education/training requirements, physical job requirements, and working conditions, determined FLSA status (exempt/non-exempt) for positions under federal regulations, and recommended which positions were essential positions in the event the City had a temporary closure. Based on this review, Evergreen presented a proposed classification structure to City management and incorporated input into the final classification document, including a cost analysis for positions that required adjustments.
Evergreen surveyed the cities of Georgetown, Round Rock, Hutto, Cedar Park, Leander, San Marcos, and College Station to compare compensation and benefit structures in addition to minimum and maximum rates of pay for select positions and made recommendations toward appropriate ranges for rates of pay for each position identified. This included a minimum, mid-point, and maximum, with 1st and 3rd quartile designations. A Salary Grade Chart was prepared based on these recommendations and was presented to management for final approval.
