Evergreen Solutions was retained by the City of Rocky Mount to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study. Evergreen’s consultants conducted a comprehensive salary study of appropriate public and private sector organizations as well as non-profits and utilities to determine whether the City’s salaries, benefits and wages were competitive within the appropriate job market and reviewed the effectiveness of the City’s overall compensation system. Evergreen further reviewed the City’s salary structure and pay plan to ensure the City can support recruitment and retention of employees more effectively and reviewed the accuracy of position titles and descriptions regarding unique characteristics of the position, essential job functions, minimum qualifications, working conditions, licensing requirements, on-call requirements, and supervisory requirements, etc. Evergreen also provided an analysis of the existing internal hierarchy and internal career ladders where appropriate and assisted the city with efforts to more fully develop and clearly outline job progression opportunities and provide recognizable compensation growth. In the end, Evergreen developed and presented final recommendations with an implementation plan that included the impact of implementing recommended adjustments to current salaries both immediately and in the future.
