Evergreen Solutions was retained by the City of Sandy Springs to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study. The study included all employees and classifications in the County. As part of the study, Evergreen conducted focus groups and interviews with employees, and employees completed a Job Assessment Tool (JAT) to determine where they fell in the hierarchy of jobs with the City. Evergreen further conducted a comprehensive salary survey of local and regional employers to assess the market competitiveness of the City. A detailed plan was developed to provide the City with specific steps to implement an equitable and competitive compensation and classification plan.
