Evergreen Solutions was engaged with Cobb County to conduct a Comprehensive Compensation Review and Update of Classification/Pay System. The scope of work included a comprehensive compensation and benefit market survey; job analysis and evaluation; evaluation of internal and external compensation equity; an implementation recommendation and update; and preparation of draft and final reports. Evergreen updated the salary range structure based on the compensation survey results and internal relationships, while minimizing compression, and assuring internal equity and external competitiveness for sworn (full and part-time); non-sworn; and part-time employees. Evergreen further made recommendations regarding a Step Plan for all County graded positions. Evergreen reviewed and updated job descriptions and coordinated an appeal process for employees to appeal through their management and address any concerns.
