Jefferson County, MO: Compensation and Classification Study

Jefferson County retained Evergreen Solutions to conduct a comprehensive compensation and classification study to analyze the County’s market competitiveness and internal equity.

Located just 40 miles southwest of the City of St. Louis, Jefferson County possesses a unique set of challenges being on the border of more rural, suburban, and even metropolitan markets. Maintaining market competitive compensation and classification plans in these environments requires special effort.

The study included comprehensive classification analysis using the Job Assessment Tool job valuation methodology in addition to a statistical assessment of current conditions. An assessment of external equity including a salary survey of competing organizations was also conducted. The project concluded with a series of findings and recommendations designed to alleviate any strains on the system and, if necessary, redesigned the existing system in place for the County.
