Evergreen met with ITSD leadership to collect relevant best practice technical competencies to populate competency matrices by functional area.
A salary survey tool was developed to include all classifications in order to collect relevant compensation data from the private and public sector. Evergreen used the data collected to propose a comprehensive as well as a market competitive banded structure that includes sub-bands for functional expertise. Evergreen’s consultants provided examples as well as an assessment of the best method of supplementing pay for high demand jobs. In addition, best practices were reviewed for implementation.
