Pinellas County, FL: Classification and Compensation Study

Evergreen Solutions was retained by Pinellas County to conduct a Classification and Compensation Study that included recommendations and suggestions for an implementation and maintenance process that effectively provided the County with the resources and expertise to further enhance its classification and compensation program. A comprehensive job classification and pay study hadn’t been conducted since 2004 so the County believed it was important to invest in a study that would look at both internal and external equity. The objective of the study was to have a credible classification and compensation plan that: allowed positions performing similar work with similar levels of complexity, responsibility, and knowledge, skills and abilities to be classified appropriately; identified salaries for assigned duties; outlined promotional opportunities and possible compensation growth; identified pay differential between individual classifications; and identified relevant labor markets.
