Evergreen Solutions was retained by the Springfield R-12 School District to conduct a Compensation and Benefits Study. Evergreen conducted a full market salary and benefits analysis for all staff (3,987) with comparable labor markets to support the efforts of the District to attract and retain the best talent, while establishing a consistent and competitive market position within budgetary constraints. Evergreen also compared the District’s extra-duty salaries to peer organizations. Evergreen conducted an internal equity analysis by reviewing employee job descriptions and making recommendations for new job descriptions or updates to existing job descriptions according to the function each employee actually performed compared to their stated job description. Evergreen further determined whether there were compression or inequity issues and made recommendations for improvements.
