SUNY Ulster, NY: Compensation, Classification, and Organizational Study

Evergreen Solutions was retained by SUNY Ulster to assist in the organizational development and compensation and classification review with College stakeholders. The goal of the study was to assist the College in determining the most effective organizational structure and allocation of human capital resources. Evergreen’s consultants reviewed appropriate staffing levels, including, supervisor to employee ratios, allocation of academic department administrative responsibilities, and function consolidation opportunities. Evergreen reviewed the College’s current classification system for faculty, professional staff, and management confidential employees, conducted a job analysis, performed a market review for comparable positions in the relevant private and public sectors, conducted a benefits survey that included health insurance, retirement contributions, tuition waivers, life insurance, and disability, and provided recommendations for the best classification and compensation plan design that would allow for competitive and equitable compensation both internally and externally and would alleviate any compression/equity issues. Evergreen provided best practice options and drafted recommendations for changes to realign resources to sustain and enhance the College’s effectiveness in meeting its strategic goals.
