Classification and Compensation

Class and Compensation Group PhotoThe Human Resources Department’s Classification and Compensation Division conducts market research to determine competitiveness and employee equity through maintenance of a fair classification and compensation system in an effort to provide equitable compensation that attracts and retains competent, qualified employees at all levels.  
The Division also monitors and offers guidance in the administration of the Employee Performance and Development (EPDP) System, which better links employee performance with organization mission and goals and coordinates the City’s performance pay process.
