Classification Studies

The foundation for relevant and defensible compensation programs is a sound classification structure. A Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ) for employee completion provides the information necessary to modify or update your classification structure. Once distinct occupations are identified, updated job descriptions can be created to describe the typical assignments held by a classification. Essential job functions that make up a job description are crucial for compliance with ADA, EEO, and FLSA regulations.

Job information interviews, often called desk audits, may be a component of a classification study that provides further opportunity for employee participation. It’s important that employees are provided several opportunities to be a part of a study to increase understanding, acceptance, and to reinforce the objectivity of the study.

Total Compensation Studies

Using current information or in conjunction with a position classification study, base salary and total compensation surveys are conducted to provide an employer with an analysis of the overall competitiveness of its salary and benefits plans. Our staff of Certified Compensation Professionals (CCPs) develop and conduct compensation surveys that are customized for each client. We do not rely on published databases of compensation information that are often out of date, inaccurate, and unreliable.

We’ll help your organization identify your competitors on a local, regional, and/or industry-specific basis. We collect complete comparative data from each targeted survey comparator. This ensures not only the accuracy of the survey analysis, but also that our clients receive the services they seek – an independent, qualified, third party survey analysis with guaranteed results.

EZ COMP Proprietary Software

Using our unique EZ COMP™ application, we will recommend salary ranges for each classification based on market prevailing rates, internal job evaluation points, and/or whole job analysis. Compensation plans can be designed to meet external competitiveness goals and internal equity needs. We customize our EZ COMP™ application for each client and provide training and electronic files for our clients to ensure their self-sufficiency with no long-term maintenance contracts or hidden fees.

Additional Services

Add-on services such as pay for performance training and staffing needs assessments can further enhance the scope of your project. Our Achievement Evaluation Program (AEP™) is designed to build occupation-specific performance goals, objectives, and standards for each job classification and provide managers and supervisors with the tools they need to document and reward their employees. Our Staffing Needs Analysis Program (SNAP™) is designed to qualify and quantify service levels and service demands, and is used to support changes in staffing levels when appropriate.
