Classification & Compensation Study

Your Roadmap to Fair, Legal & Effective Structures    

Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established.


Have you ever been on a road trip and got lost?  The landmarks help you to know where you are but things are less clear when you try to trace exactly how you got there.  Even more importantly, without a clear roadmap, you will never be able to plot a safe and course to back home.


Many times trying to understand and explain job classifications and compensation

structures that are not up-to-date and strategic can make Human Resource and

Business Administrators feel the same way. Have you ever struggled to provide good

answers to employees, administrators or board members who ask to the following:


  • Why is one job classification paid higher or lower than another?

  • How do you expect me to evaluate employees fairly and accurately?

  • Are we in compliance with all federal, state and local regulations?

  • How does our compensation compare to other employers?

  • As the minimum wage increases, what is our strategy stay up=to-date?
