Stafford committee considers study on compensation and classification
By Katie Thisdell
STAFFORD TO STUDY PERSONNEL ISSUES
Job titles and pay scales could be studied in Stafford County in the coming months. Mike Neuhard, acting human resources administrator, presented a proposal Tuesday to the Finance, Audit and Budget committee.
"Over the last five years, we've had a tremendous amount of change in how we have done work here in the county," Neuhard said. "That has resulted in a lot of our positions expanding their responsibilities, changing their method of work."
Stafford's last comprehensive compensation study was done in 2005. In 2006, the board adopted a market-based pay for performance comp system and philosophy. It is unclear the last time job classifications were reviewed.
A study could take six to nine months to complete, at a cost of $100,000 to $150,000. Staff will present more information at the committee's next meeting.
