Classification and Compensation Study
The City of Fresno is currently reviewing and updating its classification and compensation system covering approximately 3,800 regular full-time employees in approximately 454 current job classifications. Personnel Services have been working closely with Fox Lawson & Associates LLC (FLA), to ensure that the Classification and Compensation Study is a success.
FLA has been in business since 1981. While they have a broad understanding of human resources systems, their firm specializes in classification and compensation studies. These studies typically include: developing new classification structures and job descriptions, evaluating jobs with a job evaluation methodology to determine the internal equity, conducting a custom tailored salary survey, developing a competitive pay system, recommending strategies to implement the new compensation structure, and ensuring appropriate administrative and procedural guidelines are in place to maintain the system.
We understand your desire to stay informed about this Study. The creation of the Study webpage is an attempt to provide a means to help keep you informed of the status of activities related to the Study.
Consultants have notified the City that the compensation study has been issued to the organizations listed in the List of Employers, Cities and Counties to be Surveyed. Study participants have been given until October 24, 2008 to complete and return the survey.
