Completed Tasks

2020 Q3

  • Focusing on a number of recruitment and retention efforts through compensation, benefits and policies. The City added graduate degree programs to the Education Assistance policy, completed negations with Police and Fire on union agreements with competitive pay and benefits and increase vacation time for non-union employees.
  • We are currently finalizing the compensation study that compares our positions to the market, adjusts incumbents to the correct job grade, and moves them through the range based on years in positions to help address compression issues. There will also be new compensation polices adopted to make sure that wage adjustments, new hires, promotions, etc., are all handled consistently to keep us competitive with the market.
  • As we move into our benefit renewals, we are looking at adding a few new options to employees to enhance our current benefits package.
