Why a Compensation and
Classification Study?
What are we trying to address?
• Review duties and responsibilities of all jobs
• Update and standardize job descriptions
• Evaluate all jobs for internal value relationships
• Collect market compensation and benefits data for
benchmark jobs
• Develop a new or revised compensation system that is
externally competitive and internally equitable
• Compensation policies and procedures
• Identify costs to implement
