County to undergo multi-phase job analysis

Special to The Times

The request for a proposal for a Classification and Compen-sation Analysis was awarded to the Archer Company after Board approval at the regular Commission meeting held on June 6.

The goal of this multi-phase analysis project are to appropriately align job descriptions with employee roles and responsibilities, and conduct a market comparison of similar jobs for recruitment, planning and retention purposes.

Henry County Human Resources Director Doris Patterson said that it has been more than ten years since an analysis like this has been completed for county employees.

“It is recommended that every three years you have a review of a classification compensation structure and we have been long overdue for this project,” said Patterson. “Once we get this updated, we can periodically review so that we can stay current with job classification and compensation.”

Funding for this project will cost approximately $76,000 and the Archer Company will provide analysis to over 1,000 positions and to more than 500 job titles.
