Human Resources is conducting a pay analysis to determine where pay compression exists in the county. The results of the analysis will be used to begin tackling compression. Pay compression is when employees with a lot of job experience are paid nearly the same as employees with much less experience.
To complete the analysis, all benefit-eligible and merit employees entered and submited their
prior related work experience into PeopleSoft by the September 15, 2017 deadline.

Collecting employee prior related work experience has two steps:
In addition to entering prior related work experience, employees identified whether their related work experience is equivalent to their current job.
Work that qualified and prepared an employee for their current job. The duties and responsibilities were at least 50% the same as their current job. This information will be used to calculate an employee’s vacation leave accrual rate.
Previous jobs that are equal to an employee’s current job. These jobs required the same or equivalent levels of knowledge, skills and experience as their current job. This information will be used to determine where compression exists across the county and to make recommendations to begin addressing compression.
