Job Evaluation is the formal systematic process to identify the relative worth of jobs within the classified service. A major responsibility of the Compensation and Classification unit is the consistent administration of the job evaluation process.
The Compensation and Classification unit facilitates the Job Evaluation Committee, which consists of 10 state employees trained in using the Hay Guide -Chart Profile Method of Job Evaluation system. Evaluations are based on the degree to which jobs reflect know-how, problem solving, and accountability factors. Based on the results of these evaluations, jobs are assigned to the appropriate pay band in the classified salary structure.
