Competitive Pay: The Total Rewards Package

Local governments are in fierce competition with each other and the private sector to hire the best and the brightest. Without a competitive compensation package, your jurisdiction might be missing out on hiring top-tier employees and put yourself at risk for losing the ones you already have.  

Join compensation experts Sandy Stapczynski and Carol Granfield, ICMA-CM in a webinar that will show you various methods for municipal compensation and planning. They will discuss their experiences and best practices for local government when conducting compensation planning and determining pay rates for individual positions.  

Audience: Local government managers, assistant managers and HR directors 

You and your staff will discuss:

  • traditional custom salary surveys for targeted organizations
  • salary data analytics utilizing public and private sector databases
  • professional national industry surveys for targeted occupational families
  • other types of compensation beyond base pay
  • how to weigh and compare the total compensation package
  • the advantages of also using an internal equity tool (for pay equity purposes such as ranking and classification and grouping similar like positions on a pay and classification plan)
