Subject: HR Project Update!
Dear State Employee,
The next phase of the Classification, Job Evaluation and Market Pay project has officially started. During the week of
June 16-20, 2008 the members of the Job Evaluation Committee were trained on the Hay Method of job evaluation.
Once the training was completed the committee divided into two teams and began evaluating jobs. The information used
to conduct the evaluations was provided by the data you supplied during the A, B and C process.
The teams are focusing on evaluating 138 benchmark jobs. The benchmark jobs were selected by the Human Resource
Division and the Hay Group. The state’s benchmark jobs are defined as a cross section of our classifications that
represent common (everyone has one), most populous and a representation of multiple levels in a series. There were a
total of 157 A, B and C documents, relating to 72 different classifications, reviewed during the week.
Once the benchmark jobs have been evaluated the next task will be to evaluate and slot all of the remaining jobs. When
all of the jobs have been evaluated the Human Resource Division, working with the Hay Group and the agencies, will
bring all of the data together and develop the new classification structure as well as new job descriptions.
Using the new job descriptions the Hay Group will then begin the market pay portion of this project. More to come on
