Background:

Mike Verdoorn, Project Manager at Fox Lawson & Associates LLC will provide consulting services to conduct the study. The study has two components. The first is to review all job functions to ensure staff is appropriately classified and to update class specifications. The second component of this study is to review classified compensation in order to determine if compensation is both internally equitable and externally competitive in the market. This study will not result in a reduction in anyone's current pay.

Study phases:

  • Phase I - Project Initiation and Strategy/Philosophy Development – This phase includes a review of Madison College’s current classification and compensation philosophy and development of a new or revised philosophy.
  • Phase II - Classification Study – Job descriptions are updated to reflect changes in duties or responsibilities.
    Job Evaluation – This phase applies a job evaluation methodology to ensure internal equity based on the level of responsibility and decision-making requirements of jobs.
  • Phase III – Market Study – This phase examines comparable colleges and employers.  The result is a sound compensation structure, which is competitive with comparable organizations.
  • Phase IV – Final Report
