Comp and Class Study

Sedgwick County is embarking on a comp and class study to help gauge the organization's position as a competitive employer in the marketplace.  Learn more about this study here and how you can become involved.  More information will be added as the study progresses.

Compensation and Classification Study Fact Sheet

Email with any questions or comments.

This study will be conducted in four phases and should be completed by the first of the year:

  1. Employee Outreach - orientation and focus groups
  2. Job Assessments - online Job Assessment Tool (JAT) to describe the type of work done within the job title
  3. Salary survey of other public and private employers
  4. Recommendations to achieve an equitable and competitive compensation system


The Compensation and Classification study was presented to the BOCC at the March 25, 2014 staff meeting.  We hope to have the plan on the April 2, 2014 agenda for BOCC approval.  Nothing will be final until the BOCC takes action on this pay plan.  In summary, if your pay is below the minimum of your proposed range your pay will increase to reach the minimum.  If your pay is above the minimum of your proposed range your pay will increase by 1.26 percent.  All full-time and permanent part-time employees will receive at least an additional 1.26 percent.    

Watch the video of the March 25 BoCC meeting here.

The complete consultant report and the new proposed plan may be found on e-line Human Resources page by clicking the "Compensation and Classification Study" link on the left side of the page.

We will have a series of informational meetings regarding the pay plan:

  • March 31 from 9 to 10 a.m. in the Commission meeting room, 525 N. Main, third floor. Watch the video of the March 31 meeting here.
  • April 2 from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Human Services conference room, 635 N. Main.
  • April 4 from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Human Resources training room, 510 N. Main, third floor.

These meetings are voluntary. You are welcome to attend one or view a videotaped session that will be posted April 1 to the HR/comp and class study page of the county website. If you have any questions please ask your supervisor or department head, you may also submit them to I hope you take time to study the pay plan and how it will affect you.
