RFP - CLASSIFICATION & COMPENSATION STUDY

HR_RFP

The City of Watsonville is seeking proposals from qualified professional consultants to conduct a citywide classification and compensation study. The selected consultant will assist the City in reviewing and updating all job classifications and reviewing the compensation system (including benefits) and making salary recommendations based on external market analysis and internal equity of the total compensation for all positions. The City expects to select one firm based on demonstrated competence and cost-effective approach to design, conduct, and assist in the implementation of a citywide classification and compensation study.

The City of Watsonville is a full-service Charter City located on the Central Coast of California. The City employs approximately 400 full time employees in the following departments: Administration, City Clerk, City Attorney, Police, Fire, Airport, Community Development, Parks and Community Services, Finance, Public Works and Utilities and Library.

Approximately 400 full time employees are employed in approximately 175 job classifications. There are approximately 40 full time classifications included on the current salary schedule that are not utilized and may be proposed for elimination as part of the study. Many of the utilized classifications have been created, reviewed, and revised as needed, but a comprehensive city-wide classification review has not been conducted. The City last conducted a city-wide compensation study in 2018.

The City includes 11 employee groups including:

  • Police Officers Association (POA)

  • Public Safety Mid-Management (PSMM)

  • International Association of Fire Firefighters (IAFF)

  • Operating Engineers Local No. 3 (OE3)
