Employee Wage Study Leads to Adjustments

Provo City's Human Resources Division conducted the annual study of public sector pay grades and 122 job classifications have been recommended to receive a pay grade adjustment. Because Provo City is committed to the effort to attract and retain quality employees, they realize that compensation is a key component of that goal.

The City's overall compensation plan consists of many balanced parts, each designed to address various aspects of pay, benefits, career progression, employee rewards, internal equity, recruitment efforts, and market competition. The changes recommended as a result of the wage study are included in the budget Mayor Curtis presented to the City Council. More information about the wage study can be found in the documents attached to the May 19 Work Meeting agenda (executive summary, employee guide) and you can listen to the administration's proposal in the video from that meeting.
