What can a compensation study accomplish for your school district?

Today’s job market is more competitive than ever, and compensation is a major player in attracting the best and brightest of employees. Choosing a proper pay scale that is strategically aligned with, or in some cases better than, your competition gives you an edge to attract desired staff during today’s tough times.

Once you have secured top talent, you want to keep them. To do so, you need to keep a handle on the compensation market/peers vis-a-vis job positions. Employees expect to be paid in alignment with the prevailing market/peer salaries. If you fail to do so, they may choose another school district or may leave for local non-education jobs.

Having a well-defined structure in place to guide how job offers are made and the salary offered is important. The same is true when making promotions. A good compensation study serves as a source to ensure ongoing internal equity when it comes time to make and communicate compensation decisions. Maintain transparency while staying consistent and current.

While there’s a growing volume of free compensation data on the internet and some school districts may publish certain salary schedules online, hopping from website to website trying to find the information and cobble it together is a time-consuming process and often inaccurate. A compensation study will allow you to make fairer decisions and manage resources more wisely.
