Enterprise Management Solutions Reform Package

​Overview

team of co-workersTo develop, retain, and attract the kind of skilled senior leadership professionals capable of the service delivery transformation the Governor and Legislature envision, we must bring our employment system for managers into the modern day.

What: State leaders are bringing a comprehensive package to the February legislative session regarding the state’s relationship with our managers, including a series of legislative and administrative actions focused on our management philosophy, our system of classification and compensation, and our training practices, retention and recruitment.
 
How: The Enterprise Leadership Team has chartered a body of work to begin changing the current system with a series of recommended legislative and administrative steps this year. Many of the proposed changes can be implemented administratively, while some components of the full package will require legislative approval. 
 
This project will outline options for greater flexibility in total compensation, improved training and performance management programs that focus on outcomes, as well as better ways to recruit and support the right people, in the right job for the right amount of time.
 
We’ve engaged professionals who have helped other states update their classification system successfully, and have begun a comprehensive market comparison to develop a clear and useable classification system and a transparent, competitive and responsible compensation structure. The state has not completed a comprehensive evaluation of this system in almost 25 years, although we review it for classified employees every two years as part of the collective bargaining process.
 
The Governor had a productive meeting with leadership of organized labor. We have committed to being fully transparent and to involve them in the development of the project.
 
When: The Governor will be introducing legislation in the February 2014 session to request changes, including revisions to the restoration rights of managers returning to classified service agreed to during the last round of collective bargaining.
