Goals and Success Measures Project Approach
The Classification and Compensation Initiative will provide solutions that meet the classification and compensation needs of the State of Oregon and its employees. The success measures below will provide the foundation for policies, processes and procedures ensuring that the classification and compensation system is one that is flexible, consistent and fair.

A Classification Framework identifying occupational groups and job families.

A Compensation Philosophy to guide decision makers for future compensation needs.

A Compensation plan that is accurate, fair, and consistent with the new Classification Framework and Compensation Philosophy.

Objective job evaluation processes to ensure consistency of job worth and equity.

A flexible classification system keeping current with occupational changes.

Regularly scheduled review cycles for all classification and compensation needs.

New classification and compensation business processes and procedures that are flexible, dynamic, and designed to satisfy customer needs.

The Initiative has been divided into four phases. These phases are independent of each other, but when combined, satisfy the goals and success measures identified for the Classification and Compensation Initiative.

Phase 1 - Framework; develop a new classification structure with occupational groups and job families.

Phase 2 - Job Content and Allocation; accurately capture the description of employee work and allocate all classifications to the Phase 1 Classification Framework.

Phase 3 - Compensation Philosophy; develop a statewide compensation philosophy for all classification and compensation needs.

Phase 4 - Market Analysis; Complete a total compensation market analysis of all classifications.
