One of the great benefits of this online survey is organizations can update salary and benefit information throughout the year as changes occur. When you make updates, we encourage you to contact Mindy Corby (firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 281-1217) or Joyce Hottinger (email@example.com or (651) 281-1216), so we can ensure your updated data gets posted as soon as possible. There will generally be a two-week lag before the updates are posted to the website so the data can be reviewed for any inadvertent errors. Remember, continued participation in the survey is required to continue to receive free access to the survey results.
Need a data entry code?
Data entry codes were mailed to the top appointed official (city manager or city clerk) and the chief HR representative (if applicable) for most cities on May 12, 2014. To request a data entry code:
If you are entering data, you should know about a change made this year—two parallel wage and benefit websites. Survey coordinators have the option of updating jobs online or with an Excel file. Coordinators also have the option to enter individual incumbent data or by position. Employee benefits will need to be updated online. An overview on the two parallel sites was provided by Waters on March 27, and access to the recorded webinar is at the top of this page.
A job matching training session, hosted by Waters Consulting Group, was presented on April 10 to review the importance of job matching, main factors to consider, most common mistakes in job matching, and frequently asked questions.
