Wage & Salary Administration

Join over 800 organizations who choose Dean Group Consulting for their compensation and benefits consultant needs.

Dean Group Consulting, LLC's (DGC) approach to wage and salary administration consulting involves a comprehensive review of all elements of such programs including:

  • Written Wage & Salary Administration Program Policy Guide
  • Position Descriptions
  • Job Evaluation Systems
  • External Wage & Salary Market Data
  • Pay Grade & Range Structures
  • Classification of Work Force (EEO Definitions/FLSA Classifications)
  • Performance Appraisal Programs

We begin our consulting engagements by working with the top human resources executive and other members of the management to reaffirm the client’s total compensation philosophy (regarding cash compensation and employee benefits) and to reaffirm the client’s vision, mission, and business objectives. We also gather information on the wage and salary administration concerns of the top human resources executive as well as other executives and employees throughout the organization. Using different job evaluation approaches, DGC examines jobs throughout the organization from an internal equity perspective. We also gather external market wage and salary data for representative benchmark jobs. We then ultimately design a proposed wage and salary administration program that is:

  • Consistent with the vision, mission, business objectives, and total compensation philosophy of the client
  • Internally equitable
  • Externally competitive
  • Reasonable and sensitive to client's budgetary considerations
  • Attracts, retains, and motivates highly qualified employees

DGC has worked effectively with various types of job evaluation systems including:

  • Market Pricing
  • Point-Factor Position Evaluation
  • Whole Job Ranking
  • Grade/Classification Systems

DGC has also worked effectively with various types of performance appraisal systems to include:

  • Narrative Description Review
