County to analyze staffing, compensation

Greenwood County is accepting bids to have their staffing, compensation and other employee-related issues analyzed in an effort to maximize their resources and provide top-quality customer service.

County administrators sent out a Request For Proposal (RFP) for an analysis of various staffing issues on March 28. The RFP covers a number of staffing issues. The brief in the RFP states that it is unknown when the last analysis took place.

The RFP asks for proposals to develop a new evaluation tool for county employees along with new titles and job descriptions. The county currently has 386 full-time employees and 111 part-time employees. Of the 386 full-time employees, 68 are considered exempt employees, meaning that they are not entitled to overtime pay as guarantees by the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The RFP also asks for a detailed compensation plan as well as a detailed plan for the administration and maintenance of the compensation plan. The plan for administration and maintenance of the proposed compensation plan must include a method for determining merit-based pay increases for county employees.

“Greenwood County is committed to maximizing the resources that we have at our disposal,” said County Manager Toby Chappell. “We feel that our employees deserve a competitive employer and our citizens deserve a high quality experience when they deal with county employees. This analysis will help us accomplish both of those goals.”

The RFP also asks for an analysis of the staffing and efficiency of all departments within the county. In addition to an analysis of staffing levels, it asks for an analysis of policies and procedures that hinder county employees from performing their jobs efficiently.

Bids must be submitted no later than Friday, April 12 at 2 p.m. The bids will be opened and read aloud at 2:10 p.m. in suite 106 at Park Plaza. The firm that is selected to perform the analysis must submit their final report no later than June 30.
