Good afternoon,


The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is pursuing its interest in a “Pay for Performance” compensation model for salaried employees.  I would appreciate any information you have regarding your process.  Please provide answers to the following questions:


  1. Does your agency currently participate in a “Pay for Performance” method of performance management?
  2. If you answered “yes” to question #1, do you have an example of your compensation matrix that you would be willing to share with JCSO?
  3. What strategies did you use to develop your compensation matrix?
  4. What benefits has your agency experienced as a result of this method of performance management?
  5. What are the challenges your agency has experienced with this type of performance management?
  6. Who determines the compensation level for individual employees? 
  7. Is there a process in place to validate your system in an effort to mitigate employee grievances?


Thank you for any assistance.  Please feel free to call or email me with questions or more discussion if necessary.
