The City of Calgary requires a Consultant to undertake the following project with the anticipated following Phases:
Phase 1 Review and Update of Total Compensation Philosophy
The City has a long-standing compensation philosophy and principles that have guided the development and management of its compensation programs and plans. Changing priorities, economic and fiscal challenges, demographic shifts, the movement to a service-based organization, and the desire to better position the organization for the future have provided an opportunity to review, update and clearly articulate the compensation philosophy in alignment with business mission and objectives, organizational values and the employee value proposition. The newly defined compensation philosophy will include detailing the total rewards strategy, the reward mix, The City’s competitive market for talent and target positioning for total compensation, total cash compensation, and base salaries. The philosophy will identify, as appropriate, distinctions for Senior Management compensation, Exempt compensation and Union compensation. Finally, it will establish the relationship between pay and performance.
Phase 2 Review and Design Senior Management and Exempt Compensation Program
The City’s compensation program for Exempt staff, including Senior Management, has been in place for over 20 years. A review of the Exempt compensation program including how pay is determined and administered for this employee group is required. Based on the understanding of the organization gained from the development of the total compensation philosophy in Phase 1, an analysis of the current Exempt compensation program with specific recommendations on the design the future state of Exempt compensation and Senior Management compensation is required. The findings and recommendations arising from this review are intended to guide the future direction for other City compensation projects.
Phase 3 – Implementation of Design
This work is to be determined based on approved design recommendations from Phase 2, this phase will encompass implementation of design recommendations across the organization, including supporting systems.
