A comprehensive job classification and payroll study has been authorized by the Macon County Board of Commissioners and the project is set to begin this month. County administrators contracted out to Springsted Incorporated, a highly touted firm closely associated with the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners, to perform the project.
Springsted specializes in human resources and organizational management best practices, and the firm has been advising local governments and public agencies about the latter topics for more than 25 years. Springsted has completed similar studies for Transylvania, Craven, Brunswick, Cabarrus, Camden, Onslow, and Pender counties, just to name a few. The North Carolina League of Municipalities also highly recommends Springsted, as the firm has undertaken similar projects for their organization in the recent past.
