Job Description/Classification Study

On behalf of the Classified Human Resources department and the Personnel Commission, we’d like to thank you for participating in the job description/classification study. The study is now complete with close to 100% of all classified job descriptions revised.

The next step in the process is to complete a compensation study.  The Personnel Commission has contracted with CPS HR Consultants to conduct the compensation study based on the revised and approved job descriptions. We hope to have the study completed by June 2014 and look forward to its implementation and finalizing the class and compensation study for Hayward Unified School District’s classified personnel.
