Salary Benchmarking Study
The City of Wilmington has released a Salary Benchmarking Study (also referred to as a Salary Compensation Report), which it commissioned in order to review salaries across its executive and managerial (E&M) pay plan. There are approximately 130 E&M employees in the City’s total workforce of 1,100. While the study reviewed 100 of the City’s E&M positions, it found comparable salary information for just 76 of them. Mayor Mike Purzycki said the City leadership positions that were evaluated are critical to the effective and efficient delivery of programs and services to the public and require talented professionals to fulfill these roles. The City Department of Human Resources engaged PFM Group Consulting, LLC (PFM) to perform the study that was completed last week.
