  Business Operations and Performance

The Business Operations and Performance Division is comprised of the Classification, Compensation, and Workforce Performance teams. The Classification and Compensation team reviews and evaluates the duties and responsibilities of individual positions and occupational classes in response to employee, department, and union requests to assure that positions are correctly assigned at comparable grade levels. This team also ensures that employees are accurately and appropriately compensated through technical analysis and equitable application of compensation systems and procedures. The team designs compensation plans and provides leadership to departments on performance-based pay. The Classification and Compensation team is also responsible for oversight and administration of the County's compensation policies.

Workforce Performance consists of the Rewarding Excellence and Performance Management team. Rewarding Excellence is a process that encourages, mentors, and coaches front-line employees to work together as a team to implement improvement initiatives within Montgomery County Government. Performance management is a continuous process, which includes creating performance appraisals, observing and documenting performance and behavior, providing feedback, coaching, mentoring, and evaluating employees. The goal is to help employees and supervisors achieve Montgomery County's overall vision of efficient, effective, innovative, and responsive delivery of quality services.
