Program Description

  Business Operations and Performance

The Business Operations and Performance Division is comprised of the Classification, Compensation, Workforce Performance, and Strategy and Innovation 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 Performance Management team. 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.

Strategy and Innovation is designed to assess, define, and execute an HR governance and service delivery model that focuses on the creation of a more streamlined, synergistic, consistent, and cost-effective execution of HR policies, collective bargaining agreements, services, programs, and other human capital related initiatives. In addition, the problem solver positions are dedicated to the development and management of process improvement initiatives, data analytics, and OHR performance goals and objectives while serving as a ready resource to support OHR divisions on solving complex business and operational issues.
