.210 Organizational Survey Procedure 

    .211 The general procedure for performing an Organizational Survey is: 

    1. The actual need for a survey should be determined.  If deemed appropriate, applicable titles and locations within an organization will be identified.
    2. Personnel office(s) will be contacted to discuss the purpose of the survey, methods to be used, roles, and any special considerations.
    3. Arrangements will be made for a preliminary group meeting of supervisors and employees.  A qualified agency employee will be designated to participate as the agency representative in the survey.
    4. Background information including organizational charts with names, titles, and salary grades will be obtained and studied.  From this, planning activities for survey implementation will be finalized.
    5. Employees will be interviewed at their work sites, work samples will be collected, duty statements will be clarified, and inconsistencies, if any, will be discussed.
    6. Findings and recommendations of the survey will be presented to the agency, which will be asked to respond to the findings and recommendations.
    7. A final report with determinations will be issued by the Division of Classification and Compensation.
