New employee incentive plan implemented by DD board

FPS staff report

A new employee incentive plan is being implemented for employees of the Carroll County Developmental Disabilities program.

The plan, approved by the Developmental Disabilities Board at their June 6 meeting will replace the previous step increases and is part of the work with Dublin Management to create a better employee evaluation, according to Supt. Matt Campbell.

“Employees must now earn base pay increases through evaluation scores. Staff can earn, depending on the job description and evaluation score, $0 to $1,650 per year,” Campbell explained.

“The new plan will eliminate the 18 steps that were just based on years worked, implement salary ranges based on market data and link pay increases to work performance,” Campbell added.

The new plan is divided into four groups. Staff in Group 1 include 9 month, drivers and part-time employees who will be eligible for earning $500.

Group 2 consists of 12-month 70-hour employees eligible for $650. Group 3 includes 12-month 80-hour employees eligible for $1,100 and Group 4 consists of contract employees who will be eligible for $1,650.

Employees must earn an average evaluation score of 3.01 to 3.2 to earn half of the incentive pay. A score of 3.21 to 5.0 will earn all the incentive pay and the evaluation is based on 1 to 5 with 1 being the lowest.

Campbell said the new plan will become effective upon completion of the evaluation process and the first incentive pays will be made at the June 14, 2014, pay period.

 Campbell said he also attended the Project Mentoring in Ohio for Reading Excellence conference (MORE) at Bowling Green State University where he and Alicia Hall, Director of Education at Carroll Hills School, and Chrystal Day, a pre-school coordinator, were presenters and talked about their full implementation of Project MORE.
