Title
Director of Human Resources and Chief Administrative Officer recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign Resolution 147-2019 to increase the Director of Information Technologies salary range, effective the first pay period following adoption.

Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The current Director of Information Technologies will be vacating the position effective September 13, 2019. To determine the competiveness of the salary and benefits, Human Resources updated the 2018 total compensation data prior to recruitment being initiated to fill the position.

Using the same comparator agencies as the 2018 compensation analysis, eight of the County’s comparator agencies have a comparable classification to the County’s Director of Information Technologies. One significant difference between 2018 and 2019 data is the inclusion of a match for Placer County. Placer County recently re-organized and now has a comparable classification. The outcome of the 2019 total compensation study yielded that El Dorado County’s position is currently paid 16.92% below the total compensation median.

Consistent with trends across California counties, Information Technology Director positions continue to be hard to fill due to competition with the private sector. Therefore, given the current market data, it is recommended that the salary for the Director of Information Technologies be moved to 8% below the total compensation market median. This change would result in an 8.92% increase in base salary.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could choose to reject the salary increase.
