Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The County currently utilizes the Human Resources Technician classification to administer/proctor written and performance examinations. When those incumbents are not available, the County has to utilize higher level classifications to perform this function. As such, Human Resources is recommending that the Board adopt the new classification of Examination Proctor - Extra Help. The salary for the new classification will be set equal to that of the Sr. Office Assistant classification.

In addition, with the transition of Merit Systems Services, Human Resources will be administering more written examinations. For examinations administered during the week, utilizing the Examination Proctor classification will allow the Human Resources Technician staff to continue to provide services to their respective clients.

Lastly, to provide better flexibility to candidates, Human Resources will be piloting the administration of written examinations for open recruitments on Saturday’s to allow for more candidates who are currently employed during the week to attend. Instead of using regular staff to administer these examinations (which would require flexing schedules, comp time, or overtime), the Examination Proctor classification will be utilized.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could choose not to adopt the class specification and direct Human Resources to continue business as usual or utilize other classifications to administer written and performance examinations.
