18 Initial Allocation List
Our team used OSP’s crosswalk to place your positions from their current nurse classifications into the banded nurse classifications as shown in your initial allocation list. Unless a position is currently misclassified (not typical), the crosswalk should be correct. If you have concerns about an individual position not being representative of its current nurse classification, please explain your concerns in an to & our banding team will review & respond to your concerns. A copy of your facility’s initial allocation list is located inside the front cover of your notebook.

19 Competency Assessment
The process used to determine an employee’s level (C,J,A) in career banding Compares the banded class profile to the work demonstrated by the employee Competency level rating (C,J,A) is provided for each competency in the profile An overall level of C, J or A is then determined based on the summary of all the individual competency ratings

20 Competency Assessment Steps
Gather all necessary documents Job description Performance Management form Documentation Reports Feedback from others Begin completing the blank Competency Assessment form (one for each employee)* Cut and paste job description summary Write 2-3 sentences supporting each example recognized in a competency Does the employee demonstrate competencies that fall outside the position’s level? Example: Sue Smith, Licensed Practical Nurse, demonstrates skill in dealing w acutely psychotic, suicidal & self-injurious person. Has shown skill in observing suicidal behavior & mannerism and intervening/responding appropriately when assigned to care for 3 suicidal patients over the last 2 months. This documentation supports an advanced competency. Review your documentation as it compares to the profile to determine the level of each competency (Remember, an employee may demonstrate both contributing & journey competencies under a competency: Technical Knowledge: no supervisory skills but is journey in applying professional nursing theory & techniques) Determine an overall rating based on the summary of individual competencies. Communicate ratings to the employee through discussion Record the ratings on the Aggregate Leveling Form for your work unit *form located behind Competency Assessment tab

21 Supervisor Tips Collect data throughout the year to avoid last minute recency effect Ensure that job descriptions are current Keep files on employees to collect data Put responsibility on employee to provide work examples related to competencies Use work examples not personal characteristics when completing the assessment

22 Focus on the work being performed: Consulting/Advising
Two things to avoid: Don’t document performance issues in assessment – focus only on ACTUAL SUCCESSFUL DEMONSTRATIONS OF COMPETENCY Don’t quote the profile to defend level An example of poor documentation for journey level competency in Consulting/Advising for a Professional Nurse: “Ima provides feedback and advise/counsel to nursing staff on care rendered to patient.” An example of proper documentation for a journey level competency in Consulting/Advising would be “I have observed Ima’s success when counseling 2 techs on the proper techniques for medicating DD patients with dysphasia. She also demonstrated this competency after developing a care plan, then in-servicing an LPN on how to provide care to a patient with a new portacath.”

25 Differences between CA and PM Competency Assessment Performance Management
Assesses level of work being demonstrated by the employee Uses the banded class profile as a foundation Completed at rollover Completed thereafter when changes occur (should be completed at least every 3 years) Uses CB dispute policy As competencies are developed, pay can be awarded Includes career development discussion Evaluates employee performance based on goals of work unit Uses the vision, mission and goals of the work unit as foundation Completed annually Uses PM Grievance policy Pay may be awarded if funded by legislature Includes Performance Improvement Plan if needed

26 Making it Easier for You
New shorter Performance Management form/process Dimensions are no longer listed on form Key Responsibilities are replaced by Goals and Results Still an annual process – can be combined with competency assessment cycle Training to come

27 Fully demonstrates C level competencies Fully demonstrates
DHHS Pay Guidelines Fully demonstrates C level competencies Fully demonstrates J level competencies Fully demonstrates A level competencies CRR ARR min max JMR New hires or employees who do not possess or demonstrate all of the C level competencies New hires or employees who demonstrate some of the C level competencies and some of the J level competencies New hires or employees who demonstrate some of the J level competencies and some of the A level competencies Employees who demonstrate all of the A level competencies and may be demonstrating some higher level banded class competencies

28 Pay Factors: Financial Resources - the amount of funding that a manager has available when making pay decisions. Appropriate Market Rate - the market rate applicable to the functional competencies demonstrated by the employee Internal Pay Alignment - the consistent alignment of salaries for employees who demonstrate similar required competencies in the same banded class within a work unit or organization. Required Competencies - the level of competencies that are required based on organizational business need and demonstrated on the job. This pay factor considers: Minimum qualifications for class Knowledge, skills, abilities and behaviors Related education and experience Duties and responsibilities Training, certifications, and licenses Salary Adjustment Form Handout

29 Career Band Example Professional Nurse Range Handout $54,800
Journey Market Rate $54,800 $37, $80,000 Minimum Maximum Contributing Journey Advanced $46, $ 54, $67,404 Range Handout

30 Office of State Personnel Career Banding Policy states:
SALARY DETERMINATION Office of State Personnel Career Banding Policy states: Contributing: Salaries for employees with contributing competencies should be below the journey market rate guidelines, as established by OSP, but not below the minimum of the class pay range. Journey: Salaries for employees with journey competencies should be within the journey market rate guidelines, unless business needs (budget) prevent this. Advanced: Salaries for employees with advanced competencies should be above the journey market rate guidelines, unless business needs (budget) prevent this. Salaries must not exceed maximum of the class pay range.

31 Salary Decision Worksheet
Used to document pay decisions New Hire Promotion Demotion Grade-Band Transfer Probationary to Permanent Reassignment Horizontal Transfer Competency Increase Retention Labor Market Competency Level Change Completed by the manager and sent to HR

32 Career Banding Dispute Process
For career status career banding employees only Dispute Process for career banding pay decisions only Definition of a pay decision Promotion, reassignment, CPA Not disputable if no funding Limited funding plan (priority list)

33 Career Banding Dispute Process
Four issues to appeal: Amount is less than appropriate Did not get money when pay factors indicate otherwise Competencies are not evaluated correctly (did not follow process) Management did not follow limited funding plan priorities

34 Process Steps Employee completes form
Received in HR within 15 days of salary decision Management must respond within 60 days Final decision by higher level manager – one level up from direct supervisor or can be a designee in the division

35 Management’s Role Ensure career banding concept is communicated to employees Evaluate employee’s initial competency level for career band placement Evaluate competencies at annual performance reviews (optional) Manage pay to the market rates

36 Management’s Role (cont’d.)
Provide detailed documentation for band/level placement and salary adjustments. Establish career development plans and coaching to enhance an employee’s contribution to the organization’s success. Use new processes for establishing positions, filling positions, reclassifying positions, and compensating employees. Apply pay factors equitably.

37 HR’s Role Provide initial and continued training to managers.
Consult with managers. Ensure managers are held accountable. Monitor/audit actions taken. Evaluate Band Ranges. Conduct Program assessment/evaluation.

38 Employee’s Role Take responsibility for career development.
Participate in competency assessment and career development plans. Develop competencies and skills that are valued by the organization. Contribute to the accomplishment of the organization’s mission/goals through continued demonstration of competencies. Follow dispute review process if applicable.
