The compensation survey commissioned by Ascension Parish President Kenny Matassa shows that Parish Government is positioned for success and competitive with its regional peers.
Results of the survey, which were presented to the Council’s Finance Committee Tuesday night, show the Parish offers excellent benefits to its employees; the Parish retirement plan is fully funded; the health insurance program was praised for its focus on wellness care and portability.
In other findings, the Parish has a low turnover rate and a comparable salary structure to other parishes and municipalities.
Among the recommendations: 1) readjustment of market-based salary ranges for all positions, 2) work to bring all employees into salary range for their position, and 3) consolidation of similar positions and the creation of lines of progression.
“Overall, the survey found our compensation on target and SSA has made recommendations for additional improvement,” said President Matassa. “I will move forward with the Council to implement these recommendations and make Ascension more successful and better positioned to attract a talented workforce.”
