State Classified Employees Compensation and Benefits Opinion Survey
The Division of Human Resources for the Department of Personnel and Administration (DPA) encourages employees to participate in the online State Classified Employees Compensation and Benefits Opinion Survey. The survey is open to all permanent classified state employees. Responses provide vital information used by DPA to make more informed decisions regarding priorities and funding recommendation for the state personnel system's compensation package. Input is also used to respond to requests from the Joint Budget Committee in the Legislature and the Governor's Office as they determine funding. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and needs to be finished in one sitting. Use this link for the English version, and this link for the Spanish version. This survey will be available through May 6, 5 p.m. For technical issues, please email Jennifer Vendetti.
