Classification project

Classification project

Career Progression Classification Project CP2 - Information Technology Career Family

In 2017, Compensation and Classification Services (CCS) embarked on a project to develop an updated classification framework for the Information Technology (IT) Career Family. The purpose of this project is to update and/or create new classifications which provide consistency, clearly describe both the duties and scope of responsibility for each classification, and supports employee development.

Why is DHR doing this?

In the 2019 Employee Engagement survey over 2000 executive branch respondents feel unclear career paths is a barrier in developing their skills. In addition, many existing current classifications are out-of-date and do not reflect the current work being performed.
